Alexa, the smart voice assistant of the Amazon Fire TV can be controlled with your voice. What is nice about this is you don’t need to purchase separate remote controls. You can control all of your devices from your FireTV including DVRs, televisions and surround sound speakers with voice commands. This means no more searching for the remote control. Instead it is just a matter of saying “Alexa” and you are ready to go.
The Amazon FireTV will support the new fourth-generation DVR technology, which has the same bandwidth and capacity as the older generations but is more efficient. It also includes support for high definition video recording at up to two hours per digital TV channel. A high definition recorder can be connected to your television through FireWire or HDMI connections. The alexa voice remote can also be used with FireWire cameras and microphones so that you can place the camera on your person and record your own actions.
Amazon FireTV does not only let you watch your favourite movies and television programs through the FireWire connection or HDMI port. Now you can watch your favourite videos in High Definition picture quality. In fact, it has many features that allow you to view your favourite digital media through your television. There are many great features available on the Amazon FireTV including: Amazon Instant Video, Audience, FlipShare, and My Amazon. All of these features together provide an all-in-one device for your entertainment needs.
The all-new Amazon FireTV Stick is not only a smart television device but also an amazing dongle. The stick has a built-in DVR, so that you can record live events or just watch them on your computer. The amazing benefits of this device is that it is an all in one solution that works as a: camcorder, player, and digital media player all in one. It is not only a high definition player or camcorder but also works as a smart television with over 160 zones of color. It can connect to Amazon’s free wi-fi hotspot as well as connect to any wireless source.
The new Amazon FireTV Stick can also be controlled with your voice using FireTV remote control or through your touch screen. You can surf the internet, watch your favorite TV shows, movies, and sports games while watching your favorite videos on the big screen. The innovative Amazon FireTV remote control lets you quickly navigate through menu choices and launch all kinds of applications such as Amazon Instant Video, Audience, FlipShare, and My Amazon. The all-in-one smart television device offers an outstanding value compared to other systems on the market today.
When shopping for an affordable and powerful device like the Amazon FireTV, you should consider whether you will be purchasing it as a stand-alone unit or as part of a package including a surround sound system and video game console. The standalone FireTV Stick is a great option for consumers who prefer to have control over their TV viewing. As opposed to the first generation remote that was used with the Amazon FireTV, the second generation stick is a little smaller and easier to use. For the first generation devices, the remote could become stuck in between buttons and it became almost impossible to navigate around the screen using your voice. The new line solves all these issues.
The second-generation Amazon FireTV Stick is also a great choice for consumers who enjoy watching their favorite videos on the big screen without having to sit down and use the remote. If you need to play a YouTube video, answer a call, or surf the web, simply wave your hand over the directional buttons on the device and say “play” to start playing the media source. While some consumers may find that controlling the device with your voice commands is more comfortable, there are many other benefits as well. If you are someone who enjoys watching your favorite movies and shows while enjoying superior picture and sound quality, the Amazon FireTV Stick is an excellent choice.
One of the best elements about the Amazon FireTV is its compatibility with third-party home entertainment accessories, such as home theatre systems, surround sound systems, video game consoles, and audio products. There are many options available when buying a smart television. However, the Amazon FireTV is the perfect product for those who like to have complete control over how they watch their TV. With the Amazon FireTV Stick, you can easily turn on the TV when you’re ready to watch your favourite show, skip to the next episode when you have time, and even pause or rewind live television when necessary.
