Amazon have finally gotten around to shipping their cool-sounding Fire TV stick. This is a gadget that people have been pretty hot for for a while now, but what’s all the fuss about?

Basically, this is one of the easiest devices out there for getting access to thousands more TV shows, movies, songs and more. It’s only $39 and all you need to do is plug it into your TV’s HDMI port. Do that and you’re already all set up! You do need external power (via a USB port) and you also get a small remote with your usual media buttons. Alternatively you can control the device via your smartphone apps which provide extra control. Setup is easy basically and it’s also easy to interact with.
