The Fire TV Stick 4K is available for pre-order on Amazon for £49.99 and will start shipping on 14 November. The remote further includes "multidirectional infrared technology", so it'll work with auxiliary devices.
Trade in whatever media streaming player you own and once it's received, Amazon will take $20 off the cost of a new Fire TV Stick 4K when you go to checkout.
The new Alexa Voice Remote brings with it the ability to control your TV and any AV equipment connected to it.
Another big change with the updated Fire TV Stick is in the remote - it finally includes a power button and volume controls, which have always been a top request from many users. Orders will begin shipping on October 31 in the United States and Canada.
Along with the new features, the Fire TV Stick 4K continues to provide consumers access to an array of channels, apps, Alexa skills, live TV options, music streaming services, and more. Amazon is also selling the new remote separately as it works with some of the other Fire TV products, so you can make use of the new power button and volume controls if you are willing to spend $29.99.

"Our existing remote has voice search has voice search capability and all of the Fire TV control on it but now we are adding the TV controls into the same remote". "It is a complete 4K solution our customers are looking for, all within a compact stick form factor".
