Amazon have finally gotten around to shipping their cool-sounding Fire TV stick. This is a gadget that people have been pretty hot for for a while now, but what’s all the fuss about?
Basically, this is one of the easiest devices out there for getting access to thousands more TV shows, movies, songs and more. It’s only $39 and all you need to do is plug it into your TV’s HDMI port. Do that and you’re already all set up! You do need external power (via a USB port) and you also get a small remote with your usual media buttons. Alternatively you can control the device via your smartphone apps which provide extra control. Setup is easy basically and it’s also easy to interact with.
Fire TV Stick connects to your TV’s HDMI port. It’s an easy way to enjoy Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, Hulu Plus, YouTube.com, music, and much more
From there you then get access to a huge amount of content including all the regular services and much more. You even get voice search ala Xbox One which is pretty impressive for the price!
Compared with something like Chromecast you get a lot more features and the specs themselves are pretty impressive too. All in all, Fire TV is awesome so far and can only get better with firmware updates!
