Amazon Fire TV overview

  • 1Description

The 2015 Amazon Fire TV offers detailed picture quality and access to a wide library of streaming content. You can enjoy content such as movies, TV shows, music, games, and more. You can also access premium services such as Netflix, Spotify, HBO GO, and Hulu Plus. This media player supports video resolutions up to 4K, and multi-channel surround sound, when paired with compatible equipment. For high-speed Internet connectivity, the Fire TV is equipped with high-speed, dual-band Wi-Fi and wired Ethernet. You can also wirelessly mirror and share content from your compatible smart devices. Using Alexa voice technology, you can intuitively navigate the Fire TV and search the web for additional information, such as the weather or sports scores, by simply speaking into the included remote control.

Fast and fluid content browsing is enabled by the device's quad-core processor. It also has 2GB of RAM for multi-tasking and 8GB of built-in storage. If additional storage is required, you can utilize the Fire TV's on-board microSD card slot that supports microSDXC cards up to 128GB. In addition to the aforementioned remote control, you can also download the free Fire TV remote app for compatible Fire, Android, and iOS smartphones and tablets. Furthermore, the Fire TV is designed to offer easy setup and operation.

4K and 1080p Viewing
The Fire TV delivers content in detailed 4K and 1080p resolutions and even supports High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC). HEVC is approximately twice as efficient at encoding video than traditional coding methods, which means less bandwidth is needed to deliver high-quality video streams, even if you don't have a 4K TV. For 4K content viewing, your 4K TV must support minimum HDCP requirements for protected content playback.
Processing Power
The Amazon Fire TV is designed to be fast and fluid thanks to its quad-core processor, which offers approximately 75% more processing power than the previous generation Amazon Fire TV. It is also equipped with dual-band 802.11ac Wi-FI, a dedicated graphics engine, 2 GB of memory, and expandable storage of up to 128GB (microSDXC card sold separately).
Alexa Cloud-Based Technology
Alexa, a cloud-based voice service, provides information, answers questions, plays music, checks sports scores, the weather, and more, instantly. Just ask Alexa using your Fire TV Voice Remote. Furthermore, the more you use Alexa the smarter it gets. Built in the cloud, Alexa adapts to your speech patterns, vocabulary, and personal preferences.

With instant access to Netflix, Amazon Video, HBO NOW, Hulu, and more, you can access a wide variety of content. You can rent movies directly from the Fire TV or watch live TV with the sold separately Sling TV, which includes ESPN, AMC, HGTV, TNT, Food Network, ABC Family, and more.
