Amazon has just dropped the price on its brand new Amazon Fire TV 4K streaming media player. We're not just a few bucks off either, we're $20 of them to make this the price on a 4K streaming we've ever seen.

The new 2017 version of the Amazon Fire TV is now in the form of a dongle to plug into an HDMI slot around the back (or side) of your TV. This is a much better than the old box, as we're sure you already have enough hardware surrounding your TV as it is.

The new Alexa-powered voice remote is excellent for asking it to you specific programs or movies to watch and all the leading streaming services are supported. Netflix, Prime Video, YouTube, Hulu, HBO, Showtime and Starz are good to go if you have memberships.

This marks the cheapest way to stream 4K HDR content onto your TV as rival 4K-ready /Apple TV devices or 4K gaming consoles are much more expensive. Heck, at this price, it's only $10 more than the cheapo Amazon Fire TV Stick (the one that doesn't do 4K), so you may as well - yourself with this one for when you get a 4K TV.

That's not the only big discount Amazon is running today though as there's still a huge saving to be had on the excellent Amazon Echo Dot which is down to $29.99 instead of the usual $49.99.
