New Amazon Fire TV tops Apple TV with 4K

Amazon goes where Apple did not with the new Apple TV. Today, Amazon announced the next generation of Fire TV with support for 4K Ultra HD, and the new Fire TV Stick with Voice Remote. 

The new Amazon Fire TV provides access to more 4K Ultra HD movies than any other streaming media player says Amazon. The new Fire TV supports  4K content from Netflix, Amazon Video, and Prime Video. Already available in 4K are shows and movies from Amazon Video such as Transparent, Better Call Saul, American Hustle, and Amazing Spiderman 2, as well as shows and movies such as Narcos and Marvel’s Daredevils from Netflix.

“The team has packed an incredible amount of technology and innovation into a tiny package,” said Jeff Bezos, Founder and CEO. “The new Fire TV includes 4K support, more processing power, Alexa integration, the largest selection, and exclusive features—for less than $100. The new Fire TV Stick with Voice Remote brings voice search and Alexa integration for less than $50. These are powerful devices at incredible prices.” 

Last year, Amazon introduced the first Amazon Fire TV, combining voice search that actually works, fast and powerful performance, and an open ecosystem to deliver the easiest way to watch Netflix, Amazon Video, HBO NOW, Hulu, WatchESPN, and more on your big-screen TV. Since launch, Fire TV has become the #1 best-selling Amazon device category, with Fire TV Stick quickly becoming Amazon’s fastest-selling product ever.

The new Amazon Fire TV is available for pre-order today for $99.99 on and will start shipping on October 5. Fire TV Stick with Voice Remote is available for pre-order today for $49.99 at and will start shipping October 22.
