Soon any TV with an HDMI port can transform into a “smart” TV with internet streaming capabilities.
The Fire TV Stick from Amazon connects to Netflix, Hulu, ESPN, Pandora – and of course Amazon’s own vast video library. With a Prime Instant Video subscription, the TV Stick offers unlimited access to more than 40,000 movies.
The device comes with a dedicated remote, but – even better – there’s an app for Android and iOS that gives you control over the videos you’re watching, including voice search. On top of that, the Amazon Fire Stick connects your TV to games too.
