   TV Stick

What is the Fire Stick (TV Stick)? It’s just a fancy name for a video-streaming device. It lets you turn your ordinary television into a Smart TV through the HDMI port.

Because the Fire Stick plugs directly into the HDMI port, its compact size makes it the ideal device where space is limited, such as on wall-mounted TVs. It allows you to stream content to your TV via wireless Internet connection. The Fire Stick belongs to the Amazon Fire range. The Fire TV Stick packs all the features into a HDMI dongle. That means you can stream Full HD content from services like Amazon Prime Instant Video, Netflix, iPlayer and BBC!
