Quick Start Guide
Warranty and Service Fire TV Stick is sold with a worldwide limited warranty of one year provided by the manufacturer.

Priced at Rs.4000 (500cash back for prime customers) it’s little costlier in comparison to it’s US counter part where it’s priced $40/ Rs.2600. Maybe amazon got to earn more their via it’s prime subscription which costs $100/Rs/6500+ for USA in comparison to meager Rs.499/999 here in India. Kind of cross subsidy model.

Chromecast being it’s close rival is priced at Rs.3499 in India though chromecast is without remote. Also for prime customers it is same as chromecast at Rs.3499. Prime subscription is preferred if buying fire stick.
