Amazon Announces Chromecast-Fighting Fire TV Set Top Box Dylan Duarte April 2, 2014 Move over Roku (and everything that is like a Roku)! Amazon has launched the Fire TV, their innocent little set-top box that’s willing and capable of dominating your living room entertainment. The box packs a quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM, almost quadrupuling the 512MB of RAM that the Roku 3, Apple TV, and Google Chromecast use. It sports the standard connections: HDMI, optical audio, Ethernet, and USB. It will run Android and HTML and can be operated both by remote and voice commands. In addition to Amazon Prime streaming, you’ll see content from Netflix, YouTube, Vimeo, Hulu, MLB.tv, and the NBA, among others. And then, there’s the Fire Game Controller, which will retail for $39.99 and comes with 1000 Amazon Coins to put towards games. That’s right. It’s a gaming “console” too. The Fire TV box itself can be had for $99. There’s no shortage of streaming options out there, but Fire TV has the potential to rise to the top. via ThinkComputers Share This With The World!
