There are a lot of different ways to watch your favorite shows these days. You can plug in a cable, hook up a satellite, or just go to your local Best Buy and make yourself at home in the TV section. If you’re trying to avoid the hassle of installation or occasional dirty looks from Best Buy employees, however, streaming devices are your best bet. There are quite a few options on the market right now, and choosing between them is mostly about how you prefer your user experience. Google Chromecast, Roku, and Amazon Fire TV all have a slightly different style of streaming, but only Amazon is having a Fire TV sale right now.
If you’ve never owned a streaming device before, Amazon Fire TV is really easy to use. Navigating between Netflix, Hulu, and Prime Video can be done with the touch of a button or a simple voice command given to Alexa. If you’re looking for something straightforward that can act as a hub for all of your different subscriptions, these deals are just what you need.
