However, the USA version comes with an Alexa remote that can operate with voice commands, while the Basic Edition just has a basic remote. Fire TV Basic Edition, as the product is officially called, comes without access to the company's Alexa voice assistant.

Amazon might have announced an avalanche of devices a few weeks ago, but notably absent was any upgrade to its Fire TV Stick. It's a small dongle that plugs directly into an HDMI port on your TV or monitor, or even an HDMI switch if you'd like to easily move between sources.

The Fire TV Stick Basic Edition provides customers with access to popular content from multiple providers, including Amazon Prime Video and Netflix.

The Fire TV Stick Basic Edition comes equipped with a quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage for all of your apps/games, and 802.11ac Wi-Fi. Amazon also recently introduced a new Fire TV, which supports 4K Ultra HD and High Dynamic Range content.

Amazon's Prime Video service is available in 200 countries around the world as of last December. You can choose from among the following: English, Italian, French, German, Brazilian, Spanish, or Portuguese. "This makes streaming content from apps like Prime Video fast and easy and we can't wait to hear what customers think".

After all, audio and video streaming is rapidly taking off around the world, not just in the USA and a couple of other key Western markets.

Starting today, Amazon is making its new Fire TV Stick Basic Edition available for purchase in more than 100 countries and territories around the world including Australia, New Zealand, Canada, France, Italy, and Spain. Another thing to point out here is that Amazon is advertising the Basic Edition as having a $49.99 price tag, but its pricing may still vary depending on the customer's location.

"The All-New Fire 7 Kids Edition Tablet, 7" Display with 16 GB is $69.99 (30% off) today at Amazon!
