Stephan Jukic – April 15, 2019
One of Amazon’s newest and most powerful 4K ultra HD streaming media platforms, the Amazon Fire TV Cube is now on sale for a hefty discount on the giant online retailer’s website.
Amazon has taken the power of its streaming media smart platform that has already been so popular in other 4K devices like the Fire TV 4K streaming media stick and brought it into the Cube. Unlike the comparatively compact and simple Fire TV stick though, the Cube takes user-friendliness to a new level.
The Fire TV Cube is Amazon’s first completely hands-free streaming media player with Alexa. This means that you can simply ask its internal voice recognition platform to do all kinds of things that include full control of content search and play options along with voice handling for household functions like turning on the TV itself, dimming the living room lights, and getting information from the web.
The Cube comes packed with technology too, Offering far-field voice recognition, eight microphones, and beamforming technology. This device can hear you from any direction as you ask it to. Control or change content—search, play, pause, fast forward, and more.
The Amazon Cube also supports 4K ultra HD resolution at a smooth 60fps and offers the same full HDR support as the Amazon Fire TV stick. It’s worth mentioning that the app platform built into the Cube is loaded with all the same media apps that the Fire TV stick comes with. These include all the majors like Netflix, HBO, Hulu, Amazon Prime and others along with thousands more, totaling up to several hundred thousand hours of extremely varied home entertainment for your ultra HD TV.
Normally priced at $119.99, the Cube has gotten the biggest discount of all the Amazon devices that the company has discounted recently. It’s going for a 33% discount off its normal price. This brings it to just $79.99 for this presumably limited time offer.
