Amazon slashes the price of its popular streamer – the Fire TV Stick and Fire TV Stick 4K are now cheaper than ever before
If you love watching all the latest content on the big screen, you’ll want a TV streamer. Amazon’s Fire TV Stick and Fire TV Stick 4K are among the most popular streaming devices you’ll find on the market. The latter supports up to 4K streaming with HDR, which means you’ll get a much sharper stream if you’ve got a 4K television to plug it into, and it also supports Dolby Atmos, provided you have the right speakers.

Both of Amazon’s devices are relatively inexpensive, with the regular model at £40 and the 4K variant at £50. However, during the two-day Prime Day event, both of these have had a 50% reduction in price for Prime customers. They’re available for £20 and £25, respectively – that’s the cheapest they’ve ever been.

You might be wondering: do I need a streamer? If your TV doesn’t have any built-in smart features, you’ll be missing out on the latest shows from Netflix, Prime Video, Disney and Curzon among a few others. But what makes these streamers stand out from its competitors is Alexa. Amazon’s virtual assistant is built in to the bundled remote; you can ask Alexa for the weather, to play your favourite songs via your TV’s speakers or soundbar and even order items through your Amazon account, too.
