Amazon Fire TV is Company’s Streaming, Gaming Device

/ Apr 3rd, 2014 No Comments

Amazon Fire TV

Amazon unveiled the Amazon Fire TV, the company’s own entertainment streaming device that will compete with media boxes such as Roku and Apple TV.

The small, black Internet-connected device will run apps such as Amazon Instant Video, Netflix, Hulu and Watch ESPN.

The Fire TV will also run video games, including Amazon Game Studios-developed Sev Zero. Other titles expected to be available to play on the Fire TV by next month include Minecraft, The Walking Dead and NBA 2K14. Amazon acquired developer Double Helix, the makers of 2013’s Killer Instinct reboot, earlier this year.

[adsense250itp]A game controller for the Fire TV can be purchased alongside the device, but it will also be compatible with Bluetooth controllers already on the market.

Inside the compact box, the Fire TV is packed with a quad-core processor, 2 GB of RAM and a dedicated graphics card. It delivers 1080p HD video with Dolby Digital Plus Surround Sound. The device has HDMI and optical-out ports and can be connected to the Internet via WiFi or an Ethernet port.

The device also comes with a remote with a built-in microphone for voice search. While watching content on the device, the Fire TV can predict and pre-load more content so users can skip the buffering stage.

The Amazon Fire TV is available on Amazon now at a price of $99. The game controller sells as an additional add-on for $39.99.
