The Mozilla MatchStick is an affordable HDMI streaming stick that is priced at only $12. Mozilla, known for their speedy Firefox web browser and recent smartphone launch have released a video streaming solution that is a less expensive alternative to Google's Chromecast and Apple's Apple TV platforms.

While Chromecast will set you back $35, the Mozilla MatchStick offers similar capabilities for a fraction of the price. The product's $12 deal isn't going to be around for long though and is available for a limited time through Kickstarter. Once its limited time offer ends, the product's final price is set at $25, a rate that still manages to beat those of more expensive competitors.

MatchStick will run on the Firefox OS and will appeal to fans of the popular Firefox web browser.
