TV Gadget of the Year 2018

Awards Winner
It’s all well and good having a 4K TV, but you can’t marvel at that pristine display without some Ultra HD content to show off what it can do. Enter Amazon’s Fire TV Stick 4K, complete with a fresh-faced Alexa voice-controlled remote that makes finding all of those super high-def shows and movies an absolute doddle. It's also the first Fire TV Stick to support Dolby Vision and HDR10+, helped by a hefty quad-core, 1.7GHz processor for faster streaming. Oh, and did we mention all of that power can be nabbed for a sexy six grand? In a category filled with fierce competition, the Fire TV Stick 4K wins out for leaving some extra bunce in our back burner to buy the best content.

The runners-up

If you just want to watch Netflix on your telly there really aren’t many easier ways to do it than with a Chromecast. Although with TV interfaces getting better all the time, are its days numbered?

Slick and speedy with Dolby Atmos support and a decent range of films available via iTunes, Apple TV 4K is undoubtedly impressive, but at £179 for the 32GB version, there are much cheaper ways to watch Ultra HD.
