Amazon Fire TV Cube official, combines Echo with set-top box

10 June 2018

Included with the Fire TV Cube is support for 4K Ultra HD, HDR-10, and Dolby Atmos sound.

The device is already available for pre-order on Amazon.com, and comes with a lot of interesting features. They can simply give Alexa commands to power the TV on and off, change the channels, adjust the volume, change the cable channel and more. The company also says many of Alexa's visual responses are optimized for the big screen. You can enjoy Prime Video, Netflix, Hulu, ESPN, Showtime, Starz, and more like you normally would in high resolution. Everyday Alexa commands - like reading out news headlines or weather forecasts - also get an upgrade because now Alexa can use your TV as a giant display to show you news updates/clips. Just say "Alexa, launch Netflix"; "Alexa, tune to CBS"; or "Alexa, find dramas".

"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. Household Profiles allows you to register up to two accounts to your Echo Look and switch just by asking or, using your voice, Alexa can recognise it and switch accounts automatically when enabled-you don't even need to ask.

Justify wins the Belmont Stakes, earning the coveted Triple Crown
Smith let Justify roll through a first quarter in:23.37, then subtly eased up the tempo to mark the half-mile in:48.11. Seattle Slew's Triple Crown - four years after that of Secretariat , was swiftly followed by Affirmed's in 1978.

To get voice to work well with a device that sits on a shelf rather than at head level or ear level, Amazon built "far-field voice recognition" into the Fire TV Cube. "And, it's just the beginning".

The Fire TV Cube is not entirely hands-free yet, however.

Echo Show has eight microphones and beam-forming technology so it can hear you from across the room-even while music is playing. It'll begin shipping on June 21st, but Amazon Prime customers who pre-order on either June 7th or June 8th can get the Fire TV Cube at a discounted price.

Lava continues to fill Kapoho Bay
It was where vacationers enjoyed tide pools, snorkeling and picnics, reported CNN affiliate Hawaii News Now . The area is primarily home to vacation rentals, but there are a lot of permanent residences there too.

The Cube, which is available for purchase starting June 21, will cost $119.99.

But the Fire TV Cube is finally out, priced at an aggressive $119.99 on pre-order in the USA today, and even made available for a discounted $89.99 for Prime members today and tomorrow only.
