Claimed to be over 80 per cent more powerful than the best-selling Fire TV Stick, the Fire TV Stick 4K features a new Quad-Core, 1.7GHz processor, delivering a fast streaming experience, quicker load times and better picture quality. The Fire TV Stick 4K also gives you access to the vast catalogue of content currently available on Fire TV including 4K Ultra HD, Dolby Vision and HDR10+ titles.
The Fire TV Stick 4K is the first streaming media stick available with Dolby Vision. Just say, “Alexa, show me 4k TV shows” or “Alexa, watch Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan” Amazon says that with a growing catalogue of Dolby Atmos content, customers can also enjoy 3D surround sound when connected to compatible home audio systems.
The Fire TV Stick 4K also gives you access to thousands of apps and Alexa skills, as well as over thousands of movies and TV episodes. Users can enjoy favourites from Prime Video, Hotstar, Netflix, Sony LIV, Zee5 and others. With Firefox or Silk browsers, one can visit millions of websites like YouTube, Facebook and Reddit. They can also listen to songs, playlists, live radio stations, and podcasts through services like Amazon Prime Music, Saavn and TuneIn.
Users can also pair any of their Echo devices with the Fire TV for easy control of their entertainment experience using Alexa. Just ask Alexa to play and search for movies and TV shows, launch apps, and control playback on the Fire TV without lifting a finger.
As for the Alexa remote, it combines Bluetooth, multidirectional infrared technology and Amazon’s cloud-based service to control compatible TVs with a single remote.
