Everyone loves streaming. That's just an undeniable fact, especially when great TV shows like The Last of Us are airing. And while a smart set can take you a long way, sometimes you have a perfectly good TV without a smart interface. In those cases, a streaming stick can help — like the Fire TV Stick, which you can pick up for just $9 right now. That's a whopping 78% off! The sale is only for today, so act very fast.
Why do we love the Fire TV Stick? Let us count the ways. First, it doesn't require an external power source — your TV's HDMI port can handle that just fine, and it remains tucked out of sight behind your TV. Don't worry, though; the remote still works, even if you don't see the Stick itself.
Secondly, this remote has Alexa built-in. That opens up a world of possibilities when it comes to browsing your TV. You can just press and hold the button to say, "Alexa, play the news," and your preferred provider will pop up. Want sports? "Alexa, show me football." Feeling a little noir-ish? "Alexa, show me Humphrey Bogart movies." Whatever you're in the mood for, Alexa can help you find.
It can also be used to control your smart home. When it's time to kick back and watch TV, you can ask the smart assistant to turn down the lights and lock your door, hopefully deterring any would-be visitors. The remote is durable and energy-efficient — two AAA batteries will last you a good long time.
This device is seriously just plug-and-play. It takes no time at all to get set up and gives you access to all of your favorite streaming platforms. If you aren't tech savvy, you can breathe easy — you don't have to be to use this. In fact, it's my go-to option for streaming, and I think it wins out over Roku and Apple TV every time.
This deal is only for today, though, so act fast. Stock is limited, and this will be over before you know it.
