Google’s Chromecast was quite the little piece of magic for those who loved to stream movies, TV, and music as well as plenty of other things all by using their phone as a conduit of sorts. It wasn’t long though before Amazon put out their own offering with the Fire TV Stick, a similarly sized HDMI stick that plugs into the back of your TV with access to Prime Movies and TV and allowed for access to other apps like Hulu, Netflix and more for streaming content. The Fire TV Stick even comes with a remote for easier control.
While the Fire TV Stick was by no means expensive at the normal $50 cost which was still a great deal for what you get, getting any kind of savings on it is nothing to shake a stick at. Right now you can pick up the Fire TV Stick for just $39.99 on sale over at Amazon, down from the normal $49.99 cost. For that $10 savings you’re getting a small and compact, as well as portable streaming TV option that has access to the most popular streaming apps including HBO Now and Showtime, and you can control everything from the remote by speaking to it as it’s powered by the same Alexa technology within the Amazon Echo speaker. It’s also got 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage.
