Amazon Fire TV

Being released as a smaller version of their Amazon Fire TV in 2014, the Amazon Fire Stick is a small HDMI based device plugged directly into your TV without the need for any cables. With the newest generation of the device supporting 4K, it naturally is the best device to access the Amazon Prime Instant Video service.


Not only does it support their own Prime content, but it also gives you the ability to stream Netflix, HBO GO, and many other subscription based services.

Fire TV: Everything You Need to Know

The original Amazon Fire TV box was introduced in 2014. Since then an upgraded 2nd generation Fire TV has been released with improved wireless connectivity, sharper images, and better reception quality. In addition to an improved box, Amazon released 2 generations of the smaller (1.1 oz), more convenient, Fire TV Stick.

Although it’s smaller, there is no sacrifice in quality. The Gen 2 Fire TV sticks now include enhanced wireless connectivity, a faster processing chipset, Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, advanced graphics cards, and improved voice search support powered by Alexa. Internal memory is still set at 1GB with 8GB. It remains unlikely that Amazon will increase the available storage, especially given Amazon’s increasing emphasis on cloud storage.

All you need is a basic Amazon account to start streaming the best videos, channels, games and apps. You can use any of the available online video streaming apps on the Amazon Store to watch Fire TV channels.
