Like all the other big retailers this Black Friday, Amazon has a few of its own deals that help it stand out from the gadget and TV crowd. This is doubly true for all of its own products. But aside from its tablets and smart devices, Amazon’s Fire Stick Black Friday deals are some of the best discounts you can find. With support for 4K, HDR and Alexa, these streaming devices have a great feature set and are now at an even better price.
Tip: We’ll update this breakdown of deals as Black Friday sales continue, so be sure to check back often. Stock is running out for some of the more popular items, so don’t expect a better price forever. It may not happen.
Amazon’s Fire Sticks are some of the best streaming devices you can buy, turning even the dumbest of old TVs (as long as you have an HDMI connection) into a smart one. It gives you access to all the best streaming services with an intuitive and robust remote control and Alexa support, giving you access to all the best contemporary movies and TV shows, as well as many catalogs of your favorites.
This Black Friday, Amazon slashed the price of not only its entry-level Fire Sticks, but also its much more capable Fire TV Cube models, as well as a bunch of bundles. So if you not only want to upgrade your streaming setup but also want to make your home a little smarter, there are some fantastic discounts to be had this Black Friday.
The best Amazon Fire Stick Black Friday deals
What streaming services can you watch on an Amazon Fire Stick
Amazon Fire TV Stick supports over 70 different streaming apps and services including Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, Crackle, Crunchyroll, Kodi, BBC iPlayer, Dinsey +, HBO Now, Crackle, Sling TV, Spotify, Pandora and more.
This gives you access to tens of thousands of TV shows, movies, and albums, making it one of the best streaming devices you can buy. And at a heavily discounted price with free extras, it’s even better.
Do you need a smart TV for an Amazon Fire Stick?
Absolutely not! The Amazon Fire TV Stick turns any TV into a smart TV, whether or not it has its own smart features. In fact, it can be a good way to bypass annoying advertisements built into some Samsung TVs and speed up TVs with slower internal processors. Take your TV offline and let the Fire TV Stick do all of the streaming work.
Which Amazon Fire Stick Should You Buy?
There are three models of the Amazon Fire Stick to consider. Amazon Standard and Traditional Fire Stick and Fire Stick Lite both support HD resolution up to 1080p at 60 FPS and both are HDR compatible, supporting HDR10, HLG and HDR10 + standards.
The Fire Stick also supports Dolby Atmos, for TVs that also support it, and includes Alexa Voice Remote with volume control, which Fire TV Lite doesn’t. This template simply lets you search for content using Alexa voice support.
The Fire TV Stick 4K has everything the Standard TV Stick has, but adds support for 4K Ultra HD resolution.
The Fire TV Cube is the best performing of all the models – although it’s more of a cube than a stick, as the name suggests. It increases the local storage capacity from 8 GB to 16 GB, expands the integrated processor from four cores to six cores and adds an Ethernet port for wired connections.
If you’re just looking for HD content, the standard Fire Stick is a great buy, with the Lite model being better for those who aren’t interested in extended Alexa support. However, if you want the latest 4K content, consider the Fire TV Stick 4K or the Fire TV Cube. They are much more capable.
