The company describes the newest set-top box as a "hands-free" Alexa experience, one that also offers support for 4K HDR content, HDMI CEC controls, voice control, Dolby Atmos support, and more. Unlike other voice-command entertainment options such as Comcast's Xfinity X1 platform and Apple TV, which require you to speak directly into a remote control to change channels or search for specific programs, your voice is the only device needed to turn on and activate the Fire TV Cube. Get over 500,000 movies and TV episodes from Netflix, Prime Video, Hulu, HBO, SHOWTIME, NBC, and more.
The Fire TV Cube price is $119.99 and is now available for pre-order, shipping from 21 June.
Amazon today announced the newest addition to the Fire TV family: the Amazon Fire TV Cube. Plus, for a limited time, customers can pre-order Fire TV Cube and Amazon Cloud Cam together for $199.98 - a $40 savings.
Amazon adds that Alexa is "always getting smarter" so it's bound to be able to do more in time. As such, it is unlikely that we will see this smart speaker priced this low again until Amazon Prime Day.
Amazon Fire TV Cube features a simple, guided setup for Alexa voice control of your devices, giving you easy access to the vast catalog of content now available on Fire TV; including tens of thousands of channels, apps, and Alexa skills, as well as over 500,000 movies and TV episodes and thousands of 4K Ultra HD and HDR titles. However, the Fire TV Cube doesn't have all the smart capabilities as an Echo speaker, as it can't call anybody and it can't sync with other Bluetooth speakers.
Fire TV Cube, unveiled Thursday morning, is a small box created to sit next to TV sets, enabling hands-free controls of the television and providing many - but not all - of the features available in the company's Alexa-enabled Echo smart speakers.
Google's Assistant software is also able to answer follow-up questions on the same topic, in a near-conversation style, but Echo as yet can not. It sports eight far-field microphones and puts Alexa in command of your home entertainment center.
Because it's an Echo device, the Echo Look also has Amazon's Alexa assistant built-in. "And, it's just the beginning". Then imagine that control plugged into your TV so you can control everything plugged in there with your voice as well.
