Reviewed in Canada on November 6, 2018
Update Review (Nov 20 2018): After 3 weeks I have noticed that if you walk away while your TV is on it goes into screensaver mode for a while. But then the fire stick turns itself off and leave your TV on but then when you go to restart it you have to unplug it and plug it back in otherwise it will never turn back on. The power button on the remote will not restart it. This is a pretty major flaw. Fire stick should time out but turn itself and the television off. Which is why this review has gone from five stars to three. Please see below for my initial review.

Original Review (Nov 1st 2018): I returned Google Chrome to buy this Amazon firetv 4K. I was one of the very very first people to get my hands on it in the City of Calgary. My friend had the former Amazon which is okay but the remote on this one is far far better. When Amazon says it's a smart remote it is a smart remote! It immediately talked to my 1080p LG television from 5 years ago so I only need to use this Amazon remote if I like to stream things like Netflix, Prime and other things like crave. It even turns my tv off and adjusts the volume! I'm most impressed. Super highly recommended. I have attached a picture of the box so you can see what it says if you want.

Please Note: Box is retail and was purchased from Bestbuy Canada.
