Amazon Fire TV Stick (Gen 2)

$

A great entry level option from Amazon and great for kicking off your first digital signage project, the Amazon Fire TV Stick (Gen 2) can handle most content with ease. We think getting the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K is a better choice though, as for $10 more it’s more powerful and future proof.

Amazon Fire TV Stick Basic Edition

$

Sporting the same specs as the Amazon Fire TV Stick (Gen 2) but with the option to ship to over 100 countries, the Amazon Fire TV Stick Basic Edition is the Fire TV device to get if you can’t ship an Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K to your location. Keep in mind though that it’s a bit more difficult to install apps than with other Fire TV devices.

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K

$

Out of all of Amazon’s Fire TV devices, we most highly recommend the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K. With extremely good value for money, it’s great for kicking off your first digital signage project and can handle even demanding content with ease. Our only complaint is that it’s not specifically designed for digital signage and lacks features like good remote device management that come with more business-ready devices.

Android Box

$

Android boxes make for cost effective digital signage players and can be easily sourced. We recommend Android boxes running Amlogic or Rockchip chipsets and Android 8.0 or above. We think getting the Xiaomi Mi Box S is a better choice though, as it’s difficult to recommend any specific Android box with so many options and no clear winner besides the Xiaomi Mi Box S.
