As part of Amazons limited-time holiday deals, the all-new Amazon Fire Stick, regularly $39.99, is going for $29.99, the Amazon Fire Stick 4K, once $49.99, for $39.99, and the Amazon Fire Stick Lite, usually $29.99, for just $17.99. That matches the Black Friday 2020 pricing!
Of the three, we most recommend the Amazon Fire Stick 4K, which ranks among the best streaming devices we've ever tested. Shoppers love it too: It’s racked up more than 400,000 reviews on Amazon, more than 330,000 of which are 5-star.
Even if you’ve got already got an older Fire Stick, you’ll likely want to upgrade to the 4K version, which allows for higher resolution on 4K and HDR-compatible devices.This improved device also includes easy access to more diverse non-Amazon Prime content, such as Disney+, Netflix, YouTube, Hulu and AppleTV+.
As an added bonus, our Home Theater Editor, Lee Neikirk, notes that "handling 4K content means that the newer 4K-capable Fire TV Stick is generally faster to load and stream things overall—even if you're not watching in 4K just yet." All in all, we think this Stick is an excellent, budget-friendly choice.
Looking for something even more affordable? Check out the Fire Stick Lite, which is just $17.99 on the site right now. The main difference in comparison to the regular Fire Stick, according to our tech team, is the slightly slower hardware and the lack of a Dolby Atmos passthrough. This less expensive model also won't control your TV's power or volume, but for those looking for a basic, budget-friendly option, it will do just fine.
There's no guarantee on the stock, so you’ll want to get on these deals soon. Happy streaming!
