Amazon has an alternative to Chromecast with a reduced price

The Fire TV Stick is Amazon’s answer to overshadowing Google’s Chromecast or Xiaomi’s Mi TV Stick. A rather complete HDMI key and above all more affordable than its pairs because it benefits from a promotion at Boulanger.

If we quickly compare it to a Chromecast, the Amazon Fire TV Stick is actually an Android TV box that does not speak its name. There is a dedicated OS and a remote control supporting voice control (here, Alexa is in charge). One difference, however: the Fire TV Stick is currently on sale at Boulanger.

The Amazon Fire TV Stick at a glance:

  • Full HD or 4K at 60 frames per second;
  • The new voice remote control with the Alexa assistant;
  • All Amazon services available directly on the TV.

Instead of the usual 39 euros, the Fire Stick TV with the new Alexa remote control is now available at 29 euros per baker.

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K

Capable of displaying an image in 4K at 60 FPS, this HDMI dongle also supports HDR 10, HDR10 + and Dolby Vision standards.

In use, however, the Fire TV Stick is closer to Android TV thanks to its integrated Fire OS operating system. This allows you to browse through the menus, open the Amazon App Store to download various applications (Molotov, Spotify, Netflix, Twitch and many others), or easily access home services, such as Prime Video or Amazon Music.

The new remote control comes with the Alexa assistant, which allows you to control the Fire TV Stick only with your voice.
