Amazon Introduces New Fire TV Stick 4K, Alexa Voice Remote

Posted October 04, 2018

The Fire TV Stick 4K is supposed to provide faster streaming and quicker load times with its new quad-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz. Dolby Vision & Atmos in a stickAmazon says that it is the “powerful streaming stick available”, with over 80 percent more horsepower than the last version. A bundle featuring the Amazon Fire TV Cube and the new Alexa remote can be pre-ordered for $119.99 and ships on October 31.

Amazon already sells two 4K streaming devices - the Fire TV 4K ($69.99) and Fire TV Cube 4K ($119.99) - but today the Seattle-based tech company has revealed a gadget that brings 4K to a more affordable form factor: the Fire TV Stick 4K. Amazon is also selling the new remote separately as it works with some of the other Fire TV products, so you can make use of the new power button and volume controls if you are willing to spend $29.99.

The Fire TV Stick 4K is the next-gen streaming stick to accompany the Fire TV 4K box, replacing the Fire TV Stick with Alexa that was introduced early a year ago. Support for HDR10+ and Dolby Vision will allow for greater picture quality, though you likely won't notice a big difference.

She also says the rhymer accused her of having an affair with Offset in June when they crossed each other's paths in Atlanta. Cardi B allegedly ordered an attack on two bartenders at the time, one of whom she believed slept with her husband Offset .

Moving onto the all-new Alexa Voice Remote, it helps existing Fire TV customers control all their entertainment by just asking Alexa. Both will begin shipping on October 31 in the U.S. and Canada. At the time, Amazon and Toshiba said that the extra buttons were added after owner feedback, though it seemed a little odd that they didn't then carry that over to Amazon's own Fire TV line-up.

Amazon's new Fire TV Stick 4K is effectively replacing the company's Fire TV with 4K Ultra HD, which the company introduced past year. Users in the UK, Germany, and India will have to wait until November 14 before orders begin shipping.

"What it (Fire TV Stick 4K) does is that it adds a lot more oomph into the performance of the Fire TV Stick".
