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.
