Amazon Fire TV is the highly anticipated digital streaming box from Amazon. It consists of a flat box that connects to your TV via HDMI. As expected, it has the Amazon Prime and Instant Video services, but third-party services like Netflix, Hulu Plus, Watch ESPN and Showtime Anytime are available as well.

The most novel feature of Amazon Fire TV is its remote control. This remote control has all the standard directional and navigation buttons but also has a voice control button. Users can tap the voice control button and speak into their remote control to instantly navigate to desired content. The remote control connects to the TV via Bluetooth rather than infrared, meaning it doesn't need a clear line-of-sight with the box as long as it's within its Bluetooth range.
