What’s the difference between Fire TV Stick models?
There are five different models in the Fire TV line-up: Fire TV Stick Lite, Fire TV Stick, Fire TV Stick 4K, Fire TV Stick 4K Max, and Fire TV Cube. There’s a long list of differences between these models, but all five also have a lot in common. First up, all Fire TV gadgets offer access to the same selection of streaming services, games and apps.
That means you’ll be able to watch Netflix, Disney+, BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, BritBox, Apple TV+, Paramount+, NOW (formerly NOW TV), YouTube, StarzPlay, Prime Video (obviously), and many more. You’ll also be able to access a number of games, like Crossy Road and Pac-Man, which are available on the Fire TV OS software.
Alexa can be used to control smart lightbulbs and thermostats, or check video doorbells – without moving from the comfort of the sofa
Every Fire TV model in the line-up boasts Alexa support too. The talkative AI helper can be used to search for new apps, streaming services, actors or directors – saving you from the hassle of using the keypad on the remote and the on-screen keyboard to type out a request.
Not only that, but Alexa can also be used to answer general knowledge questions, like the year that a movie was released, the height of the Eiffel Tower, or a quick summary of the latest headlines and weather forecast.
How the complete Fire TV line-up compares
You can also control smart home kit – from connected lightbulbs, to thermostats – using the voice assistant too. Fire TV Cube is the only model with hands-free Alexa support, so you won’t need to hunt down the back of the sofa to find your remote, while every other Fire TV in the line-up has a dedicated Alexa button on the remote that you’ll need to hold down to issue a request to the powerful AI assistant.
The biggest differentiator between Fire TV models is the picture quality available when watching your favourite boxsets or Hollywood blockbusters. The affordable Fire TV Stick Lite tops out at 1080p High Definition (regardless of whether you’re paying extra for a Netflix subscription that offers 4K Ultra HD streaming …this is a limitation of the hardware) so you’ll need to get the Fire TV Stick 4K, Fire TV Stick 4K Max, or Fire TV Cube to watch in 4K and Dolby Vision.
