Amazon drops price of Fire TV Stick Lite to $20

But there's a catch: You have to be an Amazon Prime member to get the deal.

But there's a catch: You have to be an Amazon Prime member to get the deal.

Amazon has discounted the cheapest version of its popular Fire TV streaming device for members of its Amazon Prime service.

Right now, Amazon Prime members can get the Amazon Fire TV Stick Lite for just $20, with free one-day shipping offered in most areas. The device normally retails for $30 on Amazon’s website and other retailers.

The Amazon Fire TV Stick Lite is the most-affordable streaming device to offer Amazon’s Fire TV operating system. The device is capable of streaming high-definition content from a number of video providers, including Netflix, Hulu, Disney Plus, Sling TV, YouTube and HBO Max, and comes with an Alexa-enabled voice remote that works with the device and a large range of Alexa-compatible smart devices like wall plugs, light bulbs, thermostats and Ring doorbells and cameras.

The major difference between the Amazon Fire TV Stick Lite and other Amazon Fire TV devices is the Fire TV Stick Lite’s remote lacks buttons to control the power and volume of a TV set. The device also does not stream content in ultra-high definition (4K). For those features, the Amazon Fire TV Stick HD with upgraded voice remote ($40 at Amazon) or Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K ($50 at Amazon) are better options.

That said, for users who just want a no-frills streaming experience backed by one of the world’s biggest technology companies, the Amazon Fire TV Stick Lite is a good option, particularly for people who want to convert an older bedroom or office TV into a smart one. At just $20 for Prime Members, the Amazon Fire TV Stick Lite is a hard deal to pass up.
