Overall best deal
Why we like it
The octa-core-powered Fire TV Cube is twice as fast as the Fire TV Stick 4K Max, as per Amazon. To put things into perspective, the 4K Max is 40% more powerful than the 4K model. With seamless streaming, support for Ultra HD picture quality and Dolby Atmos, and privacy protection controls, you will be hard-pressed to find many models more complete than the Fire TV Cube.
The Cube offers support for WiFi 6E, so if you already have a capable router, your gaming experience will be out of this world thanks to the extra boost to speed and lower latency. Additionally, the IR blaster can control your other entertainment devices, such as the soundbar and home theatre system. At the same time, Alexa allows you to power up and begin streaming immediately in case you’ve missed the beginning of your sports game.
Best Value for money deal
Why we like it
The Fire TV Stick 4K Max is priced at only $5 more than the 4K version, but the upgrade is worth every penny. Unlike its predecessor, the 4K Max arrives with WiFi 6E support, and a faster performance thanks to the upgraded 2GB RAM. Moreover, the ‘Live View Picture-in-Picture’ feature lets you view security camera footage while streaming your entertainment options. The 750MHz GPU enables better gameplay performance, while the Alexa voice remote can help you connect to any subscribed apps at a moment’s notice.

Why we like it
Maybe the Christmas holidays ate up your spending budget, but if you can spare just $24.99 today, the Fire TV Stick Lite can be yours. PC Mag’s Will Greenwald gave the product an excellent rating thanks to the great range of streaming options, the remote with Alexa voice capability, and the HDR (High Dynamic Range) support to enhance your viewing experience. The remote lacks TV controls, but your existing remote should take care of it. With an HDMI extender, USB cable, adapter, and a pair of AAA batteries, you can begin your streaming journey right away.
