AMAZON FIRE TV STICK with CyberFlix, Redbox T, and FileLinked Apps
AMAZON FIRE TV 4k STICK
With CyberFlix, and FileLinked Apps
Fire TV Stick 4K streaming device with Alexa built-in, Ultra HD, Dolby Vision, includes the Alexa Voice Remote. Alexa is Amazon’s voice-controlled assistant — but the remote used to cost extra. Now, it’s bundled with the Fire TV Stick 4K.
What does all that mean? Basically, you can hold down a physical button on the Fire TV Stick 4K remote and use your voice to search for apps, programming, and games, without having to punch in a bunch of characters using arrow keys on the remote. The voice search results are fast and, for the most part, accurate. Amazon’s TV interface has always been a bit more convoluted than some of the other streaming media boxes out there, but it has gotten much better, especially with the most recent software update. And with the exception of iTunes, the Fire TV Stick has almost every big streaming channel you could think of: Netflix, Hulu Plus, Sling, DirecTV Now, HBO, NFL, NBA, Spotify, news channels, and more.
There are a few other things that set the Fire TV Stick 4K apart. First, it’s fast for such a tiny stick. Second, Amazon has its own Prime Video and Music services, so if you’re a paying Prime member ($99 annually), you have access to those services. With the Fire TV Stick remote, you can simply say, “Play Prime music” without even opening an app. Amazon’s X-Ray feature, which appears on Kindle e-readers, is also pretty cool: when you pause a TV program that you’re watching, cast and character information appear on the lower third of the screen.
Really, the biggest downside to the Fire TV stick is that Amazon no longer offers the KODI app in the Amazon Appstore. However, the Amazon Fire TV Sticks and Fire TV devices sold here are loaded with CyberFix Apps so you can stream more Movies, TV Shows and more.
Using the Amazon fireTV devices and a quality Amplified HDTV Antenna you can ultimately CUT THE CABLE. Many networks that broadcast over the air TV have Sub-channels.
