Only thing putting me off is I have the original firestick and it's slow as hell doing anything!!
I'm hoping and surely there would be an improvement on speed!

Some video encoding might not work. Some services serve content that the firestick just can't decode. That said its very very rare, and i've not tried to install any codecs so there's probably a solution out there.

My endorsement: I bought a smart samsung TV about 2 years ago, I only use a FireStick now.

Anyone know the story with Fire Stick listings saying it only ships to the UK and some services are not available? I only need it for Netflix/Spotify but would like to add an Echo down the road. Anyone know what services are restricted on it?

Haven't seen this posted, thought they would have been a big seller.

but each warehouse item is individually priced depending on it's condition - the one you saw at 31.50 may not be the same one that was priced at 48...

The fire tv sticks have all of the prime video stuff showing, but won't work even if you subscribe to prime (or at least has never worked for me).

Is there any chance an annual prime membership will be sold at a reduced price?

Did they do that before on prime day or a previous black friday or am I mistaken?

Bose QC20s are £149 . Amazing little headphones if you want noise cancellation without having to carry huge cans.

I don't recall that. I do recall a post on here about getting student prime. It's free for 6 months, then £39 for the year. Costs about 15 euro to set yourself up as a student.

Waste of money

It takes 5 minutes to open a new account

You can flick from one account to another to scoop up all the £5 and £6 promotions that appear on the different accounts
