I have both Chromecast and an Amazon Fire stick but only 1 HDMI slot on TV

Am I best off buying a 1 in 2 out cable or a box where I need to switch each one on or off. Or any other options?
Don't want to spend too much as I won't be using either that much.
TIA

I assume the problem is accessibility at the back of the TV, so buy an HDMI extension cable M/F and leave the non-TV end where it is easy to swap devices. Might be cheaper than a switchable cable/box?

Thanks - that was what I was hoping to do and would be the answer. Easy and cheap
