Five tips on how to upgrade your old

With nearly two thirds (63%) of Brits admitting they’ve thrown away on average

With nearly two thirds (63%) of Brits admitting they’ve thrown away on average one TV every year over the past decade, Amazon has worked with home improvement expert, Victoria Kirk (@thisenglishhome), to showcase how easy it is for customers to convert standard TVs into smart ones.

The timely tips have been released as new research from Amazon reveals that nearly a third (32%) of Brits are looking to have a spring clean of their old technology this year. With a few simple steps, there's no need to get rid of old plasmas, LCDs, or old-school boxes, with a simple, ultra-affordable upgrade that can refresh your old tech with Fire TV*.

Customers can use a Fire TV device to modernise their TV experience by spending as little as £34.99 with the Fire TV Stick Lite. Fire TV devices use built-in processors to power the streaming experience, offloading streaming from your TV and often making TVs—especially older ones—run faster and more smoothly. Even those who own a television, that doesn't include a HDMI port, can get the Fire TV experience with the simple addition of an adapter such as a DVI-to-HDMI cable, RF Converter or a HDMI scaler.

With Fire TV customers have access to thousands of films and TV shows from favourite apps including Prime Video, Disney+, Netflix and BBC iPlayer; fitness apps such as Fiit, Les Mills and Peloton as well as Amazon Kids+ content**. The entire Fire TV family of devices come with an Alexa Voice Remote so customers can use the power of Alexa to easily find, launch, and control content. Fire TV users can also control their compatible smart home using Fire TV by simply asking Alexa to dim the lights, display live camera feeds, stream music and much more.

Amazon has worked with Victoria to create hints and tips on how to upgrade your living room setup and give you access to a world of content, without having to throw anything away.
