          Mr Marc Whitten, VP - Amazon Fire TV said, “We’ve listened to our customers and pushed to deliver a higher performance Fire TV. The new quad-core processor delivers a fast and fluid experience, and support for Dolby Vision and HDR10+ provides an amazing picture quality,” He then added, “It is a complete 4K solution our customers are looking for, all within a compact stick form factor. The team invented an entirely new antenna technology & combined that with a powerful 802.11ac Wi-Fi to optimize for the best possible 4K UHD streaming experience, even in congested network environments. Plus, the all-new Alexa Voice Remote lets you control your complete entertainment experience & use your voice to find the content you want quickly. Just say, ‘Alexa, find comedies’, or ‘Alexa, play The Grand Tour’. 

            Not to forget about the thousands of apps and Alexa Skills catered for the Fire Stick and Alexa Remote. Same goes for the vast amount of content which includes new and upcoming movies and TV episodes present on Prime Video, Netflix, Hotstar and others.

            Finding anything on the Fire TV Stick 4K now becomes much easier with the help of the new Alexa Remote. Users can press and hold the microphone button to search Movies, TV shows, Apps, check sports scores and even order food, book a cab, view live camera feeds, control your smart home - all thanks to the Alexa integration in the Fire TV Stick. Users also have the novelty to enable the Far Field Voice control on their Fire TV Stick 4K with the help of their existing Echo devices. Now imagine integrating the recently announced Echo Plus and Echo Subdevices, that'll be like bringing a party to your home. Integration of Echo devices also translates to the fact that the user can now watch and enjoy movies & songs without even touching the Remote. Just say, "Alexa, play ******* on my Fire TV."
