Amazon announces the world’s most powerful streaming media stick yet

A bundle featuring the Amazon Fire TV Cube and the new Alexa remote can be pre-ordered for $119.99 and ships on October 31.

The new Alexa Voice Remote allows you to control your compatible TV and AV equipment, switch inputs, or tune to a channel on a cable box with a single remote. Amazon noted that in-app Alexa control is coming to a number of more specialized video services, including AMC, HBO Now and Sony Crackle. There's still support for far-field voice recognition which was added to the Fire TV past year, letting you control your content with Alexa by pairing the Fire TV Stick 4K with any Echo device. While that device didn't support Dolby Vision, Amazon claims that its customers preferred the stick design. It's marketed as a separate device as it can be used with most of the current range of Fire TV products. “Our new quad-core processor delivers a fast and fluid experience, and support for Dolby Vision and HDR10+ provides an fantastic picture.

Use your voice to control your Fire TV with the Echo, by giving Alexa instructions like searching for movies and pausing your show. "We have sold through the earlier Fire TV 4K edition inventory and we do not plan to replenish supply at this time", a spokesperson told Variety Tuesday. The device is available for pre-order from the website and will start shipping from November 14.

The Alexa Voice Remote will start shipping on the same dates for $30 / £30 / €30 when bought separately.
