The new Fire TV Stick 4K Max for streaming via HDMI

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.
