Amazon adds 4K streaming to the Fire TV Stick

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K

If you're more interested in the new Alexa Voice Remote it comes with, though, it's available alone for $29.99, or with the Fire TV Cube for $119.99. The device can be pre-ordered effective immediately for$49.99, and will ship in the USA and Canada at the end of the month.

In addition to facilitating voice commands, the Alexa Voice Remote also features features dedicated power, volume and mute buttons for controlling compatible TVs, soundbars and receivers. The remote further includes "multidirectional infrared technology", so it'll work with auxiliary devices.

That's an incredibly comprehensive list of features for a product sold at $49.99 with an "all-new" Alexa Voice Remote thrown in for no extra charge.

Amazon Alexa Remote

The Fire TV Stick 4K delivers access to a catalog filled with thousands of 4K Ultra HD, Dolby Vision, and HDR10+ content, thanks to its new quad core, 1.7GHz processor, which will bring consumers a faster streaming experience, quicker load times, and better picture quality. It's compatible with all the latest generation Fire TV hardware.

This also means that much like Roku, Amazon is moving to a smaller form factor, and away from traditional streaming boxes, for most of its line-up. Once your trade-in is accepted by Amazon, add a Fire TV Stick 4K to your cart and the bonus savings of $20 will be taken out automatically during checkout. Users in the UK, Germany, and India will have to wait until November 14 before orders begin shipping. As for the Alexa support on Fire TV devices, Amazon says that you can easily find, search and control movies, TV shows and apps. In the coming weeks, Amazon will begin including the new remote with the Fire TV Cube. "We are delighted to offer Alexa integration with the new Fire TV Stick 4K".
