2nd-gen Fire TV Stick 4K is now available in India for the first time

When Amazon launched the 2nd-gen Fire TV Stick 4K late last year, it was available in nearly all locations globally where Fire TVs are sold, but one exception was India. That’s now no longer the case as the latest 4K Firestick is now available to preorder in India for the first time. Unfortunately, you still can’t buy the Fire TV Stick 4K Max or the Fire TV Cube in India, so the 2nd-gen Fire TV Stick 4K is the most powerful Fire TV you can buy in India. It’s available for ₹5,999, which is about $70 USD, and will be released on May 13th.

Walmart releases $50 Onn 4K Pro streamer w/ 32GB Storage, 3GB RAM, WiFi 6, hands-free voice control, and more

Walmart has released its all-new Onn 4K Pro streaming device running Google TV with impressive specs and an equally impressive price of $49.88. While the new streaming box isn’t listed yet on Walmart’s website, YouTuber SUPERDELL-TV was able to purchase it in-store and has revealed all of its specs. Initial leaks seemed to suggest the new “Pro” model would be positioned to take on Amazon’s Fire TV Stick 4K Max, leaving the existing Onn 4K box to compete with Amazon’s Fire TV Stick 4K and Google’s Chromecast 4K, but the real target seems to be the Fire TV Cube as the Onn 4K Pro doubles as a Google Home Mini smart speaker through its built-in speaker and far-filed microphones for hands-free voice control.

Walmart releases new 2023 Onn 1080p Streaming Stick running Google TV for just $14.88

Walmart has unceremoniously released its 2nd-generation Onn Streaming Stick with a staggeringly low price of $14.88. This new 1080p streamer is a replacement to the first Onn Streaming Stick which debuted in 2021 for just under $25 but quickly dropped to just under $15, which is where it spent most of its availability. While the Onn 4K Streaming Box for $19.88 released earlier this year is certainly the better buy for not much more money, the new Onn Streaming Stick is a worthy upgrade over the previous model.

Hisense now makes the most expensive Fire TV Smart TV — New 65″ & 75″ QLED 4K TVs Released

While compiling the list of all Fire TV Smart TVs on sale for Black Friday, I came across a set of new TVs that quietly snuck into the lineup recently. Hisense released its first Fire TV Smart TVs with the introduction of its 50-inch and 58-inch U6HF Series QLED 4K Fire TVs about a year ago. Without any fanfare, Hisense expanded that lineup with the release of new 65-inch and 75-inch models of the same TV a couple of months ago. Hisense’s Fire TVs are among the best-speced models available with Amazon’s TV operating system, so these new larger sizes take the crown as the most expensive Fire TVs yet. Read more ›

Costco now sells Fire TV Smart TVs for the first time — New TCL Q5 Series Fire TV Released

Fire TV models have been available for purchase outside of Amazon.com from numerous major retailers for many years but the big exceptions have always been Costco and Walmart, which have never sold any Fire TV devices, likely because Amazon is such a big rival in the retail space. While Walmart still doesn’t sell Fire TVs, apart from the ones listed by 3rd-party sellers on its open marketplace, Costco has changed its tune and now sells a Fire TV Smart TV for the first time. The brand-new TCL Q5 Series QLED Fire TV Smart TV has just debuted at Costco where it appears to be exclusively sold. Read more ›

Amazon announces new Fire TV Soundbar without any actual Fire TV capabilities

In addition to the new 2nd-gen Fire TV Stick 4K and 2nd-gen Fire TV Stick 4K Max, Amazon has also announced another addition to the Fire TV lineup in the form of the new Fire TV Soundbar. However, unlike the existing Fire TV Soundbars from Nebula and TCL, which have built-in Fire TV capabilities, this new Fire TV Soundbar from Amazon is just a dumb soundbar that connects to any TV and requires an external streaming media player.
