amazon fire tv stick with alexa voice remote

Amazon's Black Friday sale has started early, and one of the best savings is on the firm's Fire TV Stick streaming device.

Amazon has dropped the price to just £24.99. That's £15 off the usual price of £39.99, representing a saving of 38 per cent.

The Fire TV Stick turns any TV with an HDMI port into a smart TV. Just plug it into your HDMI socket, and it connects to the internet using your home wi-fi network.

It brings all manner of streaming services to your TV, including Amazon Prime Video, BBC iPlayer, Netflix, ITV Hub, YouTube and more.

It comes bundled with the Alexa remote, which lets you control it just by speaking. Say "Launch Netflix," for example, and it will. Or you can command it to fast forward 10 minutes.

Because it connects to the internet, it can also play music, search for restaurants and more.

Unlike the more expensive Amazon Fire TV, it doesn't have 4K, however, so you'll have to make do with high definition shows and films. 4K is a resolution with four times as many pixels as HD, making for a much sharper image. But if you don't have a 4K TV, there's not point in watching in 4K, as you won't see any difference.

Amazon's sale lasts until 11:59pm on Sunday night. But then Monday is Cyber Monday, so expect more sales on all manner of TV and tech products then.
