Amazon Fire TV Stick

October 27, 2014

Amazon FireTVStick and Remote

Pretty interesting move by Amazon to release Fire TV Stick. It sells for $39.00 and comes with a free 30-day trial of Netflix and Amazon Prime. Existing Amazon Prime customers get $20 off Fire TV Stick.

Amazon is clearly positioning Fire TV Stick against Google Chromecast, which currently sells for under $30 at Amazon and Roku Streaming Stick, which currently sells for $49.00 at Amazon.

It’s all thanks to a dual-core processor with 6x the processing power of Roku Streaming Stick, a dedicated VideoCore4 GPU, and 8 GB of storage—4x that of Chromecast and 32x that of Roku Streaming Stick.

I have Google Chromecast which currently is not connected to any TV. I ordered Amazon Fire TV Stick out of curiosity. I do enjoy Amazon Fire TV, until I stopped using it in favor of Apple TV; blame it on HBO GO and iTunes Home Sharing.
