OK, it's not a 'deal' but finally after what seems like forever since it came out in the USA the all new more powerful FireTV stick with full Alexa comes to Amazon UK!

It's sometimes referred to as the Fire TV Stick '2' by reviewers and bloggers when it came out in the USA last year as it's the 2nd generation of the FireTV stick but it's not actually called that by Amazon, they just call it the "all new Fire TV stick".

Pre-order now, says launching on April 6th but that might change and become earlier.

I'll be getting one or two of them because after using the FireTV 2 (box) I sometimes find my original FireTV stick slow and laggy. The new stick will be somewhat closer to the experience on the Fire TV 2 box.

It's not 4K but that's not important to me as I'm no longer blessed with 20:20 vision and never sit close enough to the TV to be able to tell the difference between HD and 4K anyway! Also, here in Cyprus, 4K normally refers to the average monthly salary of civil servants, or the average annual salary of someone working in the private sector!

you got a link to that deal. I cant see it posted anywhere

Didn't know there was a Fire stick 2! Heat from me!

I think the title should be changed from "All New Fire TV Stick 2" to "All-New Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote - Pre-Order £39.99 @ Amazon"

There isn't a Fire TV Stick 2. Just going by what is on the actual product page so thought the title could be adjusted.

about time, it's been in the states for 12m

Not a deal and no 4k output

Can't see that this is a major leap forward from the current FireTV Stick!

Thought these were still running 1GB of ram,suppose a faster chipset might make a slight difference,

As far as I understand it's a newer processor, supports AC networks and x265 decoding natively for up to 1080p videos. I will be getting one or two to replace my current sticks but only when there they have an offer on.

Really think in 2017 this should be including 4K support by now, otherwise very little reason to buy it over the old version IMHO. Yes, I know not many have 4K sets but no harm in being future proofed and as all 4K devices are fully backwards compatible with 1080P sets thanks to HDMI, you lose nothing by using a 4K device on a 1080P set.

I used to have the fire TV stick and found it fine, didn't seem slow to me, though I wasn't doing anything demanding on it. upgraded to the fire TV box, which can do 4K despite being going on for two years old!, which makes this not supporting it look even worse....

Does it come pre-loaded with Kodi?

​I got 2 from the states on black Friday when they were $25 it's quicker to move around the amazon home screen menu and they've changed the interface of the home screen but I don't find any difference in the actual video playback.

Amazon don't even have Kodi on there store anymore lol. I installed it that long ago I can't even have it on my apps when side loaded.
I'll be all over this new stick when its out, shame its gone up a fiver but does have the newer remote whats cool if you have prime, but then again you could install the app on your phone for free and that lets you voice command

just a note to people buying - if you use the prime now app they give £5 off most off the time for a £20 spend - obviously you have to order nearer the time.

if you want 4k get the box. If this was 4k it would be more expensive and people who don't care for 4k wouldn't buy it.

if you want 4k, buy the proper box.......

​What's it like streaming x265 over a local network?

Yea.. RRP on something that will be readily available. No deal here.

Just surprised it's taking so long for this version to release here.

Proper box doesn't have HDR, which IMO is more important than 4k.
