Amazon Fire Streaming Box

The latest update boasts an Apple TV-beating 4K Ultra HD support and comes with its maker’s own digital voice assistant.

Description and Setup

The Fire TV is a small black box – rectangular in shape. The design is not really different from that of its predecessor. It is made to give users access to hundreds of thousands movies and TV shows at online sources, direct from compatible TV sets.

All a TV needs to be compatible is an HDMI port. Connect the Fire TV to the TV via an HDMI cable. Then connect it to a power source via the included power adapter. You also require a fast network, which you can access via a Wi-Fi hotspot or Ethernet.

Amazon is also talking about the gaming capability of the box, which is quite easy to set up. Amazon Fire TV is pre-registered to a buyer’s account, with setup completed in just few minutes. The interface is designed to be easy to use.

4K Ultra-HD Support

When the latest Apple TV was unveiled a little over a week ago, many people were disappointed that the box did not support 4K content. The new Amazon Fire TV beats its rival in this regard with support for stunning 4K movies and TV shows.

You will be able to enjoy 4K UHD streaming from Amazon Prime Instant Video and Netflix, significantly expanding your entertainment options. The experience is enhanced with Dolby Audio support. But you are going to need a fast broadband connection and a 4K UHD-enabled TV set with HDCP 2.2 to enjoy 4K streaming.

Performance and OS

Amazon Fire TV is built to deliver competition-beating performance, according to its maker. It is equipped with a quad-core MediaTek processor and a dedicated graphics processor.

The box delivers 75% better performance that supposedly rivals the A8 chip-driven Apple TV and up to five times better performance than latest Roku set-top boxes. The new Fire TV will be powered by its maker’s latest Fire OS 5 software.

Other Features

The streaming media player features Amazon’s own personal assistant Alexa, which allows you find movies, TV shows, apps, sport scores and weather information by speaking into the remote.

It has inbuilt storage capacity of 8 GB, expandable via a microSD card slot. Amazon Fire TV boasts High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) support for better compression of Full HD content for those with slow connections.
