I lost my fire stick remote and I would like to purchase a new one. The only issue is the price of a new one is almost the price of a whole new fire stick.
Other then the phone app does anyone know of a cheaper remote that will work with the fire stick? Does it work with any universal remotes? I don't use the Alexa voice feature at all.
Amazon has wonderful Help pages.
Here's one titled Remotes Compatible with Fire TV Devices
I'm being extremely clever up here and there's no one standing around looking impressed. What's the point in having you all? - Dr Who
The remote without Alexa is here (backordered, unfortunately) - http://amazon.com/Replacement-Remote-Amazon-Fire-Stick/dp/B00LORGAG6
You might check ebay.
Will remotes without Alexa still work with the fire stick?
CatChat, Thank you for your suggestion. I saw that page but it's vague on which models of remotes.
This is the remote I just ordered:
Thank you both for your help.
Yes the 1st generation remote works with both the 1st and 2nd generation firesticks.
If you have a smart phone you can download the firetv remote app from your app store. I have three that were stolen, because the thief thought it would deter my ability to watch my fire sticks. I have been using my phone for over a year.
The OP mentioned wanting a remote "other [than] the phone app".
