Adding some new, smarter features to your TV is becoming more affordable than ever before. Last year Amazon debuted the Fire TV Stick Lite as a lower-priced alternative to the regular Fire TV Stick. Though it includes nearly all of the same features as the more expensive models, the Fire TV Stick Lite can normally be found priced at just $29.99 — a $10 drop from the price of the standard model and $20 below the cost of the 4K model.

Today, thanks to a limited-time sale at Amazon, the Fire TV Stick Lite is dropping even lower in price to just $21.99. This $8 discount brings this streaming device just a few dollars above the sale price we saw during Black Friday and Cyber Monday last year, and there's no telling how long it will be before we see a similar price again once this offer ends. You can even get a free year of Food Network Kitchen with the purchase!

Start streaming all your favorite shows and new films with the Fire TV Stick Lite. This is Amazon's more affordable Fire TV Stick that includes nearly all of the same features as the standard Fire TV Stick, but without TV controls on its remote.

The main difference between the Fire TV Stick Lite and the Fire TV Stick is the remote that each comes with. The Fire TV Stick's remote is capable of controlling your TV's power and volume controls while the remote that comes with the Fire TV Stick Lite doesn't include those buttons. They both stream in 1080p HD and can both access all the same apps, from Netflix and Disney+ to Hulu, HBO Max, Apple TV+, and more.

Meanwhile, those who are hoping to stream 4K content will want to upgrade to the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K. It's the same as the Fire TV Stick but with the capability of streaming in 4K for enhanced picture quality. There's a deal on this model too, though it will only work on select Amazon accounts. If you're interested, use promo code 4K21FTV during checkout and you may be able to save $20 off its regular price of $49.99.
