I've noticed that when I stream Dish Anywhere from my Hopper 3 to my laptop or Iphone over my home network, it doesn't use any of my internet plan data. I'm considering purchasing a Fire stick. If I use Dish Anywhere on the Amazon Fire Stick, would it work the same way? In other words, is it streaming locally on my network?

Yes , I think it would use your network at home. You have to use a wifi network in your house to stream it to that tv it is connected to. That's how I have my 2 fire sticks hooked up.

That's what I was hoping; that the Fire Stick is retrieving the video locally and not downloading the remote stream over the internet (like it does outside your home network)

Yes, it works the same way. I use a Fire Stick for our Master Bath TV and it works great.
