No, today is not Black Friday – that's next Friday – but that hasn't stopped many retailers launching their sales. Like Amazon, who has dropped the price of its Fire TV streaming devices, some of them to their lowest ever.
The standard Fire TV Stick is reduced to $27 ($12 off), the Fire TV Stick Lite is $17 (also $12 off), while the 4K model is $29 ($20 off). The Fire TV Cube is now $79 – equalling its all-time lowest price, which we saw back on Amazon Prime Day last month – and the Fire TV Recast is now $119 ($110 off, also equalling its lowest ever price). Bargains.

Amazon Fire TV Stick (2020)
$39 $27 at Amazon
The latest version of Amazon's streaming stick packs Dolby Atmos for more immersive sound with compatible content and speakers, and HDR, for much greater contrast ratios. It only launched a couple of months ago, and it's already discounted. Amazon doesn't play games.
Amazon Fire TV Stick Lite
$29 $17 at Amazon
This is the cheapest Fire TV Stick Amazon makes, and now it's even more affordable than usual. Despite its low price, it still has an Alexa remote, and HDR for stunning visuals. Essential.
Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K
$49 $29 at Amazon
If you want something a bit higher-specced, Amazon also makes a 4K version of the Fire TV Stick. And – you guessed it – it's also discounted. It's also Amazon's most powerful streaming stick, and an absolute steal with $20 off.
Amazon Fire TV Cube
$119 $79 at Amazon
All-time lowest price alert! Amazon's five-star streaming cube is now available for less than 80 bucks – a $40 discount, taking it to the lowest price we've ever seen. It was previously available at this price on Amazon Prime Day last month, but don't expect to see it this cheap again anytime soon.
Amazon Fire TV Recast
$229 $119 at Amazon
Amazon's DVR is also discounted, in both 500GB and 1TB iterations. It lets you record live over-the-air TV, and then watch it back on a compatible device like a mobile, tablet, or another Fire TV device.
Amazon's streaming devices are renowned as some of the best in the business, thanks in large part to their low prices. But they're also very capable. And while they're heavily skewed to Amazon's ecosystem, they can stream other services too, like Netflix, YouTube, Disney+ and Apple TV+.
The standard Fire TV Stick was refreshed a couple of months ago. It boasts an enhanced 1.7 GHz quad-core processor with 50 per cent more power than the previous generation Fire TV Stick. The new model delivers faster streaming in 1080p at 60fps, while the dual-band, dual-antenna WiFi supports 5GHz networks and promises more stable streaming and fewer dropped connections.
The Fire TV Stick Lite debuted at the same time. HDR comes as standard, as does a special Alexa Voice Remote Lite, which lets you speak to find, launch, and control content.
The 4K model supports UHD picture quality, as does the Fire TV Cube. This latter device is larger and more powerful, and can control compatible soundbars and AV receivers, too.
Lastly, the Fire TV Recast is a DVR for cord cutters. It lets you record live TV, then watch it back on a connected device, be it a tablet, mobile, another Fire TV device or even a screen-equipped smart speaker. How's that for convenience?
