The newly launched Fire TV Stick is a complete 4K solution for the users as it comes with access to Amazon Prime Video, Hotstar, Netflix, Sony LIV and ZEE 5, among others. That's always been one of the primary frustrations of Amazon's streaming boxes, though the Fire TV Cube did add Alexa support for voice-controlling volume. The Alexa Voice Remote can also be pre-ordered for $29.99 or $119.99 if paired with the Fire TV Cube. Support for HDR10+ and Dolby Vision will allow for greater picture quality, though you likely won't notice a big difference.

"The device will be available on pre-order on starting today and will start shipping on November 14". It has a small Fire TV dongle capable of playing 4K video and supported HDR 10.
