Amazon has taken care of the larger part of the living room with the new Fire TV Omni Series — the first-ever Amazon-built televisions — but it hasn’t forgotten about the smaller side. Enter the new Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max. As the name implies, it’s basically the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K — already the best Amazon Fire TV device for most people — just made even better. Mostly.
And perhaps most important is that it lands at a very approachable $55.
But new this time around — and this is the part that makes the Max the stick to get — is the addition of support for Wi-Fi 6 (aka 802.11ax, for those who refuse to follow the new naming convention). That means better networking, allowing for greater range and speed. And that means a better streaming experience for you, most likely. (Everyone’s home networking experience is going to be different of course.)
And for the gamers, the Fire TV Stick 4K Max will support Luna, Amazon’s cloud gaming service.
And that’s all enabled by upgraded internals. The Fire TV Stick 4K Max is 40% more powerful than the Fire TV Stick
And to go one further — the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max has earned Energy Star certification and sports Amazon’s Climate Pledge Friendly badge. Its packaging also is made up of 97% wood fiber-based materials from responsibility managed forests or recycled sources.
