If you have an older 4K TV, there’s an easy and affordable way to make it smarter, instantly! Today the Fire TV Stick 4K is just $40.

Here’s how it works: Simply insert the stick into one of your 4K TV’s HDMI ports. That’s it: The streaming device will search for your home’s WiFi network automatically and wait for you to log in.

Once synced, you’ll have access to hundreds of streaming apps, including Netflix, YouTube, Prime Video, HBO, Starz, Showtime and more. You’ll find fun interactive settings like pop-up results for actor and director names via IMDb.

You can use Alexa for voice search, hands-free navigation and instant access to news, weather and sports scores, too.

”Ok guys, real talk, I'm not 17 anymore,” wrote a very enthusiastic video streaming fan. “What I care about now is function, design and efficiency. So the fact that this new edition of the Fire Stick can control the volume and the power to my TV...umm, put me down for 200 please. We all have had half a dozen Fire Sticks by now, and we can all agree—they're great. But at the end of the day, I still needed to fondle three remotes in the dark, steal half-alive batteries from three of my kids’ toys, and ask my two year old where he put the remotes, for all three devices...just so I can lock myself in my room for nine totally unselfish hours just to watch the latest season of Stranger Things. Additionally, I think the Fire Stick knows how much of a bada$$ it is. I've caught the remote levitating on my nightstand a handful of times. I think it's self aware. Of course this does the usual blah blah blah, and yes it's 4k if you have it connected to a compatible TV. But all that is so #yesterday. What I'm really trying to say here guys is: I ONLY NEED ONE REMOTE NOW!!!”
