Streaming is increasingly becoming the way many people consume TV shows and movies today. One of the more budget-friendly, yet fully-featured streaming devices for folks who lack a smart TV that supports integrated streaming is the Amazon Fire TV Stick. That device is normally $39.99 making it decently affordable every day.
Anyone that has been considering the purchase of a streaming device for their TV will want to check out the deal Amazon has going for Prime members. Amazon's Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote is selling for $24.99 right now. That price is only good if you are a Prime subscriber.
For those unfamiliar with the Fire TV Stick, this device allows you to stream content from just about every streaming network and service out there. The big services supported include Netflix, Prime Video, Hulu, HBO, Showtime, NBC, and others. Philo TV landed on Amazon Fire devices back in April. The current generation Fire TV Stick has web surfing capability with access to websites like Facebook and others right from the TV screen using Silk and Firefox browsers.
Users can watch Live TV and sports via AMC, HGTV, ESPN, Fox, and other networks using DIRECTV NOW and Sling TV. The Fire TV Stick plugs directly into an HDMI port on your TV; if there isn’t a port free, you'll need to make that happen. The voice remote allows you to search for what you want to see across all the apps and launch specific services by saying the service name. A WiFi network is required for streaming. Amazon also has a bundle that includes the Fire TV Stick and an Echo Dot for $74.98, that is a $10 discount off the normal price.
