amazon fire tv stick

Amazon's Fire TV Stick is coming to the UK on April 15th. It costs £35, but if you order before 9am on Thursday, you can get a heavy discount.

Take out a new Amazon Prime subscription before Thursday, and you can get the device for just £7. You will have to pay £79 a year for Prime, but that gets you free one-day delivery on Amazon orders, and Prime Instant Video, Amazon's TV and film streaming service.

If you already have Prime, you can pick the device up for £19, which is still a significant saving.

Otherwise, you'll have to pay the full £35.

Fire TV Stick is just like Fire TV, but it's the size of a USB dongle instead of a set-top box. Plug it into the HDMI port on your TV, and you can stream music, movies and TV shows from the internet, using either Prime Instant Video or other services like BBC iPlayer and Netflix.

Prime Instant Video has a bumper crop of films, as well as homegrown TV series like 'Transparent' and 'Alpha House'.

It's not the only streaming device to make waves this week. Google's Nexus Player is thought to land on Thursday in the UK, after it popped up on Amazon. It has since been yanked, so we'll have to wait and see. Apple TV will also get a refresh this June, according to rumours. The box should lay the groundwork for Apple's new streaming service.
