Amazon renovated watching TV as we know it with an over sized USB that you can plug in and watch! With Amazon's Fire Stick, you can watch thousands of channels for free!
Amazon launched a total of two Fire Sticks; however, they look incredibly alike. Therefore, it can be hard to remember which one you purchased.
AT A GLANCE
Amazon Fire Stick TV
What Fire Stick do I have
Well, to begin with, the 4K version costs extra as it works with higher quality video. At the same time, the standard Fire TV Stick has a 1080p resolution, which is exceptional.
The buttons are also different. Making it simple to distinguish between the two. For instance, the 4K version has volume control buttons and a muting button.
The version also includes an on and off button and an LED light that you will not be able to find these in the standard version.
However, both include the control wheel, Alexa voice control, home, back, and more options. You will also have a handy forward and back button, and a pause/play button too.
A regular Fire TV Stick will cost you around $39.99 on Amazon; however, you can sometimes get a great discount, especially around Black Friday and the holidays, for $19.99.
However, if you want the Fire TV Stick 4K version, it will cost you just a bit more. They are coming in at around $49.99. But keep your eye out for their $24.99 price points.
You can also purchase the Fire TV cube, which is a bit pricier. However, it includes a built-in speaker and microphone to be able to pick up voice commands as Alexa operates it.
With the Cube, you will not need a controller, which might be a deal-breaker for some people.
However, the Fire TV Cube does not only work with WiFi. It can also connect to the Ethernet for faster connection.
You can pick one up for $119.99. However, sales always come along if you wait. If you are lucky, you might find an $89.99 deal on a Fire TV Cube!
Fire TV App
Whether you have the Standard Fire TV Stick or the new 4K version, you can connect your phone to the Fire TV App.
Just as the controller, it has most of the features of the controller. You can activate Alexa, control the TV's movement, a keyboard, and playback video and audio.
As well as gaining access to your apps and games quickly and without your remote being present. With the touch of a button, you can go back home or take a look at more options.
You will also gain access to a list of your apps and games and will be able to open them individually as well as having a look at all the Apps you can download into your TV.
The App allows you to receive feedback in the form of a small vibration to let you know it has selected what you clicked on.
You also have the choice of buttons or a directional pad that is controlled by swiping.
The bottom line
Whichever option you choose, Amazon has got you covered. Especially with so many channels available to you for free in the Fire TV Stick.
