You can already purchase a 4K streaming device from Amazon. The Fire TV 4K and Fire TV Cube 4K are readily available but today the company has launched a more affordable option. The new Fire TV Stick 4K, as the name suggests, is capable of streaming 4K content and comes with HDR+, Dolby Atmos, and Dolby Vision support.
A new remote ships with this device as well. Amazon is now taking pre-orders for the new Fire TV Stick 4K. The redesigned Alexa Voice Remote has volume buttons. The remote has Bluetooth and multidirectional infrared so it can be used with many compatible audio visual equipment. It can obviously be used to interact with Alexa through voice commands. The volume, mute, and power buttons have been added to this remote for the very first time.
It’s the first Fire TV Stick from Amazon to come with support for HDR10+. That’s also what sets it apart from the competition which includes products like the Chromecast Ultra and Roku Premiere.
Customers can pre-order the new Fire TV Stick 4K starting today for $49.99. It will start shipping in the United States on October 31st. Amazon is also selling the new Alexa Voice Remote separately for $29.99.
