Amazon Fire TV review: the best-value 4K streaming box?


With a quicker processor and Ultra HD streaming capabilities, does Amazon's new box do enough to impress?

Easy to set up ; Simple slick interface ; Can do basic 4K

Really needs Prime ; Non-universal search ; Some codec limitations

Easy to use ; Good AV performance ; 4K! ; Power and speed

Amazon platform could be more open

Amazon Fire TV 4K review: Ultra HD frills for the masses


The Fire TV is Amazon's fastest selling product of all time, both in its original set-top-box and streaming stick forms. It has beaten Kindle and Fire tablets, oh, and the phone of course, although that one has since been swept under the carpet....

Superfast menu system thanks to quad-core processor, 4K Ultra HD video playback, dual-band dual-antenna Wi-Fi, microSD card slot for storage expansion, thousands of shows and movies available

Not that much 4K content is on the platform yet, Ultra HD movies are very expensive, if you haven’t got an Amazon Prime or Prime Instant Video membership you won’t get the most from it

Amazon's second-generation Fire TV box is a real step forward in the media streaming sector and considering the popularity of the first one is bound to be the device chosen by many families up and down the UK as their main living room device.

Amazon Fire TV 4K HDR (2017): Amazon launches new version of its streaming ‘stick’


Amazon's all-new Fire TV dongle supports 4K and HDR for just £70

All we’re waiting for now is the broadcast giants such as the BBC to make their services available in 4K as well.

Amazon Fire TV 4K with Ultra HD review


The Fire TV is a rival to the Apple TV, Chromecast and Roku's media streamers. This second-generation version now supports 4K video, and is one of the first to do so. Should you buy it? Find out in our Amazon Fire TV 4K review.

The Fire TV is an excellent set-top box which is powerful and well designed. The voice search works well too, and Alexa is coming, which will make it far better. The interface is slick and easy to use, even if it can be confusing working out what you...

Amazon Fire TV (2015) review


The selection of set-top boxes available to Brits is growing fast and becoming more competitive, with a host of streaming tech from the likes of Sky, Apple and Roku vying for your cash. Amazon is a high-profile competitor, and its latest streaming...

The Amazon Fire TV offers a healthy -- if not quite complete -- selection of UK streaming apps, via a responsive interface. Parental controls and support are top-notch. Voice search from the remote works very well. It's the least expensive external...

Popular apps such as Netflix, iPlayer and others take a back seat to Amazon's own TV shows and movies. The Alexa digital assistant doesn't work in the UK. Search results prioritise Amazon, and often hide results from other providers even if you've...

The 2015 Fire TV is a potent streamer with 4K capability, voice search and a solid selection of UK apps, but it tries too hard to serve up Amazon's own TV shows and movies.

Amazon Fire TV 4K (2015 edition): Review – in depth


Amazon Fire TV 4K (2015 edition) Review: We take a look at Amazon's new Fire TV box, which blasts 4K Ultra HD streaming content into your living room.

Excellent user interface ; Powerful search and recommendations tools ; Almost every 4K service available in one place

Search and X-ray limited to Amazon services

4K content on the new Fire TV box positively shimmers. It does everything that the other Fire TV devices already do and while there’s something of a trickle of 4K content available now, what is there is nice enough for the time being and we’re...

Amazon Fire TV 4K HDR review: Amazon's streamer is pure TV gold


Amazon's latest Fire TV does 4K and HDR, and it does them well

Easy to use ; Voice control built in ; Support for HDR10

No Now TV or Google Movies and TV app ; Not all Alexa functions supported

If you own Google Home or Chromecast audio, I’d recommend the Chromecast Ultra instead, and if Sky Now is a priority, then the Roku Streaming Stick+ makes more sense, but as an all-rounder, even considering its limitations, the Amazon Fire TV with 4K...

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K review: Amazon's cheapest 4K streamer


Adds UHD HDR playback, but Amazon's streamer only has a clear advantage over 4K smart TVs when used with an Echo device

Cheap ; 4K HDR support ; Alexa voice control works well

Can’t be powered by some TVs ; No access to Now TV

Add the ability to search and control video playback with your voice, either via the remote or your existing Alexa speakers, and you have the best-value 4K streaming stick on the market. As a performance improvement to sluggish smart TV apps or a way...
