Available today, Amazon has a brand new Fire TV Stick Basic Edition, which opens up the Fire Stick to over 100 new countries! Read the details below and buy one today.
Available to buy today, the Amazon has announced the Fire TV Stick Basic Edition Kodi Box. Users who live in the United States won’t be that impressed: The Basic Edition does not come with Alexa support and the remote has been simplified to remove the Alexa button. As well, the device costs $49.99, $10 more than the standard Fire TV Stick does. However, Amazon is also shipping the device free everywhere, which negates the price increase for most people.
The reason for Amazon not including Alexa in its Basic Edition most likely has to do with geo restrictions and lack of functionality worldwide. Alexa can be used in the USA to order Amazon products and look up geo-specific information.
Where the Fire TV Stick Basic Edition wins is the fact that it is now available to ship to over 100 countries. That means that users in Canada, UK, Australia, etc can now get the Fire TV Stick in their hands.
The basic edition specs are the exact same as the old Fire TV Stick. The box comes with a 1.3GHz processor and 1GB of RAM.
