Amazon Fire TV Stick Basic Edition in Oz for $69

By

With Amazon having finally gone live in Australia last week, its Fire TV Stick has been on sale down under, too.

So, what is the new "Fire TV Stick Basic Edition?

We're told that it is "a streaming media player that provides simple and fast access to thousands of movies, TV shows, apps, and games from providers such as Amazon Prime Video and Netflix", although I'm not aware of Netflix offering any games.

It is also an inexpensive and easy way for Amazon to get its content to your screen.

Naturally, Amazon promotes its Prime Video service, and says that, "members are now able to watch hit Prime Originals, including season two of The Grand Tour, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Mozart in the Jungle, Jean-Claude Van Johnson, which premieres on December 15 and more." 

The streaming media player "comes with a quad-core processor and 1GB of memory for a fast fluid streaming experience, as well as 8GB of storage. It features 802.11ac Wi-Fi and High Efficiency Video Codec support for great 1080p HD streaming".

You can also "play popular games like Hungry Shark Evolution, Pac-Man 256, Crossy Road, Hill Climb Racing, and more".

As you'd expect, the device "easily connects to your TV’s HDMI port. Once plugged in, simply connect to your Wi-Fi, enter your Amazon account details and start streaming in minutes".

The Fire TV Stick is available for $69 on Amazon.com.au alongside Kindle e-readers.

The company says its customers "can choose from the most affordable Kindle selling at $109, to the Kindle Paperwhite from $159, to the all-new Kindle Oasis from $389". 

On top of all that, "Kindle e-readers and the Fire TV Stick come with free delivery within Australia."
