Amazon’s Prime Day deals this July was a loot. However, if you missed that, don’t worry. The Black Friday deals are no less. Amazon is offering massive discounts on the Fire TV line of devices once again. While the Black Friday sale on other devices started a bit earlier, massive discounts on FireStick will be available from November 27, 2019.
We don’t know how long the offers will last. So, if you haven’t grabbed it yet, do it now.
FireStick is one of the most popular streaming devices. Not only do you get access to tons of popular Fire TV Apps and Channels like Netflix, Hulu, Starz, HBO, and more, you can also install loads of third-party apps onto your Fire TV Stick. With FireStick, there are endless streaming options.
FireStick Black Friday Deals in 2019
Here are the discounts up for grabs:
FireStick 2nd Gen: $19.99 (original price $39.99)
Fire Stick 2nd Gen + 2-Month Showtime subscription: $19.99 (original price $39.99). Available only to the Prime Members
FireStick 4K: $24.99 (original price $49)
Fire Stick 2nd Gen with Echo Dot Bundle: $41.99 (original price $89.98). Use the code ECHOTV during checkout
Fire Stick 4K with Echo Dot Bundle: $46.99 (original $99.98). Use the code ECHO4K during checkout
FireStick 4K with AmazonBasics HD Antenna: $59.99 (original price $90.96)
What is the difference between FireStick 4K and FireStick 2nd Gen?
First, FireStick 4K supports Ultra HD (UHD), which is more popularly known as 4K resolution. Additionally, it features HDR10 and Dolby Vision for greater contrast, richer colors, and sharper pictures. On the other hand, FireStck 2nd Gen can only stream in up to Full HD (1080p) quality. It does not offer HDR or Dolby Vision support.
Apparently, FireStick 4K affords a much better viewing experience. However, there is a catch. You must have a 4K compatible TV to exploit the resolution quality the device is capable of. Furthermore, the streaming app must also have 4K videos. Most of the streaming platforms, such as Netflix or Hulu, offer 4K streaming depending upon the subscription plan.
If you do not have a 4K TV, you might just as well buy FireStick 2nd Gen. However, if you do plan to upgrade your TV in the future, it would be a good idea to buy 4K instead, especially when it costs only $5 more during this Black Friday period.

Install third-party apps: Your FireStick supports Amazon Store, where you can find lots of apps for your device. However, there are some awesome apps that aren’t available on the Store.

Safeguard FireStick with a VPN: For online streaming, we believe that a VPN is a must-have tool. With a VPN, you can stream anonymously without having to worry about surveillance, hackers, and identity thieves. Additionally, a VPN helps you unblock region-restricted content on popular streaming services like Netflix and Hulu. At the time of writing this article, there are several Black Friday VPN deals, but ExpressVPN is my favorite and one of the best VPNs for Firestick. You can follow this guide to install ExpressVPN on Fire Stick.
