Whether you’re looking to watch a box set on Amazon Prime to get you through lockdown, stream new episodes of your go-to show or check out the latest movie on Netflix, the best TV streaming devices make for an easy way to stream everything on your telly, even if you don't have a smart TV. Amazon’s best streaming box is the Fire TV Cube, and it’s currently 45% off, bringing it down to £59.99 from £109.99.

One of our favourites from our roundup of the best streamers, this model scored an impressive 85/100 in our tests. The Fire TV Cube gives you the benefits of Amazon's streaming devices and its Echo speakers in one gadget, and it delivers faster performance than all the other Fire TV devices.

Our testers liked how it has eight far-field microphones that allow you to speak to Alexa and control your TV from anywhere in the room. That’s unlike other Fire TV Sticks that require you to press an Alexa button on the remote control. You can ask the voice assistant to play specific shows, skip forward or backwards on the programme you're watching, and also control your smart home devices or give you a news or weather update.

The GHI also liked that it comes with built-in parental controls so you can set a password or code for buying videos. Like all the other Fire TV devices, this little cube allows you to stream the likes of Netflix, ITV Player, All 4 and iPlayer on your TV. It also lets you watch shows available in Ultra HD on a compatible TV.

There wasn’t much our testers didn’t like about this device, although they did mention that they’d have liked it if you didn’t have to supply your own HDMI cable and that it would be good if it had a MicroSD card slot to expand its storage. These are small flaws rather than dealbreakers, though, and we think this is a deal worth taking advantage of, especially with this massive discount. It won’t stay at this price for long, so don’t wait around to grab a Fire TV Cube on Amazon.
