Streaming services that can be selected directly via buttons are Prime Video, Netflix, Disney + and Amazon Music. The Fire TV Stick 4K Max will be delivered from October 7, 2021;
You can pre-order it now.
Update from 07.10.2021: From today you can order the new Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max without any further waiting time. Update end
The Fire TV Stick 4K Max, which you can pre-order from Amazon for 64,99 euros including free Prime shipping, is connected to the television, monitor or projector via HDMI. For the power supply, the cable included in the scope of delivery is connected to the included power supply unit and then connected to the power supply. The Alexa voice remote control, for which two AAA batteries are already included, is used for setup and control.
Once plugged in and set up, you can play videos, streams, films, series, documentaries, music, pictures and more. Moving images are transmitted with a resolution of up to 4K. The display of the high-resolution images then depends on the TV. Regardless of this, you can use the picture-in-picture function with the new streaming stick from Amazon. So you can continue to stream content while you operate menus, install apps or browse the TV programs.
The Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max has more performance all round compared to the provider's previous 4K streaming stick. Not only is the processor (CPU) faster, the graphics unit (GPU) also has higher computing power. In addition, more working memory (RAM) has been installed. All of this is also made possible by the picture-in-picture display mentioned above, which is new to the Fire TV sticks. In the following table you will find a comparison of the predecessor, the current model and the Fire TV Cube, i.e. the set-top box from Amazon.
