As if this weren't all enough, Amazon says the Fire TV Cube will continue to be improved over time as future software updates roll out, adding even more capabilities to the device. So next time you want to binge all you need to say is "Alexa, play Californication" and voila you will never have to touch the TV remote.
The Cube connects to the TV via HDMI and supports both multi-directional IR and CEC, so you can control multiple HDMI-connected devices with the included remote. This is a better deal on the Echo Show than Amazon offered on Prime Day past year.
The Amazon Fire TV Cube features eight far-field microphones built-in.
Alexa itself is also increasingly inside some smart TVs.
The Fire TV Cube can do virtually everything an Echospeaker can. Amazon has tried to reduce the call-and-response aspect of the device, so you won't always hear Alexa telling you she's changed the channel or dimmed the lights or cued up the next item in your playlist. You can do things like ask for the weather, check your calendar, and get your daily briefing all thanks to the streaming box.
"We believe voice makes it easier for customers to control their entertainment systems and watch the TV and movies they care about", said Marc Whitten, Vice President of Fire TV.
Amazon Fire TV Cube is compatible with set-top boxes from top providers such as Comcast, DISH, and DIRECTV, covering more than 90 percent of households with a cable or satellite subscription. It can also reach to the devices that are kept in hidden places like cabinets and such with the help of the separate IR extender provided by Amazon with the Cube.
Amazon Fire TV Cube is available for pre-order as of today for $120 and will ship on June 21st.
Amazon Prime members who pre-order today or tomorrow, June 7 and 8, can pick one up for $89.99. Customer reviews, 1-Click shopping, personalized recommendations, Prime, Fulfillment by Amazon, AWS, Kindle Direct Publishing, Kindle, Fire tablets, Fire TV, Amazon Echo, and Alexa are some of the products and services pioneered by Amazon.
