If you’ve been looking for a way to bring your telly up to technological speed so you can enjoy endless streaming this winter, here’s a way to do that doesn’t involve buying a flashy new one or sending your bank manager into meltdown.
You can do it for just £18.99, in fact. How? Because Amazon is selling its Fire TV Stick Lite with Alexa Voice Remote HD streaming device (2020 release) at 37 per cent off the RRP (it’s usually £29.99).
The device, about the size of a USB stick, is small and unassuming but oh-so mighty. It allows you to watch scores of TV series, documentaries, shows and films at the touch of a button.
Easy for even the most technologically challenged to install, simply plug it into your TV’s HDMI port and in mere minutes, your box will be transformed into a smart TV, opening the floodgates to content from streaming and catch-up services like Amazon Video, Netflix, YouTube, Disney+, and more. Some require a subscription but many are payment free.
That’s not all. You can also listen to music through Amazon Music, Spotify and Apple Music, or discover new favourites through TuneIn Radio.
Best of all, it’s highly portable too – just unplug and take all your favourite movies and shows with you on trips away. With great sound and crystal clear picture quality, it’s the perfect addition to your home entertainment kit.
A star buy at just £18.99, this is one of the best deals we’ve seen in the Amazon Prime Day sales.
The Amazon Fire TV Cube is also on sale, from £109.99 to just £59.99, a saving of 45 per cent.
This boxy device still plugs into your HDMI port but sits beside your TV and uses built-in Alexa to control live TV channels from Sky. It can also turn the telly on, dim lights and play the content you want to watch from simple voice commands. The only thing it can't do is whip up some popcorn. Is this the future of home entertainment? One thing's for sure: it won't cost the earth to find out.
