Apple TV 32GB - 4K (£179)
The Amazon Fire TV Stick has long been the secret way to boost the power of non-smart HDTVs or to add extra features without having yet another box eating up desk space. Connecting directly to the HDMI port and powered by USB, they are a hugely popular way to add channels like Netflix and Amazon prime to older sets.
The latest version is cheap for the amount of power on offer, providing 4K Ultra HD streaming at up to 60 frames per second (if your broadband can cope). If your services and screen support Dolby Vision, HDR 10, HLG, and HDR10+, then you get vivid colours and exceptional picture clarity.
On the audio side, the Fire TV Stick 4K Ultra HD now supports Dolby Atmos audio for more immersive audio, again if you have compatible hardware to enjoy it through.
With Alexa support built-in you can find shows through voice command, and navigate the slick menu system through the polished remote. Given that its name is now bigger than the tiny hardware, you will really be surprised at the amount of content available and the quality of output hiding behind your screen.
- Tiny, versatile and powerful
- Content quality often depends on your broadband speed
