'Something' to go with TV for boys' room?

So we've got the DSs (10+11) a TV for their room for Christmas. Itbhas an built in DVD player and an HDMI port. I was thinking of something like a chromecast/fire stick/now TV thing to go with it. Budget is £30-40, they want a console but will be saving for that themselves. TV won't be on sky or anything, in fact I would rather not have to wire it in to aerial or whatever at all.

Can someone more clued up please suggest what I can get? Thanks.

Chromecast is great. They can use their phones/ipads to 'cast' bbciplayer etc to the TV. The other two options both cost per month, I think?

We have a Chromecast is our playroom. TV not connected to anything else. We use it rarely to cast cbeebies or the odd film.

Definitely don't want a monthly subscription. Though I'm already a prime member so a fire stick presumably would work with that?

Get a fire stick and instal kodie on it. Free tv programmes and movies.

Or net flix.

Beanbags or chill seats of some sort?
