    Default Amazon Fire TV Stick £19 (Prime Members)

    Two days only starting today you can pre-order the Fire TV Stick from Amazon.

    Yes another TV Dongle Thingy... but if you are a Prime Member £19 seems like a good deal. This plays Prime Instant Video, Netflix, Plex etc.. Comes with a remote and everything you need.
    Apparently if you are not a Prime Member and sign up, you can get this for £7. Prime is £80 a year though.. There are ways to make it a better deal, like complain when you get delayed deliveries (1 free month). Don't always take the Prime Delivery option (They give you £1 credit for music/apps).

    Anyhow, this is normally £35 so for £19 it is worth a punt. I am sure I can find space in a drawer for it if it is rubbish.

    That's decent that mate.

    I have Prime, but don't use Prime Video. Have a NOWTV in the back bedroom for Plex but would be nice to pull something together simple for mobile travel too!

    Just bought!

    I think I will plug this into my Projector. I have Prime Video built into the TV but to be honest never use it!
    But to have a dongle plugged in with Plex and the off chance we might watch a movie on the projector from Prime, seems like a no brainer.

    I have a guest Prime membership thru' a mate. Appears only the Prime holder gets the deal, not 'family' members otherwise I would probably have bitten to add to the growing list of kit bought just for the fun of it.

    That's right.

    Best thing I did was purchase PRIME and and believe you can add 4 family members onto it to get the benefits of PRIME delivery. I sold all 4 slots to friends for a tenner a pop. PRIME only £40 a year for me then.

    Oooh, didn't realise you could gift it like that. I am forever ordering for the same friends/family.. Although sometimes I do take the slow post to get the £1 credit if it is not urgent for them

    My mistake.
    Goes into your basket @£35 but discounts down to £19 when you proceed to checkout.

    Bought. But god knows when I'll use it.

    Comes out 15th April. Time to cancel if I come to my senses

    You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.

    On my PC it runs OK but you still need a solid repository and a solid connection to avoid buffering, some of the HD ones are bang on

    Only lets you do one, tried the same

    As for Kodi, not sure it has an app? *Edit* just saw there is a Fire TV App. This is a massive bonus if it runs on the stick.

    You can sideload the android version of Kodi.
