Amazon Now Includes an Alexa Remote with the Fire TV Stick

If you’ve been eyeing up Amazon’s Fire TV Stick and have been meanign to buy one, now’s the time to do so. The company has announced it will now include its Alexa-enabled voice remote with every purchase of the Fire TV Stick. Before, when you bought the $39.99 Fire TV, you got a basic Amazon remote included in the box and had to pay $29.99 extra for an Alexa remote. Now, though, the upgraded controller comes in the box, which is very nice.

Unfortunately, if you already have a Fire TV Stick, you’ll still have to shell out $30 for the Alexa remote. Luckily, at the time of writing this article, it’s on sale for $14.99. If you have yet to snag a Fire TV Stick, however, you’ll be in for a treat.

Today’s news means that every Fire TV now comes with an Alexa voice remote, including the Fire TV Stick 4K and Fire TV Cube.
