good price. I paid £39.99 for mine so good price. Although if you already have a smart TV you won't see much more than you already have. voted hot all the same...
Great little stick, dual band too
Also compatible with screen mirroring on android

No, basically a now tv
I think this is the only stick that runs Now TV so if you have that then this is the one to go for. also I think you can power this through TV usb port whereas firestick needs to be plugged in, pretty sure that's right.
firestick woks fine through a TV USB port for power. Been using them on both of my TV's for over a year with no issues
*works!
Paid 39.99 for ours so a good price. It's the one stick or box that has all catchup services plus prime now tv and Netflix. It can also mirror from your phone or Android device as well
We stream Thai TV on ours, so the Mrs can lose hours watching Thai soaps. 555
Great support for Plex which sold it for me.

Yeah ...it depends on the make of TV....if the powers not enough the stick gives you a warning message.
can i use this stick in another country other than UK?
How does this compare with the Roku LT? My LT seems to be freezing quite a lot recently.

​Plex runs superbly and the 5ghz makes it a dream to stream.

Much better.
Roku also have a Slingplayer app, I don't know of any other common streamers that do.

This kept receiving updates and support past the Roku LT

Similar speed, a bit quicker I think. Roku 2 is faster again.

Source: my family has a Roku LT for the living room, Roku 2 for the bedroom and I have the Roku stick.

​didnt work out for me. I bought two in the hope I could side load Kodi. 1.5hrs later.. back to pc world with 2 firestick in hand.
For me the Roku has a better user interface but lacks the usability. Each to their own however.
Good price too if this is what people are looking for.
The have them at curry's for the same price too.
and in stock for home delivery at Currys.

​it better. it what I upgraded from , it faster , more stable (even wifi since its dual) and selling point for me is netflix app support profiles on stick and can sign in into hotel wifi. one negative for some ppl is it doesn't have network socket and other , if u lose remote it difficult as hell to get a new one.
can you get sky go on this?

does it require an mains plug or can it be run off the TV usb? my chromecast can which is a major consideration.

is this worth replacing an 1st gen chromecast with? the only difference I can see is ITV hub is supported is that correct?
This or Amazon stick
how do I cast showbox from my tablet to this stick?
