The Essential Guide to the Fire TV Stick
What Does the Amazon Fire TV Stick Do?
Put simply, it brings all your bingeing needs to the big screen. No need to hunch over your laptop or tablet or, worst still, your smartphone when using apps like Netflix and Prime Video. It’s also the budget friendly alternative to buying a fancy smart TV. Plug into the back of your TV and have a whole array of new choices at your fingertips.
Will Amazon Fire TV Stick be on Sale?
As we previously mentioned, we’re confident the Fire TV Stick will see a desirable discount across the Prime Day 2019 festivities. One of the most popular products we saw selling last year, with a £15 discount, down to £24.99, Amazon is always generous with the offers it includes on its own range of devices and we don’t think this year will be any different.
What are the Fire TV Stick 4K Specs?
Much like Amazon’s other products, there are a few Fire TV Stick options to choose from based on what you want out of it. The Fire TV Stick 4K is the elite member of the team, offering you the crispest resolution on offer when bringing your streaming services to the marginally bigger screen. Unlike the original Fire TV Stick, the 4K edition comes with a 4K Ultra HD picture quality, as well as a faster processor with the Quad-core 1.7GHz. To truly bring the experience to life, the Fire TV Stick 4K also supports Dolby Atmos unlike the original’s Doby Audio support. With only a £10 price different at both their original RRPs, it’s a no brainer if you’re already boasting a 4K TV.
Is There a Monthly Fee for the Fire TV Stick?
For the Fire TV Stick itself, there is only the standalone cost of the device itself and any accessories you choose to buy. Depending on what you decide to use your Fire Stick for depends on any external monthly fees. For example, if you wish to use Netflix, this comes with its own subscription, much like Amazon’s own streaming service, Prime Video. You also have the option of lots of free services, too. Use on demand services like iPlayer for BBC and All4 for Channel 4 shows and box sets. You can also access YouTube for all those sacred how-tos, as well as a lot of nifty smart home functions if you also purchase the Alexa remote as a companion to your Fire TV Stick.
How Do You Set-Up the Fire TV Stick?
Setting up your Fire TV Stick is easy. We’d wager you could even do it in your sleep (maybe). You can choose to either plug into your HDMI port or the wall outlet, although Amazon recommends using a HDMI extender to achieve a stronger Wi-Fi signal and ensure a buffer-less viewing experience. Then simply connect the device to your Internet and away you go towards bingeing bliss.
What Does Now TV Offer?
Much like the Fire TV Stick, Now TV Streaming boxes can be plugged into your television, opening you up to even more choice than you’d otherwise get through a basic Freeview TV. You can download and pick the apps you want, including viewing on demand services on the big screen, as well as bringing together all the streaming services you subscribe to.
With Now TV you can even get access to Sky passes, allowing you to enter into their library of blockbuster films and award winning entertainment. Also choose from kids passes and passes to other channels like Hayu, the idea being you can enjoy a range of TV and film choice without subscribing to those much larger, pricier packages that you’re locked into for at least 12 months.
How Much Does Now TV Cost in the UK?
Whether it’s Netflix or one of the Now TV passes, all services come with their own monthly cost. When it comes to Now TV passes, much like Netflix or Prime Video, there is a free trial available with the length dependent on which service it is. For instance, get the Entertainment pass with 11 channels available and get seven days free, after which pay £7.99 a month. Hayu also comes with a seven-day free trial, but costs just £3.99 a month as one standalone channel. Really, Now TV is what you make it. Shape it into your own personal hub of pure entertainment.
