"The team invented an entirely new antenna technology and combined that with a powerful 802.11ac Wi-Fi to optimize for the best possible 4K UHD streaming experience, even in congested network environments" said Marc Whitten, Vice President, Amazon Fire TV. While the setup, which consists of the Fire TV Stick and the Alexa Remote, is available for Rs 5,999, the Alexa Voice Remote, which can also be purchased separately to be paired with the Amazon Fire TV Stick, is priced at Rs 1,999. The updated Fire TV Stick is $10 more expensive than previous generations, but for the price hike, you are getting a lot of new things. On Wednesday, the e-commerce giant introduced its most powerful streaming stick to date and an all-new Alexa Voice remote.

Today, Amazon announced the Fire TV Stick 4K along with a new Alexa Voice Remote. Amazon unveiled the Fire TV Stick 4K in the United States a couple of weeks ago, and now, it has brought the same to the sub-continent. It's available here, it's cheaper than Roku's stick, and it supports both HDR 10+ and Dolby Vision - the first device to do so without ditching the stick-shape. The new Alexa Voice Remote works with nearly all Fire TV devices. "It is a complete 4K solution our customers are looking for, all within a compact stick form factor". Plus, for the first time, it features volume, mute, and power buttons.

The TV Alexa voice control experience can also be accessed via an Echo device.

It won't arrive in the UK, Germany or India until 14 November, however. The new Fire TV Stick which comes with 4K support also has Alexa Voice integration, which allows users to quickly search content hands-free. The same shipping timeline goes for the single Alexa Voice Remote.
