Amazon Fire TV (2017) review: Alexa serves at the 4K HDR party

 

What the Fire TV offers is a way to plug a potential hole in your living room setup and it does so in a fun way that's easier to understand than

Compact ; Easy to use ; Great user interface ; Alexa aids searching and connectivity

Ethernet connection costs extra ; No Dolby Vision support (if that matters) ; Adds little to existing smart TVs ; No Dolby Atmos content

We can't fault Fire TV's redesign. Moving to be a more compact package is always good news, although the need to buy that Ethernet accessory sets it at a minor disadvantage to Chromecast Ultra. However, the addition of the Alexa remote, a stable and...

Amazon Fire TV Stick review: super streamer now with added Alexa

 

It may be small in size but this streamer is kind of a big deal

Lots of content ; Alexa works pretty well ; Skills are useful in front of the TV

You really need to have Prime ; Needs a charger ; No 4K

Amazon Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote review: The best media player under £40?

 

For a penny shy of £40, you really can't go wrong with the 2017 Amazon Fire TV Stick. Alexa looks like she's on cue to rule the world... even without

Alexa support on a TV device ; Quick at accessing content ; Great contextual text and voice search ; Good picture quality ; Excellent app integration and availability ; Doesn't require Echo

No 4K or HDR ; Few TV USBs will power it so you need to use the adapter

There's no doubt that there are better, more powerful media streamers in set-top-box form out there – Amazon's own

Amazon Fire TV 4K (2017) review

 

The Amazon Fire TV 4K is a good way to stream your digital subscription services to your TV. Is it the best one for you though?

New Amazon Fire TV Stick (2017) review: Now only £30

 

Amazon's new Fire TV Stick fixes all its predecessor's problems, and it's currently only £30

Kodi compatible ; £40 is very cheap ; Netflix, Prime Instant Video, BBC iPlayer and many more ; Much faster than previous model ; Voice-controlled Alexa remote

Limited iPhone support ; Won't run from most TVs' USB power supplies

The first-generation Fire TV Stick was great, but lacking oomph. This new stick is more versatile, and thanks to its quad-core processor it’s super quick. Alexa is a great addition too, though not quite on the same level of intelligence as the Apple...

A sophisticated way to get smart functionality to your TV, with easy-to-use voice control

Amazon Fire TV Stick (2017) review

 

A brilliant, cheap streamer with added Alexa

Loads to watch ; Easy to set up ; Alexa works a treat

Cheaper alternatives are available ; Integrated search could be better

An ace streaming stick with a decent voice assistant. What’s not to like?

All-new Amazon Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote Review

 

Our review of the All-new Amazon Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote takes an in-depth look at Amazon's 2017 reboot of the original streaming stick.

Great price ; App selection growing ; Built-in Alexa ; App remote

Search could be better ; Basic performance

Amazon’s All-New Fire TV Stick with Alexa Remote isn’t an essential upgrade for existing Stick owners, as the performance is only marginally better and most of the new features are coming to the original Stick via updates.

Amazon Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote review

  (Rating Hidden)

It's been some time since the release of the groundbreaking, enormously popular original, but the Amazon Fire TV Stick has finally received an update. The big draw is the new Alexa Voice Remote, which lets you control the streamer with spoken commands....

Amazon Fire TV Stick 2

 

In late 2014, Amazon introduced the first Fire TV Stick as a cheaper streaming product. In late 2016, Amazon upgraded the Stick with more capable hardware and Alexa voice controls. And then the company started rolling out a revamped user interface...

Very affordable ; Lots of relevant apps ; New, better user interface ; Alexa has potential

Limited to 1080p – no 4K/HDR ; App loading times ; No proper app multi-tasking ; Hardware still a little slow

I have owned a Fire TV box since it launched but has rarely used it, mostly because I found the user interface clunky. Amazon has addressed this with a new user interface that has rolled out across all Fire TV devices. It now feels inviting, fun,...
