With the latest Amazon Fire Stick prices, you'll find turning your TV into a fully equipped smart TV is much cheaper than you would think. Hundreds of shows and apps will be at your fingertips, and our roundup of the cheapest Amazon Fire Stick sales and deals is here to point you in the right direction.

All the cheapest entry-level Amazon Fire TV Stick prices are on display today, but we're also highlighting the upgraded Fire TV Stick 4K version, which features more headroom for better sound and display and will still work on a non-4K TV in case you think you'll upgrade in the future.

Amazon has been busy creating even more devices, such as the budget Fire TV Stick Lite and the powerful Fire TV Cube, which acts as a combination of an Echo speaker and Fire TV device. We'll tell you more about that later. Or, there's the US-exclusive Fire TV Recast which allows you to record free over-the-air content - one for all you cord-cutters out there.

The main advantage we've seen with the Amazon Fire TV devices over competitors like Roku and Now TV is the now-standard inclusion of Amazon's Alexa smart assistant, thanks to the voice-remote that comes with every Fire TV device. A large number of available apps and games just can't be matched by competitors either. So if you want the smartest of smart TV experiences for less, these Amazon Fire Stick prices are the way to go.

The Fire TV Stick Lite is the newest addition to the Amazon Fire TV family, and it's the cheapest device that Amazon has put out yet. The budget streaming stick allows you to stream your favorite content from apps like Hulu, Amazon Video, Netflix, and more. You'll get access to tens of thousands of channels, Alexa skills, and apps, and the Alexa voice remote allows you to browse shows, launch movies, adjust the volume, and more completely hands-free.

If you want the most advanced and future-proof streaming device Amazon make without spending a lot of money, the new 4K Fire TV Stick is the one for you. The new streaming media stick packs a wealth of features into a thumb-drive sized stick. For not much more than the older HD-only Fire TV Stick, you get 4K capability, HDR, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, a 1.7GHz quad-core processor, and Dolby Atmos Audio—something very few streaming sticks have. Plus, you also get Alexa, Amazon's smart assistant, and its voice control capabilities. 

This version is much better than the old hanging dongle Amazon used to make for 4K streaming, and it's even cheaper. Amazon Fire Stick prices for this 4K model have flitted around the $35/£35 previously this year, so if you see a price that low, grab it while you can.

Looking for a smart tv experience without another black box on your shelf? Check out the Amazon Fire TV Stick. It offers all of the same content that you'd find on the older full-sized boxes, but in a mini, USB stick-esque form factor. You'll love how quick and snappy the Fire TV Stick's interface is, and that it’s intuitively laid out, making most content quick and easy to find. The new voice search functionality is quick and accurate when searching for Amazon or Netflix content, and it’s also a speedy way of hopping between apps. Most major streaming services are supported.

This earlier model only supports HD streaming, so if you're looking for something to suit a 4K enabled television, you'll want to take a look at the version further up this page. These Amazon Fire Stick prices are often stepping on each other's toes so even if you don't need 4K, you may still find the later model cheaper. That said, there are often far more significant discounts on this standard model when the sales do come around.

Like an Echo Dot and Fire TV Stick in one

Picture quality: Up to 4K Ultra HD with HDR10+ and Dolby Vision | Voice remote: Yes | Alexa-enabled: Yes | Storage: 16GB | Ethernet port: Yes | Launch price: $119.99/£109/AU$160

Hands free streaming
Supports 4K content
HDR10+ support and Dolby Vision

Amazon's Fire TV Cube is a hybrid between a smart speaker and a streaming media player. Calling itself the “first hands-free streaming media player with Alexa”. Amazon seems to be betting on this combined functionality to sway consumers away from rival Chromecast or Apple TV devices.  

Like the Amazon Echo speakers, customers are able to navigate Fire TV and play/pause/fast-forward content without the need for a remote, while still using Alexa for all their weather/shopping/trivia concerns. Don't worry, you get an actual remote control too. 

The Cube comes with its own Ethernet port, 16GB of storage and a built-in speaker as well as top of the range picture quality, as long as your TV can display it. Users are also able to control other compatible smart home devices, including additional speakers, soundbars, thermostats, and security cameras. Compared to Amazon Fire Stick prices, the TV Cube is an expensive piece of kit. You are getting complete control of your Amazon smart home in one neat little black box, however - making it the easiest way of combining all your connected tech.

Watch and record live TV with Alexa

Picture quality: Up to HD | Tuners: 2/4 | Voice remote: Yes | Alexa-enabled: Yes | Storage: 500GB/1TB (up to 75/150 hours of HD TV content | Ethernet port: Yes | Launch price: $229.99/$279.99

Amazon's own DVR
75/150-hour capacity
Compatible with Alexa-enabled products

Only available in the US. Amazon has released its own DVR (Digital Video Recorder) to record free over-the-air content and watch it via an Amazon Fire TV device or Echo Show (so you'll need one of those too). There are no subscription fees here, so it's a tempting option for all you cord cutters out there and with a 500GB capacity on the cheapest model, you're looking at around 75 hours of storage, so there's no need to pick up an external drive to save content, which is an issue with some DVRs. 

There's a larger 1TB capacity version if you want to double down. Hook it up to a HD antenna and you'll be able to watch and record content from the likes of ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, PBS, and The CW. Better yet, just ask Alexa to do it for you if you've got a modern Fire TV device with a voice-remote.

Which Fire Stick prices are right for you?

The Fire Stick and the Fire Stick 4K prices are fairly similar to begin with ($39.99/£39.99 and $49.99/£49.99 respectively. So, when the sales do come around, you may well find that the more popular 4K model is cheaper than the original HD-only version. Even if you don't own a 4K TV, there's little point in picking up the older version when this happens (and it seems to regularly). In fact, even if the original Fire Stick prices are cheaper than the 4K offering, if there's a sale on both regardless you might as well pick up the latest model and future-proof your purchase.
