The holiday season is really just an excuse to binge an irresponsible amount of movies and TV shows, and if you need a new device for doing that, this Fire TV Stick 4K Max deal is for you. Amazon’s most advanced streaming stick is available at a steep discount for the very first time, giving you a cheap and easy way to get a bunch of 4K content on your TV.
The Fire TV Stick 4K Max is currently available for $34.99, which is $20 off and the first big sale we’ve seen on this relatively new streamer. If you’re looking to get your first streaming device or are upgrading from a non-4K Fire TV Stick, this is a great time to do it.
The Fire TV Stick 4K Max offers great performance and lots of useful features, and it's available at a steep discount right now.
The 4K Max is on the highest-end of Amazon’s streaming stick lineup, offering the fastest performance you’ll find in Fire Stick while supporting 4K streaming for most of the big services including Netflix, Hulu and HBO Max. It also has Wi-Fi 6 support, so those with a compatible router will be able to enjoy extra fast speeds and minimal buffering when downing an entire season of TV in a day.
We found that the Fire TV Stick 4K Max’s added processing power makes overall navigation a bit smoother, and we were able to reliably stream games from Amazon Luna with no major hiccups. The streaming stick also sports a useful picture-in-picture modes that works with Amazon’s Ring and Blink cameras, so you can monitor your kids room or front porch while you watch TV. And it’s got an Alexa voice remote, allowing you to tap into the near-endless voice commands that Amazon’s virtual assistant has to offer.
If you already own a Fire TV Stick 4K, you’re mainly just getting slightly smoother performance and Wi-Fi 6 if you jump to the Max. But it’s a worthy upgrade for those coming from a 1080p streaming stick, and especially for someone looking to get their first streaming device for a low price. And if you’re not rocking a 4K TV, the standard Fire TV Stick is available for just $20 right now.
