The Fire TV Stick has been one of Amazon Canada’s best selling products but with the recent introduction of the Fire TV Stick 4K, it hasn’t been as attractive of an option. It was cheaper but lacked 4K capability and the Alexa Voice Remote. Today Amazon Canada announced a new Fire TV Stick which includes the all-new Alexa Voice Remote and it’s priced the same as the previous version at just $49.99.
Starting today you can pre-order the new Fire TV Stick with All-New Alexa Voice Remote on Amazon Canada ahead of its release date of January 23, 2019.
The Alexa Voice Remote’s main benefit is as the name of the product suggests, Alexa voice control. You’ll be able to control your Fire TV Stick using your voice and be able to search video content as well as control select smart home devices.
In addition to adding voice control, the new remote also benefits from having power, volume and mute buttons which the previously bundled Fire TV Stick remote did not have. You’ll no longer need to keep your TV’s remote handy while using your Fire TV Stick.
Amazon Canada has also dropped the price of the Alexa Voice Remote by half. You can purchase just the remote for $19.99 (regularly $39.99) while supplies last. This is a great option for those who previously purchased the Fire TV Stick and want to upgrade to the new Alexa Voice Enabled remote.
The update to the Fire TV Stick helps make it a much more attractive option for those with older, non-4K TV sets. If you’re in the market for a Fire TV Stick you can setup a RedFlagDeals Deal Alert to be notified as soon as a deal appears for it.
