Cozy Nights In With The Amazon Fire TV Stick*

It's cold, we're all still a bit skint from Christmas and there's nothing less appealing than the thought of a night out in a hurricane [I might be being slightly overdramatic here, but honestly - it's been pure gale-force here recently! I'm half expecting a cow to fly the window tbh, like in the film Twister.] 

And if you're anything like me [and have been too poor to step out of the house for a while] you've probably caught up on all your favourite TV series' and boxsets. So what now?

Simply plug a Fire TV Stick into your HDTV and boom - done.  

Staying in is the new going out, with this fab little stick [until the weather warms up by at least 10 degrees, that is!]

The Amazon Fire Stick can instantly stream tens of thousands of TV episodes and movies; from Amazon Video, Netflix, BBC iPlayer and more - plus games, music and apps. Straight onto your HDTV. It boasts 8 GB of storage and 1 GB of memory, plus a dual-core processor for fast streaming and smooth performance.

It's dead clever - kiss goodbye to the dreaded 'buffering' error messages - ASAP learns which Amazon movies and TV episodes you like and buffers them ready for playback; so they start right away. Plus, if you're a member of  Amazon Prime; you'll get unlimited access to Prime Video - including original programming such as Transparent AND two million songs with Prime Music.

I think you get my drift - this little gadget is frigging awesome -especially when the weather's this grim and around Valentine's Day, where you might fancy snuggling up with your other half to watch a romantic film together. Or Borat [which is totes what I'd pick] - whatever floats your boat, the Fire TV Stick will deliver time and time again.
