Amazon Fire TV on sale for $84Buy Now
$84 available from amazon.com
While we wouldn’t wish the Amazon Fire Phone on any of our readers, the Fire TV is a completely different matter. The voice search capabilities are excellent and the UI is straightforward and fast.
It has access to all major streaming services and has been adding news apps since launch. Naturally there is a slight preference for Amazon services, but it isn’t so heavy handed as to make it an issue. If you are already a Prime subscriber the Fire TV is even more compelling as the “free” Amazon Video is building an increasingly respectable lineup of movies, TV shows and Amazon originals.
There is also the option to turn the Fire TV into a gaming machine with the Amazon Fire Game Controller.
All in all it is a solid package that competes strongly with the other streaming boxes out there like the Roku 3 and at $84 it is a screaming deal.
