Amazon Fire TV Stick

 

The new Amazon Fire TV Stick is the service's second generation of its cheapest video streaming device. It aims itself squarely at rivals such as Google Chromecast Ultra and Roku Streaming Stick, squeezing all of its streaming know-how into a...

They might be subtle improvements, but the new Fire TV Stick is all the better for having them.

Amazon Fire TV Stick review

 

If you're an Amazon customer the Fire TV stick is a no-brainer, but does it have broad appeal?

Easy to use ; Speedy operation ; Low price

Missing Now TV and 4oD services ; Remote has no voice control ; Amazon hard-sell is a little strong

A lovely little streaming device and a no-brainer for Amazon customers

Amazon Fire TV Stick review: is this small streamer ready for the big league?

 

It may be small in size but this streamer is kind of a big deal

Tiny ; unobtrusive device ; Cheap ; Lots of content ; lots of apps

You really need to have Prime ; Needs a charger

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K review: Superbly priced Prime streamer

 

The value of the Fire Stick 4K can't be questioned compared to its rivals. Even for non Amazon Prime subscribers it's a great 4K HDR hub too.

Ideal hub for 4K HDR content - including Amazon Prime / Netflix / more ; Simple plug-in design ; Supports Dolby Vision / HDR / HDR10+ / Dolby Atmos

Ocassional connection issues require a reset ; Fat design can clash with other HDMI ports

The value of Amazon's 4K device can’t be questioned compared to its rivals, making this a great access point to streaming services beyond just Amazon's own Prime portal, including Netflix and more. Many shows are now in 4K HDR, too, so a compatible TV...

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K review

 

Is it worth upgrading to the new 4K-flavoured Amazon streamer?

Great price for 4K HDR ; Solid app selection ; Speedy performance ; New power and volume buttons on remote

No Now TV app ; Not much 4K HDR content ; Limited Alexa abilities for non-Amazon apps ; Lame YouTube support

The best 4K streaming stick you can buy

Amazon Fire TV Stick review: Stick it to 'em

 

While it has been available in the US since the end of last year, the Amazon Fire TV Stick finally makes its way across the pond for release in the UK and, thanks to a combination of attractive price point and rich feature set, could end up being a...

Speedy and smooth operation, great library of casual games, beefy processor and RAM, good sized storage for such a device

Requires the included power adapter for use, some UK catch-up services missing, only get the most with Prime membership

Amazon has made its intentions clear with the Fire TV Stick. It has priced it aggressively (a touch more expensive than the Chromecast, quite a bit cheaper than the Roku) but offers a lot more for the money – certainly in terms of internal tech.

Amazon Fire TV Stick review

 

Here boy! Amazon throws a streaming TV stick into the Christmas mix. Now fetch!

Cheap, well made and easy to use ; Good audio and video quality ; Fun one-button casual gaming ; Great deal for Prime members

Slower than its big brother ; No voice search ; Fewer apps than rivals

Compact and competent, but if you're spending all that money on Prime anyway, go for the full fat Fire TV

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K review

 

Amazon's on fire

Supports 4K streaming ; Speedy user interface ; Fantastic variety of content ; Amazon Alexa voice assistance

UI biased towards Amazon ; Performance varies between apps

The inclusion of 4K support makes the new Fire TV Stick a brilliant option for all your streaming needs – although a lack of equity across different platforms means that Amazon hasn’t quite achieved perfection yet.

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K

 

It's the Fire Stick on steroids: for your £50 or $50 you get 4K HDR, Dolby Atmos plus the Alexa remote.
