    What can you watch on Fire TV? A ton of content. Amazon video, Hulu Plus, Watch Espn, Showtime, MLB, Disney, YouTube, Netflix
  • David Carnoy 4/2/2014 3:19:01 PM
    Based on Android and HTML so if you've got an Android app it should be easy to port over....
  • joan.solsman 4/2/2014 3:19:22 PM
    There are a lot of content partners at launch for sure -- Chromecast only had a few, and most were Google properties

  • David Carnoy 4/2/2014 3:20:36 PM
    Nothing yet about gaming...
  • Jimmy DErrico 4/2/2014 3:20:38 PM

  • Hunter Bonner 4/2/2014 3:20:39 PM
    Is there a holodeck function?
  • darth_jiyo 4/2/2014 3:20:41 PM

  • joan.solsman 4/2/2014 3:20:44 PM

  • kywildcat 4/2/2014 3:20:44 PM
    Welp, no android is the deal breaker for me
  • Michael 4/2/2014 3:20:46 PM
    Android Apps would be what will make it stand out if they can pull it off. Otherwise it is just a Roku+
  • Hunter Bonner 4/2/2014 3:20:48 PM
    Voice activation?
  • sarahtew 4/2/2014 3:20:49 PM

    They basically copied my android box and left out android
  • joan.solsman 4/2/2014 3:20:56 PM
    And Transparent, which got critical raves for its pilot
  • Rogeio 4/2/2014 3:20:58 PM
    I Like The Small Display!
  • julian 4/2/2014 3:20:59 PM

  • Cole DeBardelaben 4/2/2014 3:21:02 PM
    The way its going, it looks like a streaming box announcement
  • Rogeio 4/2/2014 3:21:05 PM

  • scott 4/2/2014 3:21:08 PM
    What about search? Remote doesn't have a keyboard. How did they solve that?
  • HCGCEO 4/2/2014 3:21:10 PM
    Amazon needs to do what Google does with its home page, get rid of the clutter and Ads, so the performance will get a boost
  • HCGCEO 4/2/2014 3:21:12 PM
    If amazon puts voice features on its streaming box, theyve got it made
  • Ultraman 4/2/2014 3:21:13 PM
    Design simplicity can sometimes mean customer experience complexity... (Apple Tv controller)
  • Cdub 4/2/2014 3:21:15 PM
    Voice Options?
  • julian 4/2/2014 3:21:16 PM

  • Hyatt 4/2/2014 3:21:23 PM
    How odd is it that Amazon doesn't have streaming video of their Video Streaming Device announcement?
  • mikeflacy 4/2/2014 3:21:28 PM
    @sarahtew That's a picture of everything we already own. :)
  • HCGCEO 4/2/2014 3:21:31 PM
