The Amazon Fire TV Stick has quickly become one of the most popular ways to make an old TV 'smart' because it allows you to access all your favourite apps, subscriptions and channels in one easy-to-manage place.

Prices start at £29.99 for the Amazon Fire TV Stick Lite, which offers HD streaming and voice control in a small streaming stick that can be hidden behind the TV.

At the other end of the spectrum, you will find the pricier Fire TV Cube. As the most powerful Fire TV device, it doubles up as an Echo smart speaker and a streaming player. However, these additional features do come at a higher price.

Not to worry, Amazon often likes to discount its own devices throughout the year, especially the Fire TV Stick and Echo Dot devices. To help you decide which of the Amazon Fire TV Sticks is right for you, we've rounded up the cheapest prices for each device, so that you know you're getting the best offer available.

The original Amazon Fire TV Stick was updated in 2020 and now comes with power and volume controls on the Alexa Voice Remote.

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K | £49.99

Fire TV Stick 4K

The Fire TV Stick 4K is the cheapest Fire TV device to offer 4K as well as HD streaming. It supports Dolby Vision, HDR10+ and Dolby Atmos, and has those dedicated volume and power buttons that are so popular on the original Fire TV Stick.

Amazon Fire TV Cube | £109.99

Amazon Fire TV Cube

The Fire TV Cube is the most powerful Fire TV device, and the most expensive. There are no big discounts on the streaming player at the moment, but it offers streaming in Ultra HD and 4K and provides the same support as the 4K Stick for Dolby Vision, HDR, HDR10+ and Dolby Atmos. The voice control is also the most sophisticated and allows you to control your TV and Alexa compatible devices hands-free.

What is the Amazon Fire TV Stick?

The Amazon Fire TV Stick is a device that you plug into the back of your TV and allows you to stream shows from subscription services such as Netflix, Disney+ and Amazon Prime Video. It looks a little like a USB stick and slots into the HDMI ports found in the back of your TV. These streaming sticks can be a brilliant way to upgrade an old TV and watch streaming services on a bigger screen rather than a laptop.

What types of Amazon Fire TV Stick are there?

There are three Amazon Fire TV Stick models to choose from and prices range from £29.99 to £49.99 RRP. In addition to these, there is also the Fire TV Cube, which has the capacity to be used as a smart speaker as well as a Fire TV device.

Amazon recently released a new Alexa Voice Remote. It is available for £29.99 on its own, or £39.99 with the Amazon Fire TV Stick. New features on the remote include shortcuts to services such as Amazon Prime Video and Disney+.

Which Amazon Fire TV Stick should you buy?

Amazon Fire TV Stick Lite

Fire TV Stick Lite

If you simply want to upgrade an old TV and use it to stream your favourite Prime Video TV shows, the Fire TV Stick Lite is a great option. Newly released in 2020, this smart TV stick is the cheapest Fire TV device yet and offers no-fuss HD streaming. Read our Amazon Fire TV Stick Lite review for more details.

Amazon Fire TV Stick 

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Black Friday discount

Updated in 2020, the new Amazon Fire TV Stick also streams in HD. One of the biggest differences between the Fire TV Stick and the cheaper Lite is that the original smart TV stick now has power and volume buttons on the Alexa Voice remote. Not a major upgrade but it does save you from swapping between remotes. Read our Amazon Fire TV Stick (2020) review to find out how it compares to its predecessor.

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K

Fire TV Stick 4K

The cheapest way to get 4K streaming on a Fire TV device. It also supports Dolby Vision, HDR, HDR10+ and Dolby Atmos and has the superior Alexa Voice remote with the extra TV controls. Fantastic for those who want to get the most out of a 4K TV.

Amazon Fire TV Cube

Amazon Fire TV Cube

Read our Amazon Fire TV Cube review to find out why we think this device is brilliant for anyone who's been looking to purchase Amazon's own devices for a while because it combines two-in-one. The Fire TV Cube is a fully-fledged Echo smart speaker with the added benefit of 4K streaming and all your streaming services in one place. If you've considered buying both an Echo and Fire TV Stick and have not yet taken the plunge, the Fire TV Cube is an ideal purchase for you.
