Earlier this month, we asked our readers to vote on their favorite streaming services and devices of the year. In the battle of best new streaming device introduced this year, the winner was Amazon’s Fire TV Stick 4K Max, with 27.1% of the votes.
The Fire TV Stick 4K Max was introduced in October, at a price of $54.99. The Fire TV Stick 4K Max supports 4K UHD, HDR, and HDR10+ streaming, as well as Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. It comes with the latest Alexa Voice Remote and is Amazon’s first streaming stick to offer Live View Picture-in-Picture. Like the Fire TV Omni Series and 4-Series, Alexa Home Theater is enabled, so you can wirelessly connect with Echo Studio or a pair of Echo (4th Gen) smart speakers for immersive sound, including multichannel Dolby audio formats.
