Got an older TV? You can upgrade it to a smart TV— instantly—with the Amazon Fire TV Stick. And right now, it’s on sale for just $35 (was $40). The genius gizmo is back in stock on June 9, but you can still pre-order it to get the sale price.
The Amazon Fire TV Stick couldn’t be easier to use. Simply plug it into one of your TV’s HDMI ports. That’s it: The streaming device will search for your home’s Wi-Fi network automatically and wait for you to log in.
Once everything is synced up, you’ll have access to hundreds of streaming apps and channels, including Netflix, YouTube, Disney+, Prime Video, HBO Now, Starz, Showtime and more. You’ll also find fun interactive settings like pop-up results for actor and director names via IMDb.
“I have two televisions. One is in the bedroom and has an older Fire TV stick. The other is the big screen TV in the living room and that is now hooked up with the new Fire TV stick. I’m a huge fan,” wrote a five-star Amazon reviewer. “I can view all my favorite apps, including my Amazon Prime Video. I rarely if ever use my cable anymore. The only time I do is for sporting events—and I could do that with an app on the Fire TV. I’m ready to ‘cut the cable.’ I do over 90 percent of my TV viewing using the Fire TV.”
For more convenience, you can use the remote with built-in Alexa to access news, weather and sports scores hands-free. It even supports Dolby Audio for crisp and crystal clear audio.
The retail giant is even including a free one-year subscription to Food Network Kitchen with the Amazon Fire TV Stick. This is great if you’re looking for new recipes and ways to spruce up meals at home. All in all, it’s a 53 percent bundle savings for both the streaming device and the year-long subscription.
