One of the easiest ways to turn nearly any screen into a smart TV is with a streaming dongle. For Black Friday, Amazon’s Fire TV Stick 4K Max is on sale for just $40. That’s a 33 percent discount and the lowest price we’ve tracked so far for this model. The Fire TV Stick 4K Max was updated just this year, a fact the company announced during its Devices and Services event in September. The new stick supports Wi-Fi 6E and has a faster processor than is predecessor, bumped up to to 2.0 GHz. There’s also more storage for games and apps, up to 16GB from 8GB.
The streaming stick offers support for HDR, HDR10+, Dolby Atmos, Dolby Vision and more. It goes without saying that this thing also streams in 4K, as it’s right there in the name. You also get access to the company’s new Fire TV Ambient Experience, which displays a selection of art pieces, along with useful information like family calendars, reminders, local weather forecasts and more when the TV is in standby mode.
It’s the week of Black Friday, so this isn’t the only streaming stick Amazon’s selling at a discount. You can snag the standard Fire TV Stick for just $20, a savings of 50 percent. Despite being a relatively bare-bones product when compared to the Max, it still offers FHD streaming and ships with an Alexa voice remote.
And if you’d prefer a 4K streaming stick from Roku or Google’s Chromecast, those are on sale now too for $20 and $38, respectively.
