Amazon takes its Fire TV Stick and turns it up to the 4K Max


The world is awash in the most advanced streaming devices ever, with Amazon's new Fire TV Stick 4K Max amping up the processing power, the Wi-Fi support, with Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos, a voice control remote and plenty more.

Amazon's most powerful streaming stick has launched with 40% more power than the regular 4K Stick with a new quad-core 1.8GHz processer and 2GB of RAM, and more features besides.

This extra power means your apps start faster, and navigation is more fluid.

The new capability to support Wi-Fi 6 also means smoother streaming in 4K when multiple Wi-Fi 6-connected devices are streaming, which is fast becoming a reality for people who have upgraded to new smartphones, computers, routers, and Fire TV 4K Max streaming sticks.

Promising rich audio and visual experiences, Amazon's Fire TV 4K Max supports 4K UHD, HDR, and HDR10+ streaming, as well as Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos.

As you'd expect, it also comes with the latest Alexa Voice Remote so you can easily use your voice to search for the content you want to watch, manage your smart home devices, and more.

There are also the four pre-set buttons to get you to your favourite apps quickly, and of course, you can control power and volume on your compatible TV and soundbar without needing another remote.

As you want from a modern streaming solution, Amazon's Fire TV Stick 4K Max gives you access to hundreds of thousands of movies and TV episodes, thousands of apps, and Alexa skills.

Amazon reminds us that you can Enjoy favourites from Netflix, YouTube, Prime Video, Disney+, Apple TV, Paramount+ in addition to local services like Stan and more.

Want free content? Then stream for free with YouTube or watch films & TV programs from local broadcasters including ABC iview, 10 play, 7plus, 9Now and more.

You can also listen to songs, playlists, live radio stations, and podcasts through services like Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify, and TuneIn.

So, what does it cost to go to the Max?

The Fire TV Stick 4K Max will retail for $99 is available for pre-order via the Amazon Fire TV 4K Stick Max site, and of course, you'll find it at JB Hi-Fi.

It will begin shipping to Australian customers on October 8th.
