Amazon FireTV Stick 4K MAX

The new FireTV Stick 4K Max is the first version with 2 GB ram making this player both more stable and more durable. The player is optimal for digital signage solutions with simple content like photos, video, social media plugins, etc. In addition, the player supports 4K, WIFI 6, and auto-launch.

Compared to older models and even the 4K model the player seems to be way more powerful and the extra memory gives you a stable and high-quality player from Amazon. The player is sold at $35 on Amazon.com.

What does the manufacturer say about the FireTV Stick 4K Max?

Our most powerful streaming stick – 40% more powerful than FireTV Stick 4K, with faster app starts and more fluid navigation. Support for next-gen Wi-Fi 6 – Enjoy smoother 4K streaming across multiple Wi-Fi 6 devices. Alexa Voice Remote – Search and launch content with your voice. Get to favorite apps quickly with preset buttons. Control power and volume with one remote.

To benefit from Wi-Fi 6, you’ll need a Wi-Fi 6-compatible router (like the eero 6), but FireTV Stick 4K Max is also compatible with earlier wifi routers. For Alexa Home Theater audio, you’ll need to pair with compatible Echo speakers. Learn more about device compatibility.

Compatible with HD TVs and 4K UHD TVs. 4K streaming requires 4K UHD TV and available 4K content.
