Amazon recently launched its Fire TV Stick 4K, which means you, your friends and family can simply plug-in and enjoy easy access to 4K UltraHD content with the latest audio and visual enhancements like Dolby Atmos, Dolby Vision and HDR10+.

The Fire TV Stick 4K ships with Amazon’s versatile new Alexa Voice Remote, featuring more capabilities than ever before, including dedicated power, volume, and mute buttons so you can easily control your TV, soundbar, and other AV equipment with a single remote control.

Fire TV Stick 4K heralds a whole new era of unrivaled access to tens of thousands of channels, apps, and Alexa skills, as well as over 500,000 movies and TV episodes on Fire TV. Enjoy Netflix, Prime Video, Hulu, STARZ, SHOWTIME, CBS All Access, and others. Now, using Firefox or Amazon Silk browsers, you can visit millions of websites like YouTube, Facebook, and Reddit, and hear songs, playlists, live radio stations, and podcasts through services like Amazon Music, Spotify, and iHeartRadio. If you pair the Fire TV Stick 4K with Amazon’s Fire TV Recast and an HDTV antenna, you can easily watch, record, and replay free over-the-air TV programming.

It’s paired to 1.5 GB of DDR4 memory — a 50 percent increase over past Fire TV Stick models — with 8 GB of storage, Bluetooth 5.0, 802.11ac Wi-Fi connectivity and a micro USB port for power.
