Fire TV 4k @ Argos - £64.99

63
Found 3rd Dec 2015
Argos just dropped the price of the fire tv to £65 (same price as JL, Amazon and Currys). Might be good if you want to pay with Amex and get £10 off £100 (obviously you'd have to buy some other tat for that to work)

​why not? You can return it and said it's not as expected. But just make sure it's looking good as new and resellable. Aaaa
This better than a M8s plus?

Brilliant Thanks
Hdmi only relevant for 4k at higher than 30 frames per second. Sadly 4k is the only reason I want the box as I wanted to try amazon prime 4k as my TV doesn't have prime.
No hdmi 2.0 is a deal breaker for me, but still a deal. Hot
ive reserved mine, thanks
HDMI 2.0 is not needed on a TV box. 4K movies/TV's shows are filmed at 24fps, HDMI 1.4 can manage that no problem.

The only time you would need HDMI 2.0 is for 4K gaming so you can achieve 60fps. Something this box will never be capable of doing.
been waiting for Argos to price match, had some vouchers burning a hole in my pocket!

Yeah I reserved one as well, from my local Argos - went down, first the pay kiosk gave the old price (£79), then when I went to a till the assistant informed me they didn't have one! So much for their computerised ordering/stock checking!
I have the 1st gen box and no 4K tv. Is this a significant upgrade from the original box performance wise?
interesting... this can be had even cheaper using cashback, gift cards from other posted deals
As a NowTV and Prime subscriber i'm torn, neither offers the others services as an option and by extension that means ROKU as well. I know the FireTV is based on android and I can see at least some progress on the NowTV app working on the FireTV but something windows based sadly still looks like the best option to do 'everything'.

If you want it for Kodi there are much better solutions for similar money, otherwise it's a good deal.

​You need 2.0a for HDR and 10bit colour

1.4 is not enough

WetekPlay running kodi.

I'd personally get one with a twin Satellite tuner for the extra £15-20 these can be had for around £65 without a tuner or £80ish with, that way all you need is a USB HDD then you have a Freesat PVR!

Typical I bought this on Sunday from John Lewis! Do you know if they will honour me this price now?
