Are you still laboring under the weight of a cable TV bill every month? That's sooo last decade. Isn't it time to do something about this? (Spoiler alert: It is!) And there's never been a better opportunity to take care of that bit of business: We give you the new Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K for just $25 at Amazon's Cyber Monday sale. Note: Most Black Friday deals are still going strong across the web too!
Why is this a good Cyber Monday deal?
This is the latest model of the Fire TV Stick. The previous iteration dropped lower, but this updated one — which supports Wi-Fi 6 — has never been this cheap.
Why do I need this?
Here's how to use it: Simply plug the Fire TV Stick 4K into one of your 4K TV’s HDMI ports and the streaming device will immediately search for your home’s Wi-Fi network and wait for you to log in. (If your TV is less than 10 years old, it's probably a 4K model. The term "4K" just refers to the resolution of the screen.)
What's the difference between this gadget and the other Fire Sticks? Aside from the fact that it can reach 4K resolution — hence the name — it's a solid mid-range option. Any model that supports 4K has virtually the same features, but some have slightly faster processors for navigating the menus or streaming games through Amazon Luna.
You’ll find fun interactive settings like pop-up results for actor and director names via IMDb. Need to check in on the news, weather or sports scores? The Alexa voice assistant is at your service.
What reviewers say
"This turned my slow LG smart TV into a streaming machine. I love the remote and how easily it pairs with the TV. Bluetooth pairing with headphones is perfect. Will be buying more of these...," one fan raved.
"I love this Fire Stick. It's so much faster than the old version. Worth every penny. Can't wait to upgrade my TV so that it can truly be used the way it was meant to be used," one customer said.
Another wrote, "I love my new Fire TV Stick! I had an old one and wanted to upgrade, and this is perfect. It remembered and uploaded all my streaming channels, it couldn't have been easier. The only thing I would recommend is that they should have a longer cord for the power."
Indeed, the Fire TV Stick 4K is one of the best ways to instantly add video streaming to your TV without getting a new set. Cheers to that.
