After numerous leaks, Amazon has finally announced the latest member of its Fire TV family, the Fire TV Cube. Despite the size, however, don’t expect a whole lot more from this latest iteration.
Compared to the Fire TV Stick, the new Fire TV Cube doubles the internal storage from 8GB to 16GB, adds an Ethernet port, but uses the same processor. You can use Alexa to change channels once integrated with your existing cable box, so a hands-free TV experience is definitely in the cards. With the Box’s built-in microphones, you won’t even have to use the remote. We are truly living in the future.
Beyond that, however, there just aren’t enough upgrades here if you already own a recent Fire TV device.
The Fire TV Box is up for pre-order now and will run $89.99 if you’re a Prime Member, otherwise it’s $119.99.
