New Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K supports Dolby Vision, Atmos and HDR10+

Fire TV Stick 4K is available for pre-order on Amazon.com for $50 and will start shipping on October 31 in the United States and Canada. It is the first streaming media stick available with Dolby Vision. Currently, most devices that stream at 4K resolutions with HDR color protocols cost $70 or more. It will retail for $49.99 and include the new Alexa Voice Remote. And as before, you can use Alexa on the remote to search for and launch content, control smart home devices, and more.

It's more than just basic 4K, however. Meanwhile, the new Alexa Voice Remote ($30) is also available for pre-order as a standalone unit with support for the previously released Fire TV Stick (2nd Gen), Fire TV Cube, and Amazon Fire TV (3rd Gen, Pendant Design).

All of this is powered by a new quad-core CPU and a faster 802.11ac wireless connection using a new antenna system. You can also buy this remote separately for older Fire TV devices. Not only does it come with an all-new Alexa Voice Remote, but it features Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos, and HDR10+ too - all at a rock-bottom price. The Alexa Voice Remote includes "multidirectional infrared technology" to ensure it will work with any auxiliary devices, as well as your TV. "Plus, Fire TV Stick 4K gives you access to the vast catalog of content now available on Fire TV including thousands of 4K Ultra HD, Dolby Vision, and HDR10+ titles", says Amazon. "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.

In addition to facilitating voice commands, the Alexa Voice Remote also features features dedicated power, volume and mute buttons for controlling compatible TVs, soundbars and receivers.
