Amazon Fire TV Box Unveiled
 
 

The rumored Amazon streaming TV box is official. Meet the Amazon Fire TV.

Amazon unveiled the Amazon Fire TV. Fire TV is a small box that plugs into your HDTV for easy and instant access to Netflix, Prime Instant Video, Hulu Plus, WatchESPN, SHOWTIME, low-cost video rentals, and much more. Fire TV also brings photos, music, and games to the living room.

"Tiny box, huge specs, tons of content, incredible price—people are going to love Fire TV," said Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com Founder and CEO.


"Voice search that actually works means no more typing on an alphabet grid. Our exclusive new ASAP feature predicts the shows you’ll want to watch and gets them ready to stream instantly. And our open approach gives you not just Amazon Instant Video and Prime Instant Video, but also Netflix, Hulu Plus, and more. On Fire TV you can watch Alpha House and House of Cards." 

Amazon Fire TV sounds pretty awesome. The voice search is a killer feature if it is indeed working well. Apple TV, Roku and Google Chrome have a new very powerful competitor. Who will get pushed aside?  Watch below one of the first hands-on Fire TV reviews.

Features of the Amazon Fire TV include:

Voice search that actually works—Simply say the name of what you want to watch and start enjoying in seconds. Show me

Tiny box, huge specs—Fast quad-core processor, 2 GB of memory, dedicated GPU, plus 1080p HD video and Dolby Digital Plus surround sound

Easy to set up and use—Pre-registered to your Amazon account so you can enjoy favorite titles and personalized recommendations

Instant streaming—Exclusive new feature ASAP predicts what movies and TV episodes you’ll want to watch and buffers them for playback before you hit play

Perfect for parents—Amazon FreeTime lets you easily limit screen time and create personalized profiles just for kids (coming soon)

Great for gaming, too—Play blockbuster titles like Minecraft-Pocket Edition, The Walking Dead, and Monsters University, plus free games and Amazon exclusives. Paid games start from just 99 cents.
