Amazon Fire TV
Amazon has just released the Fire TV, the company’s Apple TV, Google Chromecast and Roku competitor. In short, it’s a $99 Android based set-top box for streaming movies and TV shows as well as playing games with the dedicated Fire Game Controller (sold separately for $ 40). The Fire TV has integrated voice search and being an Amazon product, extra care has been taken in order to make the company’s Prime Instant Video streaming service run smoothly on the device. The other usual suspects such as YouTube, Hulu and Netflix are also available. HBO Go is however currently missing from the lineup.
