Today is day two of Prime Day and if you're anything like us you're probably wondering what deals am I missing?

Well, Amazon has revealed that its Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote was the most popular item purchased on day one of Prime Day in the UK. It's the second year in a row Amazon's streaming stick has taken the number one spot over the sale event.

Why's that, you ask? For starters Fire TV streaming stick from Amazon will turbo-charge your TV viewing, giving you access to tons of streaming services without having to purchase a brand new smart TV.

Offering a class-leading selection of streaming services, the latest edition is the most powerful streaming media stick with a new Wi-Fi antenna design.

Plus, it's currently a great deal, now better than half price. Reduced by 55% the popular smart buy is now only £17.99, reduced from £39.99.

This version of the Fire TV stick has Alexa voice control built-in, which means you won’t have to fiddle with an onscreen search every time you feel the need for some Gerard Butler action, and it streams in Full HD clarity.

Installation and setup are easy, so technophobes have nothing to fear. The Fire TV stick simply plugs into a spare HDMI input on your TV and connects to home Wi-Fi. You can use it in your main living room set, or in a second TV in an office or bedroom.

Why we love it

It’s built for bingeing — all the big streaming services are onboard, including Netflix, Prime Video, Disney+ and YouTube, plus mainstream catch-up TV players (BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All4, My5).

There’s even music providers, like Spotify and Tidal, plus simple arcade games for when you’re in the mood.

The likes of Netflix and Disney+ require a subscription, but available apps like Pluto TV have plenty of free stuff to watch too. If you’ve only ever streamed from these services on a smartphone or tablet, here’s the perfect opportunity to upgrade your viewing.

One final feature many overlook is Bluetooth support. You can pair your Bluetooth wireless headphones to the Fire TV stick for private listening, which is great if you want to catch a film late at night without disturbing the rest of the house.

If you’re a telly addict, we rate this Fire TV deal too hot to miss.

With over 53,000 reviews, 84% of Amazon buyers give the Fire TV stick a five star rating, so there’s clearly a lot of happy viewers out there.
