I found the three best Black Friday deals from Amazon Fire, Sky and Virgin
But if you’re all set for a TV and are in need of a new streaming device, then Amazon offers several different models of its popular Fire TV Stick. What’s more, Amazon has dropped a new Black Friday deal on the Fire TV Stick Lite that makes it the brand’s “most affordable” HD streaming stick.
The cool piece of kit is now 37 percent off at £21.99 and lets users stream the best and most-talked-about entertainment, with tons of films, shows, live news and sport with a host of apps and fast streaming in Full HD. The compact device is easy to set up, simply plug in to the TVs HDMI port, turn on the TV and connect to the internet to get set up.
The Stick supports up to 1080p Full HD picture quality, with users able to watch live TV, news and sport with subscriptions to Eurosport, ITVX, Sky News and more. It also includes free films and shows with apps like Freevee, Youtube, ITVX and Channel 4.
There are also thousands of blockbuster films and shows available from top streaming platforms like Netflix, Prime Video, Disney+, Apple TV+, all of which are accessible via the Fire TV Stick. Plus, bargain hunters can get Netflix and Apple TV+ for free with Sky’s Black Friday deal that also includes premium Sky TV channels and Sky Stream for £19 a month.
The compact Fire TV Stick Lite even has Alexa built-in, meaning users can use their voice to easily search and launch programmes across a host of apps. But it’s not just the TV that Alexa can control – with compatible smart home devices, Alexa can check the weather, dim the lights, view supported live camera feeds and stream music or podcasts.
Shoppers should note that the remote control doesn’t have TV volume or power capability, but Amazon does offer an alternative – the Fire TV Stick – that currently costs an extra £3 compared to the Lite model and has both power and volume control.
Amazon also offers a premium Fire Stick model with 4K compatibility that is 42 percent off in the Black Friday sale. The all-new Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K lets users watch the best entertainment in vibrant 4K Ultra HD, with added support for Dolby Vision, HDR10+ and immersive Dolby Atmos audio for an extra £13 compared to the Lite model.
This nifty bit of tech boasts improved streaming performance with Wi-Fi 6 support so users can enjoy smooth 4K streaming, even when other devices are connected to the router. Roku also offers an alternative to the Fire TV Stick with the HD Streaming Media Player, which is now 37 percent off at £18.99 and includes tons of streaming and entertainment apps with up to 720p picture quality.
