One big caveat - if you're behind a firewall/wifi-router, 5555 from the Internet is blocked. So, if you have an address like 192.168.x.x, or 10.x.x.x, you're fine - the Internet cannot regularly access your Fire Stick.

In theory, yes. But I'd bet almost all the devices showing up on Shodan are connected to home Wi-Fi routers. Unless there's some reason I don't know of, I can't imagine many people are plugging their Fire TV devices directly into cable or DSL modems without a router as intermediary.
