Picking up a streaming device is a simple way to upgrade your existing entertainment hub. If you've been considering investing in a media streamer for your TV, check out Fire TV devices. Amazon is currently offering Fire TV products in either HD or 4K resolution at up to 40% off, making it a great time to make the move. We don't know when this sale will end, so we recommend placing your order soon to snag a Fire TV media streamer for as little as $25.
Wondering which streaming device you should choose? If you don't have a 4K TV or aren't particularly worried about streaming in the highest resolution, the Amazon Fire TV Stick can upgrade your regular HD TV by granting you access to all the top streaming services, apps and voice controls that have become an essential part of contemporary smart TV designs. You can score the HD one for $27 right now.
Streaming lets you cut cable without sacrificing entertainment, as the Fire TV stick will help you access more than 190 channels and apps, though keep in mind some require a subscription. The Alexa voice remote can help you search for something to watch in seconds. And if you have Echo devices, you can pair them, too.
And if you have a 4K TV and want to take advantage of 4K high-definition streaming, consider the Fire TV Stick 4K or our favorite Fire TV Stick, the Fire TV Stick 4K Max. It remains our pick for the best Fire TV Stick overall. These devices include the ability to set up profiles for anyone in your household to get personalized recommendations, and support for Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos audio. And the Max supports Wi-Fi 6.
Since the price has been knocked down by 40%, you can get the Fire TV Stick 4K for $30 right now, or grab the 4K Max for just $5 more. And if you want the total powerhouse, the Fire TV Cube also offers 4K streaming and is the fastest streamer in this sale -- it's twice as powerful as the Fire TV Stick 4K Max and it's $125 right now. It has Wi-Fi 6E support, along with support for Dolby Vision, HDR and Dolby Atmos. All three of these devices will work with non-4K TVs, but you'll be limited to whatever your TV's maximum resolution is, so it's only a great deal if you have a 4K TV or plan to get one soon.
Another great feature of having a plug-and-play media streamer is that you can take your TV access with you when you're away from home. Both devices work with HD TVs, so you can take your device with you to a friend's house or on vacation and plug it in to get access to all your content. You can even play music through your TV through music streaming apps. Note: You must have a Wi-Fi connection for this device to work.
Amazon offers a number of Fire TV stick models, including a Fire TV Stick Lite, which is marked down to $25 currently, making it the cheapest streamer in the sale selection. While it doesn't sport as many features as some of the other models, it makes for a great upgrade for bringing some intelligence to an older TV. And if you want more online viewing options and additional security from external ISP snooping, you can always add a Fire TV Stick VPN service for as little as $2 a month.
