Amazon started as online book store and has grown to be the worlds largest online retailer.
Amazon launches Fire TV Stick 4K for $49.99
Amazon has revealed a new device: the Fire TV Stick 4K, the most powerful streaming media stick available, plus an all-new Alexa Voice Remote. The two items are available together for $49.99. The Alexa Voice Remote is also available with the recently launched Fire TV Cube for $119.99 and can be purchased as a single remote for $29.99.
We’ve listened to our customers and pushed to deliver the complete 4K solution they are looking for, all within a compact stick form factor. The team invented an entirely new antenna technology and combined that with a powerful 802.11ac Wi-Fi chip that optimizes for the best possible 4K UHD streaming experience, even in congested network environments. Our new quad-core processor delivers a fast and fluid experience and support for Dolby Vision and HDR10+ provides an amazing picture. Plus, the all-new Alexa Voice Remote lets you control your complete entertainment experience and use your voice to quickly find the content you want. Just say, ‘Find 4K movies.’

The Fire TV Stick 4K gives you access to live TV whether it’s through streaming apps like Hulu and PlayStation Vue or through Prime Video Channels. You can also pair Fire TV Stick 4K with Fire TV Recast and an HDTV antenna to watch, record, and replay free over-the-air TV programming. It is also the first streaming media stick available with Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos.
The Fire TV Stick 4K is available for pre-order now on Amazon for $49.99 and will start shipping on October 31st in the United States and Canada. It will ship in the United Kingdom, Germany and India on November 14th. Fire TV Stick 4K is also available for pre-order in Japan and will ship before the end of this year.
Amazon are still selling the fire tv for $69.99 and they should stop selling it because the new fire tv stick has better specifications than the fire tv which is $20 more.
An example: the new fire stick has a 1.7 processor where as the fire tv has a 1.5 processor where with this the fire stick will be faster than the fire tv.
