The Fire TV Stick 4K Max is the first streaming media player to come with the Fire TV Ambient Experience and features an upgraded 2.0GHz quad-core processor, making it Amazon’s smartest and most powerful streaming stick yet.
“This is my fourth Fire Stick. The new Max with extra ram and storage is needed. Fast reliable. Great for TVs that have a slow operating system or dodgy remote. Install the Fire Stick and away you go,” one customer said.
“I have one in the garage when I am tinkering around and have Spotify or YouTube playing.
“I don’t watch regular free to air much so the Max does the trick for me.”
The Fire TV Stick 4K is the next generation of Amazon’s best-selling 4K streaming media player.
It features an updated 1.7GHz quad-core processor, the model is nearly 30 per cent more powerful than the previous generation.
“It’s the best Christmas gift stocking filler,” said another customer.
