The new Amazon Fire TV Stick is the service’s second generation of its cheapest video streaming device. It aims itself squarely at rivals such as Google Chromecast Ultra and Roku Streaming Stick, squeezing all of its streaming know-how into a dongle-sized device.
You can stream full HD video from Amazon Prime, as well as Netflix and the full roster of the UK’s catch up services. There are plenty more apps besides, including Prime Music and Spotify, plus access to Amazon’s growing games library.
So, what’s new? For a start, the interface has had a complete overhaul to make it look a lot prettier and easier to use. This will filter down to older devices over time though, as will the Alexa voice control, so the real benefits of the new Stick are its faster processor and improved Wi-Fi.
