You only need 1 modem, the modem is part of your internet connection. So you do need an internet connection to the cable/phone company typically, that is provided through the modem, and then you may have a separate wifi router if the wifi is not built into the modem already. The wifi can then provide a wireless connection to each of your firesticks.

Each tv would need its own antenna if you are wanting to pick up local stations. Here is an antenna I'd recommend: http://amzn.to/2jxcOxs

Sling can be used on the firestick on each of your tvs (1 stick per tv).

Both the stick and antenna are easily plugged into the back of each tv, there really isn't much of anything else needed for installation and can all be done yourself if you wish.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.

Thank you, ***** ***** a nice day,

Nathan
