The new Fire TV Stick 4K goes on sale in Germany. First, we took a look at the new streaming bar for the HDMI jack.
Amazon, Fire TV product category in the new version is clearing immediately. Square Fire TV Box is no longer available, customers are now able to choose for the first generation of 39.99 Euro Fire TV Stick for just 59.99 euro with Full HD resolution and the new 4K model.
The 20 Euro extra charge for the Fire TV Stick 4K is not only for the higher 4K resolution and for Dolby Vision and HDR10 + down support, but also for the 1.7 GHz quad-core processor. On top of that, at the first glance, the latest version of the Alexa audio remote control with small but highly welcome improvements: The remote control, which can also be purchased separately, now offers not only an on / off switch, but also a volume and mute control . Key that can be used to adjust the volume of the TV set without having to buy a second remote.
In addition to the ability to use the remote control for Alexa voice commands, the option to use the Fire TV Bar 4K through echo speakers is already aware of the old Generation generations. Although it may be a bit more difficult for me, the Alexa audio remote control is great in my opinion, which is much faster and more reliable than Apple's Siri Remote. Apple's attempt to integrate a mini-game controller at the same time cannot convince me.
The Fire TV Stick 4K is large enough to block the HDMI ports that are longer than two centimeters from the previous model, 108 x 30 millimeters in size, and are next to most TV sets. A short adapter cable is included in the scope of delivery, which can then be avoided and the bar can be placed more flexibly. In addition, a power supply and a micro USB cable are included, because without a separate power supply, the picture remains black at the corresponding TV input.
Regarding usage, everything remains the same except for the support of additional video and audio formats. Stick is recommended as a perfect match for an Amazon Prime subscription, which can of course also be used for video streaming offers, such as applications from Netflix, DAZN, or TV channels. Also, music services like Spotify can be downloaded from the Amazon App Store.
The Fire TV Stick 4K is available for a purchase price of 59.99 Euro from Amazon. As part of a publicity campaign, stop at 10 euros for a limited time when buying two sticks.
