Offering a class-leading selection of streaming services, the latest edition (3rd generation) claims to be twice as powerful as last year’s model, making navigation a breeze, and it’s available for a paltry £24.99 as part of the e-tailer’s early Black Friday sale.
This version of the Fire TV stick has Alexa voice control built-in, which means you won’t have to fiddle with an onscreen search every time you feel the need for some Gerard Butler action, and it streams in Full HD clarity.
Installation and setup are easy, so technophobes have nothing to fear. The Fire TV stick simply plugs into a spare HDMI input on your TV and connects to home Wi-Fi. You can use it in your main living room set, or in a second TV in an office or bedroom.
It’s built for bingeing – all the big streaming services are onboard, including Netflix, Prime Video, Disney+ and YouTube, plus mainstream catch-up TV players (BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All4, My5).
There’s even music providers, like Spotify and Tidal, plus simple arcade games for when you’re in the mood.
The likes of Netflix and Disney+ require a subscription, but available apps like Pluto TV have plenty of free stuff to watch too. If you’ve only ever streamed from these services on a smartphone or tablet, here’s the perfect opportunity to upgrade your viewing.
One final feature many overlook is Bluetooth support. You can pair your Bluetooth wireless headphones to the Fire TV stick for private listening, which is great if you want to catch a film late at night without disturbing the rest of the house.
84 per cent of Amazon buyers give the Fire TV stick a five star rating, so there’s clearly a lot of happy viewers out there.
“If you have been looking to get a Fire stick, but are on the fence, I urge you to get down from it and buy one.”
“It also works with any TV which has an HDMI port. My TV is around 10 years old and this device works perfectly.”
“The Wi-Fi on the device is really good, my router is three levels down and this little device still picks up a fab signal.”
