Amazon have announced a range of new Alexa powered Fire TV devices are set to arrive in the UK.
Fire TV Cube
The Fire TV cube is similar to the Fire TV stick with built in Alexa support that doesn’t need the external voice remote. Amazon claim it’s the fastest Fire TV device so far and integrates with your wider smart home setup; allowing you to control your lights and more as part of your TV watching experience.
- Fire TV Cube is the fastest, most powerful Fire TV ever, delivering a fast, fluid experience for your favourite films and TV programmes.
- From across the room, just ask Alexa to turn on the TV, dim compatible lights and play what you want to watch.
- Control your compatible soundbar and A/V receiver; change satellite channels with your voice.
- With the built-in speaker, ask Alexa to check the weather, turn off compatible lights and more – even when the TV is off.
- With an ultra-powerful hexa-core processor, Fire TV Cube delivers instant access to 4K ultra HD content, plus support for Dolby Vision and HDR, HDR10+ and Dolby Atmos.
- Watch favourites from Netflix, Prime Video, YouTube, ITV Hub, All 4, Curzon and more. Subscriptions may be required.
- Fire TV Cube is designed to protect your privacy. To electronically disconnect the microphones, press the Microphone On/Off button.
- With a Prime subscription, watch thousands of films and TV programmes including ‘Good Omens’ and ‘Hanna’.
- Use the included Alexa Voice Remote to control your TV without making a sound.
