Amazon is now shipping its new $69 Fire TV streaming device that supports 4K and HDR video.
The company first announced the details of the Fire TV device in September, shortly after Apple introduced a new Apple TV device that can also display 4K video with HDR (High Dynamic Range.)
However, Apple’s new streaming device starts at $179, a whopping $110 more than the new Fire TV.
In addition to the 4K and HDR support, the new Fire TV offers an ‘Alexa’ voice remote that enables you to find, launch and control content with verbal commands.
Amazon is now selling the new Fire TV separately for $69, or as a $74 bundle with an indoor high-def antenna.
