Teased over the past few weeks with tidbits of technology, Amazon has finally taken the lid off of its venture into modern television. True, Fire TV draws elements from competitive platforms, yet it also delivers a unique watching experience that combines the best of its rivals. Users can expect service from Hulu, Netflix, Prime Instant Video, Watch ESPN, and more to comprise a library of over 200,000 movies and TV shows, alongside game and low-cost rentals for newer titles. All this is hosted in a small box that seamlessly connects with HDTVs, boasting 2GB of built-in memory, 1080p HD video and Dolby Digital Plus surround sound internally. Key features include a voice-activated remote that recognizes your commands, streamlining the watching experience, as well as connectivity with tablets coming in the future. With a myriad features loaded into a compact package and prices starting reasonably at $99.95, Amazon looks truly poised for an internet TV takeover. Learn more about Fire TV and pick up yours here.
