From enhanced Wi-Fi to 4K Ultra HD capabilities and support from Echo's Alexa, the new Amazon Fire TV 4K boasts a slew of impressive new features. In all, Amazon claims that this next generation of the Fire TV is 75 percent more powerful—amazingly, it's priced at under $100.

The streamlined multimedia device boasts more than 3,000 channels, apps and games, which is more than similar streaming media players offered by competitors.

Alexa (the smart assistant that powers the Echo speaker that was released early last year) is also integrated with the Fire TV Stick with Voice Remote system, which makes it incredibly easy to conduct voice searches and prompt Alexa to give information on the weather, traffic and more. As technology becomes smarter and more valuable for entertainment and daily life, devices like the new Amazon Fire TV are competing to be the central hub of the home.
