Here’s how you can score an Amazon Fire TV Stick at just half price
No smart TV? No problem. You can get access to all your favourite streaming services by using a small and simple device like the Amazon Fire TV Stick Lite. This plug-and-play dongle fits into the HDMI port of your old TV, adding several top streaming apps – like Netflix and Prime Video – to it and making it a much smarter screen.
The great thing about the Fire TV Stick Lite is that it comes with an Alexa-powered remote control. This gives you the ability to use simple voice commands to start streaming in a giffy. All you have to do is press the button with the speaker icon on the remote and say something like “Alexa, open Netflix '' and, viola, the app will open. You can even search for specific content on the various streaming apps by saying something like “Alexa, find Australian movies' or “Alexa, play Stranger Things on Netflix”. That makes navigating the myriad apps quite seamless. It puts over 20,000+ movies and shows Prime Video right at your fingertips, plus the vast libraries of Stan, Disney+, Apple TV+, YouTube and even catch-up free-to-air apps like ABC iview and SBS On Demand.
This little device usually costs $59 on Amazon Australia, but if you haven’t already tried the online retailer’s Prime subscription service, then signing up for it will score you the Fire TV Stick Lite at 50%. That’s just $29.50.
