Amazon is well known for their variety of products including the Amazon Kindle but now the online retail giant is introducing us to their new small television set top box called Amazon Fire TV.

The streaming box which began shipping in April, will stream movies, TV shows, and music from users’ Amazon libraries, services like Netflix, and Hulu and apps like Pandora and iHeartRadio.

The box is very thin actually about as thin as a dime and can sit in your entertainment center or be mounted behind the television. The remote is a small Bluetooth device that has buttons for media playback and navigation, it is similar to the Apple TV remote, but allows for voice commands to search for programs.

Amazon Fire TV has Fast quad-core processor, 2 GB of memory, dedicated GPU, plus 1080p HD video and Dolby Digital Plus surround sound and is perfect for parents who want to limit screen time and personalize profiles for kids.

Unlike other streaming devices the Amazon Fire TV also allows you to play games with your device. Several of the games are available to purchase through Amazon for prices starting around $1.85.

The device is easy to use and has lots of features including easy search commands, a great selection of apps to choose from and ways to store your photos and videos.

Amazon’s Fire TV costs starts at $99 which is the same as an Apple TV, but is twice the price of the cheapest Roku device. The Amazon Fire TV is currently available and is shipping today.

If you are looking for a streaming device be sure to compare your options to see which one best fits your needs for parental controls, game playing, movies, and listening to music. Amazon provides a comparison chart at the bottom of the Amazon Fire TV product screen for you to see which box has what features available.

When looking for a streaming device try to read what others have to say about selecting the best options available and read online reviews and videos. There are also great deals and things to be said about skipping the device all together and purchasing a Smart TV in order to stream movies, music and other media.
