Want to test something other than Android TV or Apple TV? Amazon offers its own solution with its Fire TV Stick Lite, classic, 4K and 4K Max, which feature a different operating system. Now is the perfect time to crack, since they are all at reduced prices right now.
Fire TV Sticks are small HDMI sticks that compete with Google’s Chromecast or Xiaomi’s Mi TV Stick. No Android TV at Jeff Bezos, but a home solution with substantially the same experience, however centered around Amazon services, such as Prime Video or Music Unlimited. There are four different models and they are all being destocked on the American giant’s site.
What is a Fire TV Stick?
- An HDMI key under Fire OS centered on Amazon services
- In Full HD or 4K at 60 fps, your choice
- And an Alexa-enabled remote
Instead of the usual 39.99 euros, the classic Fire TV Stick is now available for just 24.99 euros on Amazon. There is also a promotion for the Lite model for 5 euros less, the 4K model for 10 euros more and the 4K Max model for 15 euros more.

Which Fire TV Stick Should You Choose?
If you want to enjoy 4K on your compatible TV, you have to go for the Fire TV Stick 4K or 4K Max, which also support HDR10 and Dolby Vision. However, if you don’t need to go that far, the classic Fire TV Stick (or Lite) model is more than enough. With it, you will enjoy a Full HD image at 60 frames per second. In addition, compatibility with Dolby Atmos technology is included for better sound immersion.
If you choose the Lite version to save some money, note that the remote will not support controlling your TV and/or soundbar, as the volume and ON/OFF buttons are simply not present . In any case, compatibility with Alexa is ensured for all models in order to launch a TV program by voice, or even music. Through this, you can also control your compatible connected objects.
Fire OS at the center of the experience
The user experience under Fire OS is obviously centered on Amazon services, with many movie suggestions for Prime Video in the menu, where the latter are also a little reminiscent of what is being done on the Apple side. Even Amazon’s streaming app for movies and series has been given a makeover to go along those lines. Anyway, third-party services are not set aside and you can also download them all from the Amazon App Store, via Netflix, Molotov, MyCanal, YouTube and many others.
