(Pocket-lint) - There's never been a better time to go out and buy a Fire TV Stick 4K to add streaming services and apps to your TV. That's because you can now get one for a bargain price thanks to a great discount from Amazon on Black Friday.

The Fire TV Stick 4K has an impressive 40 per cent discount, bringing the price down to $/£29.99 from its normal $/£49.99.

The Fire TV Stick 4K plugs into an HDMI port on your TV. You get access to Amazon Prime Video as well as apps a range of other subscription streaming services like Netflix and Disney+ as well as free services like YouTube and BBC iPlayer. It's one of the easiest ways to make a non-smart TV into a smart set. It supports 4K HDR content.

Step down and you have the Fire TV Stick. This was updated in 2020, still offering all the Alexa skills via that remote - and all the same streaming services, but it only supports 1080p content. If you're looking for something for a second TV, this could be exactly the stick for you. It's reduced from $/£39.99 to $27.99 in the US, or £24.99 in the UK.

Finally, there's an even more affordable option. The Fire TV Stick Lite comes in under the regular stick, still only offering 1080p streaming, but also reducing some of the controls on the remote - it won't control the volume on your TV, for example, but it is a little cheaper. 

The Fire TV Stick Lite has been reduced to just $17.99 in the US or £19.99 in the UK.

We expect these deals to run throug until the end of November covering the Black Friday sales period, which will see discounts on many more of Amazon's devices, as well as lots of other tech.
