Amazon may have just discontinued the Fire TV Stick with Voice Remote. The product page now says the bundle is “currently unavailable” and that they “don’t know when or if this item will be back in stock.” Fire TV devices have become unavailable in the past, only to return to stock after a short hiatus, so that’s not definitive proof the voice bundle has been discontinued. However, it’s a bit odd that the option for the voice bundle no longer appears on the regular Fire TV Stick’s product page. More so, when viewing the Fire TV Stick with Voice Remote product page, the family of products at the top are now Fire tablets instead of the Fire TV line of devices, like it used to show. In a sense, this implies the Fire TV Stick with Voice Remote is no longer a part of the Fire TV family of devices.
Amazon just launched a new promotion in the UK where they’re offering a deep discount on the Fire TV Stick for new Prime members. As clocks points out in the comments, it’s odd that Amazon is running a new promotion on a product we expect to be replaced soon. I’m starting to believe that the existing Fire TV Stick will stick around another year as the lowest priced device in the Fire TV lineup, while a new Fire TV Stick 2 is released to replace the voice remote bundle. It would slot in nicely between the Fire TV Stick and the Fire TV box as the middle-ground device for those that want a bit more power than the Fire TV Stick, but don’t need something like the Fire TV box. This would also explain why, out of all the current Fire TV devices, the supply of original Fire TV Sticks has been relatively stable and continues to quickly come back into stock after big sales.
