Amazon has just announced a new product that could make an awesome gift for someone on your shopping list this holiday season! Even if you’re not yet in the holiday shopping mood, you might want to reconsider if you’re an Amazon Prime member!
For the next two days only – ending tomorrow night, October 28 – Amazon Prime members will be able to pre-order the Amazon Fire TV Stick for just $19! The normal retail price of this product will be $39, so this is a heck of a discount! The Fire TV Stick will ship out on November 19.
The Amazon Fire TV Stick is a smaller version of the Amazon Fire TV (which you all know I LOVE). The Fire TV Stick works more like a Chromecast in that you hook plug the small stick directly into your television and then use the remote to find the shows you want to watch. The Fire TV isn’t much different, except that the box is larger and contains more memory. Here’s a handy dandy comparison:
You WILL be able to use the Fire TV Stick to stream your favorite shows from sites like Hulu and Netflix, and Amazon Prime members will have access to Prime Instant Video, which includes the HBO Collection. My husband and I primarily use our Kindle Fire TV for Amazon Instant Video at this point.
For just $19, this really is an amazing deal especially if you were looking for a new tech gift for someone on your shopping list… or just a cheaper way to stream channels to your TV!
