not yet..

youtube will ill no longer be supported from 2018

worse still they have ditched the Screen calibration tool on the fire stick V2 so you are loosing some of the picture and can't zoom ou
No 4k . Poor performance. Negative.
Just in time for them to dump youtube

Or....

Cheapest available price at the moment. Hot! Thanks for sharing.

Speaking from experience there's nothing wrong with performance. Runs a VPN whilst streaming without issue. Runs all the apps I've tried and is perfectly snappy. Some games tax it but I doubt this will be the primary reason for getting one!

Thanks again for sharing

You can apparently side load the smart TV version of YouTube. Not tried it personally, but plenty of hand-holding resources out there to show you how to do it.
My 1st gen one won't update iPlayer. So won't let me use it.

Now my new TV has Amazon prime, Netflix, YouTube and all the UK TV catch-up services it will sit in the drawer with all the other old junk.
I like the Fire TV Stick more than my PS3 for watching Youtube. It's slightly slower to navigate, and its the same glorified website affair because Google are too lazy to make proper native apps, and yes Google are abusing their monopoly by removing it on Jan 1st to strongarm Amazon, but it's good while it lasts mainly due to the remote control.

Its enjoyable despite its many flaws. Though the UI is confusing at times because browsing Prime Video is cumbersome - more clunky than the Netflix app, go figure. The voice search is handy but it doesnt work across video apps.

We have an old Samsung TV (not smart at all that thing (lol)) and only use FreeView, that's why I initially bought the Fire Tv Stick, but to be fair, I have other ways of watching what I'd like to watch

I have a fire TV box I lent friend and she wants to get her own so she can give mine back. Is this good enough for NordVPN app and Terrarium TV and Mobdro. Or is she better off getting the fire TV box.

Because after a few years the apps on smart TVs are no longer updated. My 2013 Samsung Smart TV is now a non smart TV!

Don't agree TBH. Amazon won't sell google products but sell ones from other competitors, plus they won't allow google apps on their platform despite google allowing amazon apps in the play store. Hell, the amazon OS is based on android which google make. If anyone is abusing their monopoly it's amazon, and the reason youtube wasn't pulled immediately and instead has a deadline is to give amazon a chance to grow up and stop expecting everything so one sided.

'every' (?) new TV may be but there are many, perfectly serviceable, TVs in peoples homes that aren't. Cheap Upgrade.

I mean you can side load the smart TV app version of you tube to the firestick, not to a TV
Can you connect a hard drive to these? My old man uses a pi2 for kodi with a HDD attached that I fill up, but a tad slow.

Says £30 for me, just looked.
Odd, says £30 but when logged in it says £40 for me?
When you try to get it delivered or collected is says offer expired and is now £40?
I have got a tv which is HD ready and I only have one HDMI slot which currently has my Sky+HD box using it. I have got 6 months free of Amazon Prime (student deal) and would like to watch some films from my PC on my tv. Would one of these devices be suitable to use if I get a split HDMI lead so that both the Sky+HD box and the fire stick can stay permanently connected to my tv? How about Google Play - I have a couple of films on there on my PC, can you watch films on Google Play via the fire stick as well? As I only have a basic LG HD tv, will the Alexa voice remote actually work with my tv, or is it for top of the range smart tvs? Thank you.
Another question really about this stick - I am currently using my son's gaming PC as my PC is not working properly. Is what I have noticed is that if I don't use his PC for a while, it automatically switches itself off. If I am watching a film from Amazon Prime off of my PC via the fire stick, do you think that the PC will turn itself off if I'm sat down watching a film, or do you think it will stay on if a film is being watched on the fire stick?

Because I have a 10 year old plasma Hitachi television.

Not everybody wants to update their TV ever couple of years (for financial as well as environmental reasons).
In a nutshell what's the issue with Google and Amazon?

Because Curzon app not available on 2016 LG smart TV (it is on Samsung TV's). That's the only reason we got ours. Also good to hang off a non smart projector.

Amazon won't sell Google products so they are pulling YouTube in retaliation .
