Get Two Content-Loaded, Voice-Powered 4K Smart TV Streamers At A Discount
Stephan Jukic – February 08, 2019
Amazon’s 4K Fire TV streaming media sticks are among the best smart TV platform options in existence today. They offer up an absolute ton of both UHD 4K HDR content and all sorts of other entertainment (hundreds of thousands of hours’ worth) and they can be used with pretty much any 4K or even HD TV that has at least one HDMI port built into it. It’s that simple, and if you happen to dislike the functionality, content options or speed of your TV’s native smart platform, one of Amazon’s streaming sticks is a VERY easy to use alternative. You literally just plug it in and you’re good to go after seconds’ worth of basic setup options.
What’s more, each 4K Fire TV stick comes with its own smart TV remote that includes the excellent, state-of-the-art Alexa voice control system, letting you speak out numerous commends for content changes and other TV controls instead of having to tediously browse and select them through buttons. With the possible exception of Google Assistant, Alexa is considered one of the most sophisticated smart voice control systems in existence today for TVs and other electronics, so this extra feature is nothing to sneeze at.
The best thing about the 4K Amazon Fire TV stick has probably been its price though. These extremely powerful little devices are cheap by almost any standard, with one retailing for $49.99 online. This alone is a good price but it has now gotten even better in a unique deal that Amazon itself is pushing along. For the moment, you can grab two of these devices from their website for a minor but still helpful discount of $15 off the total price. This means that instead of forking over $100 plus taxes, you’ll only have to lay out $85 on the two of them. If you happen to have more than one TV of any kind with smart capability or at least HDMI connectivity in your home, two Amazon Fire Sticks are an excellent secondary content option. They even work with older HD TVs or earlier 4K TVs that don’t have HDR functionality, though you obviously won’t be access their 4K HDR content options. All the same apps and content along with Alexa functionality will be there however.
If however you do have one of today’s newer model 4K HDR TVs with full multi-format high dynamic range support, the 4K Amazon Fire TV stick is a perfect match despite its tiny size. It not only supports full native 4K ultra HD resolution, it also offers full HDR support for both HDR10 and content mastered in the exquisite premium Dolby Vision standard, which looks breathtaking in TVs capable of handling it (most Sony, LG, Vizio and TCL models). Again, with the Fire platform you get access to half a million movies, TV shows, documentaries and other content from sources that include majors like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, HBO Now and hundreds of others.
Here’s the Amazon double discount deal link and really, we do recommend the 4K Amazon Fire Stick almost across the board.
Amazon also sells a $40 no-4K version of their Amazon Fire stick in case you’re not interested in ultra HD calrity or high dynamic range color and contrast.
