seemed a great deal for this item if your lucky to find stock but there is 20 stores with stock according to the website & one store has 23 in stock so worth a look & thought worth a post

no you cannot you have to go check in your store but you can check stores stock online
None near me I'm afraid. Shame, I'll have to wait until the drop to £29.99 again
Probably be a wasted trip anyway. They cancelled my order for a HDD I made even though their site stated it’s stock. When queried their reply was “I can assure you it’s not in stock, it’s a website error”. Good luck with shopping these joeys!
What's the rrp? This doesn't sound like a deal. I bought one which went funny after a couple of months. The replacement didn't even work as the remote refused to pair. No remotes would pair with it!

My 4k fire box is still working well though

*yikes £40! I thought I paid 27 before Xmas. Confused

Yep, £39.99 for the 2017 model. I hear good things about it from friends but think I'll wait for the next price drop.
Don't bother. Overpriced before, still overpriced now. Few decent deals, no delivery, not in stock near you, will not deliver to your local shop for collection. Also, false advertise on website, item in stock and when you want to buy it is not in stock, price match advertised and they do not do it, directs you to ring customer service but when you do that, the number not in used anymore. Sent an email to raise all of the above, the answer was that because they are in administration, the website is not updated often, also the deals on website are not relevant, are old and the website was not updated. More of a pain, no surprise they are in administration.
Hot for the price if you manage to get one.

Hot. I went to the Truro branch. After intially telling me they didn't have any and suggesting they might've been stolen I did manage to convince them to actually check... They found one and albeit begrudgingly sold it to me too.

What are these like on a slow internet connection. Not good speeds where I am but Netflix still works well whatever way it is set up.

Install APKTime on your stick then in the 'Fire Devices Only' install the 'Smart Youtube TV' apk.

Thats not my point. My point is you slag off anything that is not 4k.

As for the 2nd gen firestick... works fine for me with Kodi.... no buffering. Maybe you are using poor quality sources or need a better quality internet connection?

It's not even been out "many years" 😄

Even my first gen happily plays 1080p

I think this is more aimed at people with 1080p set's. The bigger one for around £50 - £60 is what you need for 4k content.

Even without Kodi or similar, the 2nd gen stick is really quick for everything I have used it for - much prefer it to all the Smart interfaces I have used.

Do you have one of the new ones to review it? I have one of these and it's great. I don't have a 4k TV. The new version is WAY faster than the old one. Everything runs fine on it. It only comes close to this price during sales, and it's usually £30. Great little bit of kit.

Isn't HD's 1080 X 1980 pixel's per square inch spectrum good anymore?.

That's a lot of picture density in a small space in itself. :-)

More than sufficient for most?. :-)

Ps.
The 4K equivalents of these things are nearer the £60-£70 mark ...

(As in more than double the price of the above ... )

Their online stock checker is rubbish. I went to two stores the other day in the hope to get a Kindle Fire which was showing in stock online but the stores said they have none.

I'm not sure which part of Town you are ...

But Camden currently has 6 of them in-store, if you're interested?. :-)
Made a John Lewis price match claim, they said no as Maplin are in administration...darn it! Worth a try and mention incase anyone else was considering it

Rang up local branch as stock said they had 1 , but the guy told that it had gone and that it takes 24 hours to update the stock level..... no wonder they are going under!

Well in my case it was 2 days ago and still both stores showing in stock online so I think the 24 hour thing is just made up.
Anyone know how to install BTsport on the fire stick ? I followed the guides as it requires google play services. However I can’t the btsport to update to latest version
Download kodi then pure sports addon for all your TVs channels sky sports by sports etc etc
Sideload Stb emu or smart Iptv and these will do a good job on IPTV.
