Experience the difference with 4K Ultra HD

Amazon Fire TV now brings you 4K Ultra-High-Definition streaming capability, giving you a best-in-class television experience with true-to-life picture quality when used with compatible 4K Ultra HDTVs – something Apple TV and Chromecast don’t support.

Enjoy your favourite content in 4K Ultra HD

Enjoy hundreds of TV episodes and movies in 4K Ultra HD on your Amazon Fire TV, the largest selection of any streaming media player. Classic movies such as The Way We Were, critically acclaimed TV shows such as Orphan Black, blockbuster movies such as Captain Philips, Fury and more. Titles are being added all the time on Amazon Video. Watch Amazon Originals series such as Transparent, Bosch, Tumble Leafand more. Stream Netflix favourites including House of Cards in Ultra HD.



  • Amazon Fire TV, now 4K Ultra HD compatible. Enjoy movies and TV episodes in stunning 4K Ultra HD with your compatible 4K UHD TV. See compatibility details below.
  • No 4K UHD TV? No problem. Amazon Fire TV lets you stream thousands of titles in high definition, up to 1080p.
  • Tens of thousands of TV episodes and movies, from Amazon Video, Netflix, BBC iPlayer, ITV and more, plus games, music and apps.
  • Now 75% more processing power, a dedicated graphics engine, better Wi-Fi support and 2GB of memory.
  • Say it. Watch it. Simply speak into your voice remote to find TV shows, movies and games.
  • No more buffering – ASAP learns what Amazon movies and TV episodes you like and buffers them for playback so they start right away.
  • Great for gaming with a quad-core processor and dedicated Imagination GX6250 graphics engine. Add to the fun with optional game controllers.
  • Amazon Prime members get unlimited access to Prime Video, including original programming such as Transparent, plus two million songs with Prime Music.

4K support means you can hook up the Fire TV to your 4K TV, and you can watch videos in Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) at up to 30fps. In order for this to work you will need a compatible TV with an HDMI 2.0 port which supports HDCP 2.2

One of the main reasons for buying the new Fire TV is to get Amazon and Netflix's 4K content on your TV. Amazon doesn't charge extra for watching 4K content, but Netflix does.

The Fire TV also offers plenty of other content including Spotify, BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4 and Demand 5. For some people, this makes it a better choice than the new Apple TV (which doesn't support 4K) as the Fire TV similarly allows you to install apps and play games using the bundled remote or the optional game controller (which costs £35). However, we'll get to the games later.

Amazon's Alexa is also coming to the Fire TV via a free software update. We expect the the update to roll out in the UK pretty soon because – at last – Amazon's Echo device is on sale in the UK.  Here are some of the benefits the new update brings (there are many more – these are just the latest highlights):

  • Alexa voice control for Amazon Video. You can now say “skip ahead 2 minutes” to jump past the opening credits. Miss something because you were interrupted? Just try “rewind 30 seconds.” Ready for the next episode? Just say “next.”
  • Universal Search expanded to over 75 apps and channels.
  • Custom content that’s easy to find. For example Netflix subscribers will see personalised recommendations in custom rows on the Fire TV home page. These will appear in the “coming months”.
  • Sports updates. Using Alexa, just say “give me my sports update” to see the latest scores. You can select your favourite teams in the Alexa app, either using a web browser or your Fire tablet, iOS or Android device.
