Amazon's New Fire TV Stick is $40 and Comes With an Alexa-Equipped Remote

...

Amazon’s Fire TV Stick, a Chromecast-like device that isn’t just a dongle you Cast things to, is available for pre-order starting today as an “all-new” version that is not only 30% faster than the original, it also comes with an Alexa-equipped voice remote. That means you get the Fire TV experience in dongle form, hidden out of sight, and controlled by your voice. 

Previous versions of the Fire TV Stick that included a voice-controlled remote started at $49.99, so Amazon is reducing the price and improving the overall functionality and power of this streaming stick. Amazon has tossed in a quad-core processor, 802.11ac MIMO WiFi, and Alexa, to get you everything from your favorite shows, to news and weather, food delivery, shopping lists, and Uber rides.

As a bonus, if you buy the new Fire TV Stick and activate it before October 31, Amazon will give you up to $65 in free content from Sling TV, Hulu, and Amazon Video.
