The current flagship Fire TV Stick has had 50% off lopped of its £49.99 price-tag this Prime Day and it’s the one to go for if you have a UHD 4K or 4K HDR television.

The Fire TV Stick 4K is one of the best value ways to stream UHD, HDR content without spending a fortune

Other benefits this has over the cheaper alternative is a slightly faster processor (quad-core 1.7Ghz) and better audio in the form of Dolby Atmos. You will, of course, need some sort of Atmos-enabled speaker to allow this feature to work.

You’ll get an Alexa remote control in the package too, which lets you search for content with just your voice.
