Amazon Fire Stick takes a massive price drop


Amazon Fire Stick

Amazon is currently offering its Fire Stick for just £25 in the UK.

It may have launched in this country less than a month ago, but it seems Amazon is already looking to give Amazon Fire Stick sales a boost after an early sales surge by dropping the price to £25.

This special offer represents a saving of £10 from its usual price. It's currently listed as a "Special Offer," so don't expect it to last forever.

It's been noted that yesterday, when the offer first became apparent, was National Streaming Day. No, really. If so, that might explain why Amazon has chosen now to drop the price of its media streaming stick, though there's no mention of it on the Amazon Fire Stick page.

The Amazon Fire Stick is essentially a slimmed down version of the Amazon Fire TV box. It plugs directly into your TV’s HDMI port and connects to your Wi-Fi network, allowing you to stream a host of Amazon-powered content, as well as third-party apps like YouTube, Netflix, and Spotify.

It's powered by a a dual-core CPU with 1GB of RAM, and it has 8GB of built-in storage. Compared to the Google Chromecast it's a far more fleshed out package, with a packaged in remote and a proper TV interface.

Amazon's compact solution is also about six times more powerful than the Roku Streaming Stick, which could come into play with media-rich apps.

Haha well pointed out.

I have repeatedly on here said in my comments they do not proof read their articles and here is another pathetic example.

This site has to be the most unprofessional site I have ever seen. It should be named Retarded Reviews.

There is no excuse for ongoing lack of bad and broken English, poor grammar, incoherent sentence structure and modulation and well the basic of basics proof reading. It is so regular this site should sell fuel instead!

"ongoing lack of bad and broken English"
Eh? A lack of bad English? But I agree with you about the proofreading!

I was meaning many other reviews they post, some of the spelling and sentence structure has been appalling but I guess I just got carried way with my little rant hehe.
