Amazon has given us many cool products. It began as an online shop, they created the first E-reader, the Kindle, and now they announced their new box for streaming TV shows, photos, games and music right to your TV. Amazon Fire TV is a black device that is very light and portable.
Once you have set up the Fire TV, it will bring you to the main menu with the latest movies and television releases, latest music apps and games. The Fire TV runs on an Android system and features many cool apps like Pandora, Netflix, Hulu Plus, Crackle and many more. Unfortunately, it doesn’t include HBO Go in their list of channels but can buy it or rent it separately from the main menu.
Amazon Fire TV is a little black box that runs on a quad-core processor and a GPU. It comes with 2GB of RAM, a Wi-Fi connectivity that is a Mimo dual band and it supports a 1080p streaming. It features a Dolby digital surround and a thin, black remote control that works with Bluetooth. Another cool feature about the Amazon Fire TV is that it has a voice search and you can also stream photos from your phone directly into your TV. The X-Ray feature shows info on your tablet about the movies you are watching, as you’re watching it. This super feature was already available on their Kindle Fire tablet.
You feel like karaoke? Amazon Fire TV gives you that. It displays the lyrics to your favorite songs on your TV screen so you can sing your heart out without being embarrassed in the comfort of your living room.
