Why it's worth it

Amazon's best-selling Fire TV Stick is a do-it-all device that gives you access to thousands of channels, Alexa skills and apps, including Netflix and Disney+, plus movies and TV episodes included in your Prime membership.

The latest generation of the best-selling Fire TV Device is 50 per cent more powerful than its predecessor and allows for fast streaming in full HD.

Users can search and launch shows across apps using just their voice with the remote's Alexa Voice function. Additionally, tech-savvy shoppers can use the remote to view live camera feeds, check the weather and stream music.

What others are saying

As one of Amazon's best-known devices, it's no surprise the Fire TV Stick has racked up more than 46,000 reviews, a 4.7-star average rating and an "Amazon's Choice" title.

It "revolutionizes your TV experience," writes one shopper. It's "magic in a tiny package."

The Fire TV Stick is "your ticket to a world of endless entertainment," they continue. It "elevates" any regular TV to a "full-fledged media station."

Reviewers say the do-it-all remote is easy to set up and navigate.

It "beats every other streaming device I've had," raves one shopper.

Despite thousands of five-star reviews, some users note the menu can be "laggy" and dislike seeing ads on the home screen.

"I paid in full" for the Fire TV stick and "I pay my [subscriptions]," writes one shopper. "I shouldn't be getting ads [on] my home screen."

Described as "your ticket to a world of endless entertainment" by Amazon shoppers, reviewers promise the Fire TV Stick "revolutionizes your TV experience."
