Per usual, there's not much in the way of ports on the Fire TV Stick. It will be available for pre-order starting today, 3 October for $50 in the U.S., £50 in the UK.

Amazon has brought its latest 4K supported Amazon Fire TV Stick to the Indian market at a price of Rs 5,999. Obviously the headline features about the streaming media dongle are straightforward: higher resolution than before, HDR support, and a faster processor and swifter WiFi. Last month, for instance, Roku unveiled new 4K devices starting at just $39.99 - $10 more if you want the voice remote. You'll have more reason to use the remote, as well.

Saudi king wouldn’t last 2 weeks without United States support: Donald Trump

These new standards support dynamic metadata, which can offer more detail in the bright and dark spots of an image (if you're watching a movie or video on a compatible TV, that is). The new remote now has dedicated power, volume, and mute buttons. The Fire TV Cube will also include Amazon's new Alexa remote. Priced at $29.99, it's compatible with the Fire TV Stick (2nd Gen), Fire TV Stick 4K, Fire TV Cube, and Amazon Fire TV (3rd Gen, Pendant Design). The team invented an entirely new antenna technology and combined that with a powerful 802.11ac Wi-Fi chip that optimizes for the best possible 4K UHD streaming experience, even in congested network environments.

The $49.99 Fire TV Stick 4K is up for pre-order on Amazon and goes on sale in the United States and Canada from October 31. Audio isn't forgotten, and you now get full Dolby Atmos support.

Barcelona will have to stop Spurs striker Harry Kane , who hit two at Huddersfield on the weekend after a spell out of form. When you're scoring as many goals as he is - 40, 50 or 60 goals a season - as a striker, I want to try and match that.

Marc Whitten, Vice President, Amazon Fire TV shares the following statement.

The "Alexa Voice Remote" is available for standalone purchase at Rs 1,999. Orders will begin shipping on October 31 in the U.S. and Canada. If you have only one Fire TV, your Echo device will pair as soon as you ask Alexa a question that includes Fire TV.
