Amazon’s ramping up towards Amazon Prime Day with some Prime exclusive deals of the day bargains. Today’s deal lets you add some serious smarts to your TV and to your home.
Strawberries and cream, peanut butter and jelly, Batman and Robin. Just a few examples of matches made in heaven. The Fire TV Stick and Echo Dot is another perfect pairing, and one that’s even better when you can save £25.
The Fire TV Stick is a great way of adding smart features to your TV, adding in all the streaming services you could ever want. Whether you want to watch a film or TV show on Netflix or catch up on your soaps on BBC iPlayer, the Fire TV Stick has all the content you could want. The elegant little stick simply plugs into a HDMI port on your TV and is hidden away, keeping your entertainment centre looking neat and tidy. We gave it a 9/10 review and considered it ‘well-priced’ when it was £39.99.
The newest model also includes an Alexa-powered voice remote so you can simply request your favourite shows on Netflix or Amazon Prime Video. But this bundle goes one step further, by including an Echo Dot. This works seamlessly with the Fire TV Stick so you can control your TV without even having to grab a remote control. Simply summon Alexa and never dig around the couch for a remote control ever again. The seven far-field microphones can pick up your voice from across the room.
The Echo Dot can be the central hub for you entire smart home, beyond just your Fire TV Stick. Imagine controlling Philips Hue light bulbs or your smart thermostat, and you’re only scratching the tip of the iceberg for its potential.
We also gave the Echo Dot 9/10 when it was reviewed at £50, stating “The Amazon Echo Echo Dot is simply a better device than the standard Amazon Echo. It does everything its big brother does, but offers greater versatility and it costs half of the price. If you’re after a voice assistant to take control of your home, or even if you’re just curious to take a peek at the future of home automation, this is a no-brainer.”
Now that you can bag one with a Fire TV Stick for the same price, call that a double no-brainer.
So if you’re looking to make the leap into the smart home, this pairing is a fantastic way to start made all the better with a £25 saving over buying them alone. This deal is exclusively for Prime members, but fret not, you can always take out a 30-day free trial to take advantage. That’ll see you through Prime Day on July 16th to 17th, too. Handy.
