TL;DR: The bestselling Fire TV Stick streaming media player comes with the Alexa voice remote, and Amazon has it on sale right now for just $29.99. It’s normally $39.99, so you’ll save $10.


Heading off (or back) to college this fall? Take it from yours truly, a world-weary graduate who managed to survive the rigmarole of a four-year degree: You don’t need a cable TV subscription. With the average package costing about $107 a month, according to one research firm’s estimate, that’s a lot of money you could be putting towards more important expenses, like tuition. Or textbooks. Or beer.

You’re much better off getting a streaming media player instead, TBH — and just in time for back-to-school shopping season, Amazon has its second-generation Fire TV Stick on sale for 25% off. Not counting its discount during this year’s Prime Day sales event, this is the cheapest it’s ever been. (The Mashable’s Choice Award-winning Fire TV Stick 4K is also on sale, FWIW, but its markdown isn’t as steep.)

The device itself plugs right into your TV’s HDMI port, allowing it to stream shows, channels, and movies from sources like Netflix, HBO Go, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, and YouTube over a WiFi connection. (Note: You’ll need separate subscriptions to these services in order to access their content.) This particular Fire TV Stick model includes a bonus Alexa Voice Remote, which means you can control it using just your voice; with thousands of built-in Alexa skills, it basically turns your regular ol’ TV into a smart TV. 

The Fire TV Stick also features 8GB of storage — more than any other streaming media stick — which means it’s got plenty of room for all of your favorite apps and games.

Head over to Amazon to grab a second-gen Fire TV Stick with the Alexa Voice Remote for just $29.99 — $10 off its suggested retail price of $39.99.
