Amazon Fire TV Stick
This is a great option if you want all of the features and streaming media available to the Amazon Fire TV box, but don’t need 4K support. This is a small stick that installs directly into an HDMI port on your HDTV without requiring space for a box or additional hardware. Despite the small size, you still get access to more than 3,000 channels, apps, and games just like the Amazon Fire TV box. There are two different versions available, one with a standard remote, and one that includes a remote with voice controls so it’s up to your individual preferences which works best for your entertainment center. While this stick does work with apps and games, it’s not the best option for gaming on your HDTV, since it lacks the memory and processing power of larger options featured on this list. With that in mind, this media player is perfect for streaming basic media and accessing simple apps.
