I got a Fire Stick a few years ago and honestly it’s the best thing! I’m probably stating the obvious about this, but for the people who haven’t got one or maybe haven’t heard of them, then this post is for you!
Gone are the days when we come home from work and turn on the TV just in time for that soap drama you watch every day of the week. Nope, we come home and turn on our Fire Stick.. because, well it has everything you could ever want to watch right there in one place.
Everything is on there, it has so many features; that many I don’t even know them all. I mainly use mine for Netflix (I don’t have a smart TV) so the fire stick is perfect for me. I’ve also downloaded a few catch up sites (ITV Hub, BBC iplayer, All 4). The only programs I watch on TV are the ones that can be found on catch up websites, so my Fire Stick comes in extremely handy whenever I miss an episode.
I’ve had mine for quite a while now and I’m pretty sure it’s one of the older ones. BUT it still works perfectly and does everything I want, so buying a newer version just now seems a little pointless. I did a bit of research and found that the new versions now have an Alexa voice remote (mine doesn’t have this feature). So obviously they’ve changed quite a bit.
Once I started using it and realised how good it was and how much easier it was having everything I wanted in one place, I recommended them to friends and family and I’m pretty sure nearly everyone I know now has one. And they will all say the same.. We all need one of these in our lives.
Another amazing thing about the Fire Stick is they are so inexpensive for how good they are. If for any reason mine was to break I would not hesitate to purchase another straight away. They start from as cheap as £30, and for everything that this thing does is so cheap! Also they now sell all the items individually so if for example your remote was to stop working, you wouldn’t have to re purchase the whole thing, just buy a new remote and away you go.
I usually get a bit nervous about technology (I’ll admit I’m definitely not the best at setting things up or even using them once I have). I tend to stick to the simpler things in life. But the Fire Sticks are so easy to set up; 1: Plug Fire TV Stick into your HDTV, 2: plug into wall socket, 3: Connect to internet and away you go!
This is kind of a random post but my blog is all about the things I love and I was looking around my room for some inspiration and glanced at my TV.. what is the one thing I use daily and could not live with out, My Fire Stick!
