In addition to the new Fire TV, Amazon has introduced a new bundle which groups together the existing Fire TV Stick with a brand new revised voice remote for $49.99. This new bundle is also available in the UK and Germany. This new remote is nearly identical to the one that comes with the new Fire TV. It connects to the Fire TV Stick via wifi direct, instead of bluetooth, for improved latency and battery life. With the existing Fire TV Stick gaining full Alexa capabilities soon, there’s more reason to want a voice remote as opposed to the old non-voice remote that previously came with the Fire TV Stick. The new bundle is available for pre-order today and will be released October 22nd.
