What is Amazon Fire stick?
Amazon Fire stick is basically a kind of pendrive with quad core processor to support fast WiFi. It is a media streaming device to watch movies web series, apps and even games. It will convert your normal TV into a smart TV after inserting the fire stick in the HDMI Port.
Firestick is priced at Rs 3,999 in India and and Fire TV stick 4K is priced at Rs 5.999. It comes with built-in Alexa and voice remote. Enjoy favourites Prime video, Netflix, Zee 5, Hotstar, listen to songs and visit websites like Youtube, Facebook just with a small fire stick.
Replace your set top boxes with the fire stick. Just install Jio Tv or Airtel Tv on your fire stick and watch any channel that you like if you are a jio or airtel user. You just need a good WiFi connection and you are good to go. Along with normol TV you can even watch your movies, shows and play games but in the set top boxes, you can only watch normol tv channels with costly recharge plans.
Fire stick comes with pre registered amazon account. You don’t have to register your account first to use it. It is very convenient to use.
