Streaming has changed home entertainment for the better. With a subscription, you can easily access tons of quality movies and TV shows. You can make enjoying your streaming services even easier by integrating them right into your TV. With Amazon Fire products, you can plug a Fire Stick in and instantly get access to all your favorite platforms, or you can get a Fire TV and have them built right in. For this round-up, we’ve selected the best Fire Sticks and Fire TVs, so you can bring your home entertainment experience to the next level.

What to Consider

When you’re looking for Fire Sticks or Fire TVs, there are a few things you’ll want to consider. Here’s what you should be thinking about when shopping:

First decide whether you want a Fire Stick or Fire TV. A Fire Stick is a device that plugs into your current TV's HDMI port and allows you to access various streaming platforms. A Fire TV has this feature built right in. No peripherals needed.

If you’re getting a Fire Stick, consider these features:

Picture Quality: Decide whether or not 4K streaming is important to you—more extensive sticks will have it.

Speed: The most expensive Fire Stick options have Wi-Fi 6 for faster connection.

Budget: The more features these devices have, the more expensive they tend to be.

For a Fire TV, you’ll obviously want to consider the TV’s size and picture quality. One additional feature to consider is Alexa support. Certain Fire TVs will allow you to use Alexa voice assistance hands-free, so you don’t even need a remote.

How We Selected

In order to provide you with the best breakdown possible, we’ve divided our round-up in half — the first half is Fire Sticks and the second half is Fire TVs. Simply scroll to whichever option you’re looking to buy. We also categorized them by features and budgets, making it easier to find one that fits your needs, and we checked our picks against other reputable websites, like Tom’s Guide, TechRadar, and Cnet.

Finally, we made sure all of our picks had at least four stars or more on Amazon, so you can trust that you’ll be getting a great product. Now just scroll on to bring your entertainment system to the next level!

Best All-Around Fire Stick
Amazon Fire TV Stick
$27.99 (30% off)

For our best all-around option, we opted to go with the original (now in its 3rd iteration) Amazon Fire Stick. This option isn’t going to blow you away with features, but it will definitely do everything you need it to do.

The handy remote has Alexa installed, so you can have it jump to whatever show or movie you’re thinking of watching. It also streams in 1080p, giving you a great quality picture. If you don’t have a 4K TV, this is definitely your best option, since you won’t need the ability to stream in 4K anyway. Plus, the price point is the best if you’re not including the budget option.

  • Perfect if you don’t have a 4K-capable TV
  • Comes with Alexa-enabled remote
  • Affordable

  • No 4K if you do upgrade your TV
The 4K Upgrade
Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K
$29.99 (40% off)

If your TV is equipped to display 4K, you’ll definitely want to go with the upgraded Amazon Fire TV Stick. This device will ensure you get the most out of your 4K TV, allowing you to stream 4K content in all of its glory. 

The upgraded Dolby Vision also gives you stunning vibrancy that you can’t get with the standard option. Of course, you get the Alexa-enabled remote with this option too. You will be paying a higher price point on this one than the standard option (unless you catch a great sale) but it’s worth it for the more immersive cinematic quality.

  • 4K streaming with Dolby Vision
  • Remote with Alexa

  • Expensive
  • Not worth the upgrade if your TV isn’t 4K
The Premium Fire Stick
Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max
$34.99 (36% off)

If the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K wasn’t quite fancy or fast enough for you, you’ll want to upgrade to the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max. This high-performance option does everything the last option does, while also adding Wi-Fi 6 support and Live View Picture-in-Picture features. The Wi-Fi 6 support allows you to get the fastest streaming speeds possible and the Live View Picture-in-Picture lets you check your front door camera without having to leave the couch. 

Overall, this isn’t a huge jump in price from the basic 4K version, so it’s worth it if you have a Wi-Fi 6 capable router or front door camera.

  • 4K streaming with Dolby Vision
  • Wi-Fi 6 capable
  • Live View Picture-in-Picture

  • Expensive
  • Not worth the upgrade if you don’t have Wi-Fi 6 or a front-door cam
The Ultimate Fire Streaming Device
Amazon Fire TV Cube
$74.99 (38% off)

Now for the ultimate streaming device in the Fire lineup—the Amazon Fire TV Cube. This device comes with everything you’ve come to expect from the other options. So you’ll get 4K streaming with Dolby Vision, Live View Picture-in-Picture, and access to all of your favorite streaming apps. The big draw for this one though is the hands-free voice control with Alexa. No remote required, you can just ask Alexa to pull up your show or movie, turn up the volume, dim the lights, and more. 

You also get 16GB of storage, meaning you can have more apps downloaded onto your device, whereas the other options all come standard with 8GB. The downsides to this option are the price and the lack of Wi-Fi 6 capabilities.

  • Hands-free voice control
  • 4K streaming with Dolby Vision
  • Live View Picture-in-Picture
  • 16GB of storage

  • Most expensive option
  • No Wi-Fi 6
The Budget Option
Amazon Fire TV Stick Lite
$19.99 (33% off)

This bare-bones, no-frills option comes in at the most affordable price and lets you get access to all of your essential streaming services. You’ll still get 1080p streaming and a handy remote, but the remote is a little more basic than the remotes that come with the upgraded versions. 

Also, all of the other options are equipped to support Dolby Atmos audio if you have it, whereas this option is not. But, if none of that matters to you, this is a great pick.

  • No-frills
  • Most affordable option

  • More basic remote
  • No 4K
  • No Dolby Atmos support
Best All-Around Fire TV
Amazon Fire TV 50-Inch 4-Series
$359.99 (23% off)

If you’re needing a new TV altogether, you can just skip the streaming devices and get a TV that has it already built-in. An Amazon Fire TV will be the perfect fit. This particular TV is the 50-inch version of the 4-Series. The Amazon Fire TV 4-Series is great for everyday entertainment and comes equipped with 4K Ultra HD capabilities. 

You’ll also get an Alexa Voice Remote, multiple HDMI ports, Dolby Digital Plus audio. It’s pretty much anything you could want out of a 4K TV, making it our best all-around option.

The Upgraded Fire TV
Amazon Fire TV 65-Inch Omni Series
$659.99 (20% off)

That’s not all the Omni Series brings to the table, it also has hands-free Alexa support, so you don’t even need a remote to operate your Smart TV. Also, you can do two-way video calling from the comfort of your couch. And at 65 inches, this TV should be plenty big for most entertainment spaces.

  • 4K Ultra HD with Dolby Vision
  • Hands-free voice support
  • Two-way video calling

  • Expensive
Best Budget Fire TV
Insignia Amazon Fire Edition 24-Inch HD TV
$119.99 (52% off)

If you’re looking for a Smart TV on a budget, the Insignia Amazon Fire Edition 24-inch HD TV should fit the bill perfectly. This TV is on the smaller side, but it’s great for smaller entertainment spaces, kitchens, kids’ rooms, or bedrooms. 

It also has 1080p picture, a handy voice remote, and all of the streaming services you could need. Plus, the price for all of these features just can’t be beaten. Oh, and if you have an Amazon Echo device, you can pair it and turn this into a hands-free TV.

  • Affordable
  • Can pair with Amazon Echo

  • No 4K
  • Might seem small in bigger spaces
Best Budget 4K Fire TV
Toshiba Amazon Fire Edition 43-Inch 4K TV
$249.99 (29% off)

If you’re wanting to get a 4K Fire TV, but you’re wanting to get a decent budget price, the Toshiba Amazon Fire Edition 43-inch 4K TV should fit what you’re looking for. 

This TV comes at an affordable price, has 4K Ultra HD with Dolby Vision, a voice remote, and all of your favorite streaming services. Just like our other budget option, you can always connect this device with an Amazon Echo to turn it into a hands-free TV.

  • 4K Ultra HD with Dolby Vision
  • Decent size at a relatively affordable price
  • Can connect with Amazon Echo to be hands-free

  • Expensive compared to our non-4K budget option
The Top-of-the-Line Fire TV

This TV will truly turn your living room into an at-home theatre. Of course, the major downside of this option is going to be the hefty price tag.

  • 4K UltraHD with Dolby Vision
  • Huge 75-inch screen
  • Hands-free Alexa and two-way video calls

  • Most expensive option on the list
