  • The new Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K

Also, 4K TVs in India are available at a low price of Rs 36,999, so the newly launched 4K version of Fire TV Stick could get a good reception from the audience though.

The Fire TV Stick 4K will ship on October 31 and is now available for pre-order from Amazon for $49.99.

The Dolby Vision support is also notable; Roku recently announced its own sub-$50 4K media streamers, the Roku Premiere and Premiere+, but they only support HDR content in HDR10 and not Dolby Vision.

With the Alexa Voice Remote, you can tap into the in-app voice control features on apps including Netflix, Hulu, and Showtime.

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 control also comes with additional power, volume and mute buttons, that will enable users to control compatible televisions with a single remote.

The new Alexa Voice Remote brings with it the ability to control your TV and any AV equipment connected to it.

The "Alexa Voice Remote" is available for standalone purchase at Rs 1,999. Our new quad-core processor delivers a fast and fluid experience and support for Dolby Vision and HDR10+ provides an awesome picture.

An "entirely new" antenna design pairs with a "powerful" 802.11ac Wi-Fi chip to provide a "more seamless 4K UHD streaming experience" in a slightly heftier package than before that. still looks like a diminutive stick. It's marketed as a separate device as it can be used with most of the current range of Fire TV products. At the time, Amazon and Toshiba said that the extra buttons were added after owner feedback, though it seemed a little odd that they didn't then carry that over to Amazon's own Fire TV line-up. Amazon will sell it separately for $29.99, and also begin shipping to consumers on October 31.
