The best Amazon Fire sticks for Paramount Plus

If you're in the market for a new Amazon Fire device, we've got thoughts on that, too.

For our money, the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K is the right pick for most people. It retails for less than $50/£50 — and you can often find it on sale for a lot less.

The second most important part is that it has all the specs you want in a modern streaming platform. As the name implies, it supports 4K resolution, which you absolutely want. It also supports Dolby Vision for HDR, which is the better of those standards. And if sound quality is important to you, it also supports Dolby Atmos, which can make sounds appear as if they're hanging in mid-air. It's pretty cool.

Plus it has everything Amazon could offer, including apps, games, movies and more. And because it's an Amazon device, you've got one-touch access to Alexa for all your searching and smart-home needs.
