The brand new Amazon Hearth TV Stick Max fixes the most important downside with streaming
Amazon is back with a new Fire TV Stick and it could fix the biggest problem with online streaming. The brand new Fire TV Stick 4K Max is not only 40 percent faster than its predecessor thanks to more RAM and a faster processor, it also has fast Wi-Fi 6 technology. That means it’s capable of streaming content at much higher speeds and should put an end to the annoying buffering of trying to watch a movie in the ultimate 4K Ultra HD resolution.
Streaming a show in standard definition only requires an internet connection of around 3Mbps, but that jumps to at least 25Mbps if you switch to 4K, with some providers recommending at least 50Mbps for a smooth experience. Wi-Fi 6 is the next generation of broadband technology and ensures that the Fire TV Stick is now future-proof as more households switch to this upgrade.
Along with these new upgrades, the Max gets all of the usual features we’ve come to expect from the Fire Stick range, including full compatibility with HDR and HDR10 + streaming, as well as Dolby Atmos audio.
After connecting to your TV, you’ll get access to the usual platforms like Netflix, NOW, YouTube, Prime Video, Disney +, Apple TV, YouTube, Sky News and BT Sport.
And you can too lListen to songs, playlists, live radio stations and podcasts through services like Amazon Music, Spotify and Apple Music.
If you’re in the mood for one, the Fire TV Stick 4K Max is available for pre-order starting today for £ 54.99 and will ship to customers starting October 7th.
The news of this release comes as rumor has it that Amazon prepares to launch its first officially branded 4K TV in the US next month. The online retail giant has already gotten into the space, launching an Amazon Basics branded television in India, and partnering with manufacturers like JVC to bring televisions to market using the Fire TV software. However, the inbound product, which is expected to hit the market next month, will be the first high-end television to bear the Amazon logo.
