Now’s your last chance to buy an Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K on the cheap

The clock is ticking — you have less than 12 hours to snap up an Amazon Fire TV Stick, Fire TV Stick 4K, or Fire TV Recast on the cheap, as Prime Day draws to a close and takes the discounts on the cord-cutting devices with it when it goes.

To recap, Amazon has knocked $25 off the standard Amazon Fire TV Stick, dropping the price to just $15; $25 off the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K, sending the price tumbling to an all-too-tempting $25; and $100 off the Fire TV Recast, plunging the price to $180.

But what do each of them do? Let’s take a look.

The Fire TV Stick is the most basic bit of kit in Amazon’s cord-cutting arsenal, offer one-click access to a slew of leading streaming services, including Amazon Prime Video and Netflix — but it’s streaming itself is capped at a Full HD resolution.

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K — $25

Whereas, the Fire TV Stick 4K takes it a step further, delivering near enough the same functionality; though it can stream content in stunning 4K Ultra HD. Both the 4K model and the regular Fire TV Stick have Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant on board.

Designed to be used alongside a Fire TV Stick 4K and an HD antenna, the Fire TV Recast is a top-rated DVR, bundling support for over-the-air streaming, which lets you access your recorded content from anywhere on Earth using a smartphone or tablet.

Pair the Fire TV Recast with a Fire TV Stick 4K as part of the Prime Day sale, and you’ll be saving a cool $125. That’s almost on par with how much a year’s worth of Netflix will run you, so you’re essentially getting it thrown in for free (in terms of raw savings).

Why you should buy the TCL 85-Inch Class S4 Smart TV
Even on sale, $1,000 isn't a quick investment. But there's a lot to assure us that you'll like this TV enough to make it worth it. For starters, it is a modern 4K TV from one of the best TV brands around (TCL is favored for their high-value Google TVs, of which this is one). That means that it is a smart TV with full voice control through your choice of the Alexa or the Google Assistant, making switching between multiple games (and even a quick glance at the news) easy as can be. We also cannot ignore features like Motion Rate 240, MEMC Frame Insertion, and HDR PRO, which combine to give hyper-smooth visuals with fine-tuned details even in fast-paced game moments.
