Amazon announced and began accepting pre-orders for the Fire TV Stick in Germany and the UK last month with an official release date of April 15th. AFTVnews reader Kai in Germany just let us know that his Fire TV Stick has already shipped. According to the estimated delivery date given by Amazon, his device is expected to arrive 2 days ahead of the official release. Amazon may have learned a thing or two from the Fire TV Stick’s US release and prepared for the expected high demand. You can chalk it up to foresight or just German efficiency. Either way, international Fire TV Stick customers may find an early surprise in their mailbox come next week.
Looks like not only have some Fire TV Sticks already shipped, but several people have let me know that they’ve already received their Fire TV Sticks in Germany.
