Amazon has stepped out of the shadows when it comes to media devices with their new Amazon Fire TV Streaming service. This device is one of the most efficient media streamers with tons of features right out of the box.
With the added advantage of games, Amazon Fire TV not only can stream media to your TV, but also allows you to play games on your TV. It is the easiest way to watch Netflix, HBO Go, and YouTube and play hundreds of games directly on your TV.
Why Consider This Over Other Media Streamers?
Amazon Fire TV offers features that easily exceed Chrome cast, Apple TV, or any other device for streaming media that is available. For transmission of rich media features that allow you to play games out of the box, Amazon Fire TV is a complete media device for streaming. Although the price is a little on the high end, it fully justifies the price tag.
Some of the features for this device is that it has hundreds of television series, movies, over 500 games, voice search and many popular online streaming services. The price originally was $99 but has since dropped and it is only available for you to buy on Amazon.com.
Specs of the Fire TV Stick
The Fire Stick has its own ecosystem and aims to slaughter the king of search (Google), which is proven from what they are offering, the fire TV stick has: 8 GB of storage instead of 2 GB that Google has, and has twice the RAM (1 GB) and also supports standard superior WiFi to improve the quality of video transmission.
A device with twice the speed and memory should make Google a little nervous, they will really have to put everything they can into the next version of Google Chrome cast, a release that was suggested by the vice president of the Google product recently.
Dual Core Processor in the Amazon Fire TV Stick
Amazon tops the device off with a dual-core processor and a remote control. This last element may be useful, for example, to move songs or photos. Some will not see the humor and will add more competition to the busy lounge collection of controls, so it will be used to handle the application for Android and Apple (the latter coming soon).
Amazon Promotes Fire TV Stick
As with all products of the company, the unit is designed to consume its product catalog easily, so buyers are given a month of unlimited content offered by Amazon Prime. But keep in mind that the Fire Stick will be launched first in the US, so other countries will have to wait a while to enjoy it, which is how it was with the Chrome cast as well. The key point in favor of the device is that it costs $39, slightly more than its competitor.
How Big Is the Box?
The Amazon Fire stick is actually not even a box, it is similar to a USB plugin and you simply plug it into the HDMI port in your television. It is easier this way because there are no long wires that can get tangled or things like that.
It is also beneficial for the fact that you don’t have to find a place to put the box if you have a complex set up or wiring system. It is as simple as plugging it in, and turning it on. That’s what can really make this a good product for those who don’t want to be bothered with a long complex set up.
Why Buy the Amazon Fire TV Stick?
Having used this product personally, I can say that there are many reasons to purchase this product. The main one being, is really how simple it is to use, it provides the main streaming channels such as Netflix, Hutu plus and of course, Amazon Prime. It really makes having Amazon Prime much more enjoyable as well for those that have it.
The price for this product is very good for what it offers, compared to others. This product really is worth the money that you put into it, it is extremely easy to use, even those who are not very good with technology can easily pick this platform up and begin watching their favorite TV shows or movies.
