- As the company announced last week, Amazon has stopped delivering most nonessential products so that it can free up space in its warehouses for essentials.
- People still want certain devices while they self-quarantine though, and the Fire TV Stick 4K and Fire TV Cube are two of the last streaming media players that are still being delivered this week.
- There’s even a hidden deal that will save you a few dollars — Certified Refurbished Fire TV Stick 4K units are now back in stock while supplies last.

There are some fantastic deals out there right now if you’re in the market for a new streaming media player. The best ones might be the Roku Express HD that’s on sale today for just $24 and the newly upgraded Roku Streaming Stick+. The latter model is faster, it supports up to 4K resolution, and it can display HDR content with some of the most vivid colors you’ve ever seen, it normally sells for $60, but you’ll find it on Amazon today for just $39. That’s an even better price than we saw during Black Friday last year!
Both of those deals are terrific indeed, and they’re great for anyone who doesn’t have an immediate need for a streaming media player. That’s right, because Amazon is no longer shipping most nonessential products in order to free up capacity for things like medical supplies, those devices won’t be delivered until sometime in late April or early may. If you want a streaming media player that will ship out immediately so you can use it while you’re cooped up at home during the coronavirus lockdown, you really only have two good options.
First up is the Fire TV Cube, which Amazon bills as the “fastest, most powerful Fire TV.” That’s true indeed, and the Fire TV Cube has all the streaming media features you could possibly want. But that isn’t the best thing about it compared to other Fire TV devices. Instead, it’s the fact that it has hands-free Alexa support built right in. It’s basically an Echo Dot combined with a Fire TV Stick 4K, and it’s in stock right now and ready to ship.
The other hot streaming media player you can still get delivered right now is the Fire TV Stick 4K, which is by far Amazon’s most popular 4K-enabled Fire TV product. It gives you access to every single streaming media service you can imagine and even at full price, it’s an incredible value.
As we mentioned, there’s also a somewhat hidden deal available on Amazon right now that you definitely won’t find unless you know what you’re looking for. Certified Refurbished Fire TV Stick Units are back in stock, which doesn’t happen very often, and they’re on sale at a discount. They’re guaranteed to look and work just like you or you can return them for a full refund, so you really have nothing to lose!
