Amazon Plan Launching Fire TV Stick In India

Finally, Amazone will be launching Fire TV Stick India very soon, a report from TechPP says that the streaming device was supposed to be launch last year (2016) when Amazon launched the Prime service in India but was delayed because of some Sequimstances and unknown reason.



According to a report from TechPP, the Fire TV Sick is expected to price INR 1999 ($31) for Prime customer while the price for non-Prime customers is said to be INR 3,999. Meaning that to get a Prime membership in India is cheaper than the non-Prime.

The Fire TV Stick has a customized version of Android running on it and has support for Android applications and games. It is also capable of 1080p video output and comes with the latest Alexa Voice Remote that allow you to search for content using voice commands. The Fire TV Stick also has support for streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu, HBO Now, YouTube, ESPN, Spotify, Pandora, and Vevo.

What is Amazon Fire TV

Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV StickThe Amazon Fire TV is a streaming media player, meaning it takes content from the Internet (videos, music, games, etc.) and displays it on TV. The Fire TV comes in two models: the Amazon Fire TV, which is a small box and the Fire TV Stick. The two models work very similarly but obviously there are some differences; otherwise, the stick will be the same price.

Main differences between the two models.

Both models support 1080p HD resolution. The box also supports 4K Ultra HD.
The Fire TV box connects to your TV with an HDMI cable and plugs into the wall with a standard A/C adapter. The Fire TV Stick plugs directly into an HDMI port on your

TV, which makes it great for wall-mounted TVs. The power comes from a USB cable that you can plug into a USB port on your TV or into the wall with the included adapter.
The box has some extra apps that aren’t supported by the stick (~5200 vs 4800). I think these are mostly games

What you can do with a Fire TV

You can do countless of things with a fire TV but i will list important few which are

You can use it to watch Streaming Videos
Not surprisingly, the Fire TV is very tightly integrated with the Amazon Instant Video service. But there are tons of other content providers that work with it including Netflix, Hulu, HBO GO and HBO NOW, Sling TV, ESPN, Disney, PBS, History, YouTube, NBA, and much more.

You can use it to listen to Streaming Audio
The Fire TV supports lots of music services, including their own Amazon Music, Pandora, Spotify, and iHeart Radio.

You can play Games
There are free and paid games available for both devices, including highly popular ones like Crossy Road, Candy Crush Saga, and Minecraft. Additionally, there’s a Fire TV Gaming Edition, which has a full-on console so you can play more complex games.



You can mirror a Mobile Device’s Screen
If you own a compatible Kindle Fire tablet or Android device, you can duplicate your screen on your TV. This has a couple of benefits:


  • Any streaming media you can access via your compatible device you can now watch on your TV for. for example you can watch live shows from broadcast and cable networks this way if the network streams them on their websites or through mobile apps that don’t have built-in Fire TV support.
  • Also, you can also see any non-streaming content from your tablet or phone on your TV. Maybe you want to scroll through your Twitter feed on a large screen or access your email or browse match.com profiles—anything you’re doing on the device will display on your TV.


You can get information with it
both models of the Fire TV come with Alexa, Amazon’s voice-activated, artificial intelligence software (aka Amazon’s Siri). In addition to letting you search for content to play on your Fire TV, Alexa can also give you news headlines, weather reports, stock prices, sports scores, business phone numbers, etc. (Some of these functions may not be available on the Fire TV right away, but the company says they’re planning to continue adding capabilities over time.) In early 2016, Amazon rolled out Alexa functionality to first-generation Fire TV boxes and sticks as well. To use it on the stick, you need a voice remote, which you can buy separately.


Note: Buying an Amazon Fire TV does not give you access to the content you can watch on it, just like buying a TV does not give you access to cable TV shows. You need to have accounts with each service that provides the content (some free, some paid) and/or subscribe to a cable/satellite package that gives you permission to access shows from specific networks through the Fire TV. When you see an app listed as “free” on the Fire TV interface or the Amazon website, it just means there’s no cost to install the app itself on your player. It has nothing to do with whether the content accessed by the app costs money.
