Configuration: Standard Remote
UPDATE NOV 2016: A lot of folks are asking what you need to buy in order to watch The Grand Tour. The answer is that you need a subscription to Prime or Amazon Instant video. You then have a lot of options for watching the programme: on a computer (via the Amazon Video tab on this very website); on a tablet/phone/game console running the Amazon Video app; a smart TV; or a normal TV with this device plugged into it.

What is the Fire TV Stick?
========
The Stick is a tiny video streaming device. It connects to internet video services like Amazon Video or Netflix using your home WiFi, and sends the video your TV like any other video source (for example, it has replaced my need for a BluRay player). I'm now well into my second year of being a Fire TV Stick user and I still use it every day

What do you need to make it work?
==========================
Your TV must have an HDMI port. It doesn’t need to be a smart TV. You can even use a computer monitor if it has speakers and an HDMI port that supports HD Content Protection. Pretty much every TV made since 2003 will have this, but many monitors do not.

You need a decent WiFi signal in the location you intend to use the TV. It’s essential to have a decent internet connection (at least 3 Mbps for standard-definition, double that for HD), and preferably an unlimited data package (otherwise, video streaming will burn through your data allowance in no time). There is a short extension lead included in the box - it also seems to act as an WiFi antenna, giving a better connection in most cases.

Fees
====
You need a subscription to Amazon Video (£5.99/month) or Amazon Prime (£79/year) to stream movies and TV shows.

I bought this as an electronic babysitter, for my husband, who is five. Oh, wait, not five, 48. I was pig-sick of him watching Netflix on his mobile phone, with his netbook pinging up Facebook messages, with the TV on full blast, and the sound from his Netflix leaking out of his earphones, because he had that on full volume as well, to counter-balance whatever was happening on the TV he wasn't watching. It has worked a treat, as he now watches endless hours of crap on the big TV, while his netbook and phone ping Facebook messages at him, and he lies on the couch, re-arranging his crotch, and grunting.

The installation was easy, despite the fact that I only have full use of one hand, I didn't need any screwdrivers, and I'm not allowed hammers anyway. I did stand on an apple that the dog had taken behind the TV, for dog-reasons, and it squidged between my toes a bit, but I don't suppose that's a universal installation issue, not everyone having a dog that hides fruit behind the TV.

The plug-and-play nature of the device meant that I was able to install without asking for help from a man, and I didn't even break any fingernails. I'm relatively certain I've deleted any links to my social media from Amazon, so the husband won't be able to ferret about, at two in the morning, while he's watching something with boobs in, or yet another concert from the time period when I was being potty-trained, and see all of the nasty things I say about him.

For me, it has been £35 well-spent, although the glut of adverts offering it for £25 have been a bit of a kick in the crotch, I could have spent the extra £10 on gin, but it would have been cheap gin, so there would have been no real gain.

What is it?
========

The Amazon Fire TV Stick is a streaming media device to rival Google’s Chromecast and the Roku Streaming Stick. In it’s basic form, it allows you to stream Full HD content from the likes of Amazon Prime Instant Video, BBC iPlayer, ITV Player and Netflix. You can also play music from online services like spotify or YouTube. If you’re already got something like a Chromecast and you’re thinking you don’t need one of these, don’t be put off just yet, keep reading as you can do a lot more with this if you’re fairly technically competent.

What can it do?
============

A lot of people will be looking at the Amazon Fire Stick comparing it to devices like the Chromecast and may be swayed towards the Chromecast because it is marginally cheaper. I have both however and there are clear advantages to the Fire Stick.

So, as mentioned before, you can stream Full HD content from the likes of Amazon Prime Instant Video, BBC iPlayer, ITV Player and Netflix. You can also play music from online services like spotify or YouTube. There are essentially apps that you can install for Free which will connect to these services and stream content predominantly from the internet.

The good thing with the Fire Stick is that unlike the Chromecast, the Fire Stick connects directly to these services and can be controlled by the remote (included with the Fire Stick). Where as with devices like the Chromecast, you generally need a phone or computer to connect to the service initially, then by selecting the option to cast, this sends instructions to the Chromecast to then connect to the internet service directly. I personally find the Fire Stick is just a million times more straight forward thanks to the remote.
