Whereas, the Fire TV Stick 4K takes it a step further, delivering near enough the same functionality; though it can stream content in stunning 4K Ultra HD. Both the 4K model and the regular Fire TV Stick have Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant on board.

Designed to be used alongside a Fire TV Stick 4K and an HD antenna, the Fire TV Recast is a top-rated DVR, bundling support for over-the-air streaming, which lets you access your recorded content from anywhere on Earth using a smartphone or tablet.

Pair the Fire TV Recast with a Fire TV Stick 4K as part of the Prime Day sale, and you’ll be saving a cool $125. That’s almost on par with how much a year’s worth of Netflix will run you, so you’re essentially getting it thrown in for free (in terms of raw savings).
