Amazon beat Apple to the punch when it comes to delivering a 4K-capable set-top streaming box.

It does everything you expect a media streamer to do with little fuss and a reasonable price tag.

Pint-sized streamer with something to prove

from TechRadar
If you've already bought into Amazon's ecosphere, the Fire TV Stick will be the proverbial rug that ties the room together – it's fast, responsive and works flawlessly with Amazon's infrastructure. If you aren't an Amazon insider, however, consider the other streaming options before you buy... Full review

Primed to entertain

from Tom's Guide
The Amazon Fire TV Stick is a competent streaming device, whether you buy it with a voice-enabled remote or a standard model. It’s not very powerful, though, and it puts Amazon Prime content front and center. This is perfect for Amazon subscribers, but of limited utility to everyone else... Full review

A great value TV streamer

from Alphr
Amazon’s Fire TV Stick is a decent bit of kit. It’s cheap at £35 (£45 for the voice-enabled remote isn't bad either), and in some ways it’s more flexible than Google’s Chromecast. The bundled remote control means anyone can pick up the remote and use it without having to get to grips with the casting side of things. We’re also pleased to see support for dual-band networks, while its nippy performance makes it much more of a pleasure to use than the Roku Streaming Stick... Full review

Fantastic 4K from the latest little black box

from Mirror
As before, the box runs on Amazon’s re-skinned version Android OS, which is slick and simple to navigate, but lacks the range of apps available on Google’s Play Store. A lot of recent Smart TV’s already have access to 4K-ready Netflix and Amazon apps, and perhaps won’t see much benefit here. However, for early adopters of Ultra HD sets and owners of budget 4K TVs that don’t have the required HEVC encoder built-in, this is something of a godsend, allowing them access to the sort of content they originally bought their set for...

Amazon's Chromecast killer

from Sunday Express

Granted, the Roku Streaming Stick, which starts from £49.99, boasts more streaming services and Google’s Chromecast offers a tighter integration to the hugely popular Android ecosystem. But the Fire TV Stick is a lightening fast and intuitive way to stream Amazon Prime televisions series and movies. And even if you have no interest in the Seattle firm’s latest, exclusive shows – the Fire TV Stick remains a sleek interface to access the latest content from BBC iPlayer, Netflix, or stream your favourite Spotify playlists through a home cinema sound system. With a compe... Full review

One of the easiest and cheapest ways to make your TV smarter

from TrustedReviews
If you want a streaming stick that's hassle-free and just works, then the Fire TV Stick is definitely worth considering. Amazon's approach is so much slicker than its rivals. Some may well grumble that you need to be signed up to Amazon Prime to make it worthwhile, but there's still plenty of content you can access without it... Full review

Stream if you wanna go faster

from Mirror

The Amazon Fire TV Stick is an excellent option if you want to get into the TV media streaming party and nigh-on the only choice if you're a member of Amazon's Prime subscription service. It's a fiver more expensive than Google's Chromecast but comes bundled with a remote and is generally more powerful in terms of hardware. If you really have money to burn, then a better option is Roku's Streaming Stick which features a remote and more content. But this is still an excellent product from the Amazon stable and, at £35, represents excellent value for money providing you're happy to stum... Full review

Bargain-price streamer that excels if you're an Amazon Prime subscriber

from Expert Reviews

The Amazon Fire TV Stick is great value at £35. It doesn’t quite emulate all of the functionality of a Chromecast, but it’s very close due to its support of the DIAL protocol. Even if you’re not an Amazon Prime Instant Video subscriber the low cost still makes it an enticing prospect for streaming local content such through apps like Plex. The interface is mostly quick and responsive, save for the occasional slow app load, and the physical remote control adds an extra degree of convenience over Chromecast. You still have the option of using a smartphone or tablet as... Full review

A mandatory purchase for Prime subscribers

from Recombu
The Fire TV Stick can perhaps be best described as an inexpensive key to Amazon’s content kingdom. If you’ve invested heavily into Amazon’s world - you’re a Prime customer, you’ve got a big Amazon MP3 library - then this is an essential, nay, mandatory purchase. For £35, you get access to so much all in one place... Full review

A great media streamer if you're a Prime Video subscriber

from Tech Advisor
Thanks to its powerful internals and nice interface, the Fire TV Stick is a great gadget for watching Prime Instant Video, Netflix, iPlayer and Demand 5. The remote may lack a mic, but you can still use voice search in Prime Instant Video using the iOS, Amazon or Android app. We still prefer the Roku for its sheer breadth of content, but if you're a Prime member, this is one of the best ways to watch the Instant Video service...
