Shelly Palmer Radio Report – April 8, 2014

Amazon has finally made its way into your living room. Amazon Fire TV, a tiny streaming box for your home theater, was designed to offer a great and simple streaming experience. Two to four times more powerful than similar devices on the market, content playback on the Fire TV starts immediately, which means you’ll never again have to wait for content buffering. Built around the Amazon media experience, Fire TV also features third-party apps like Netflix, Hulu and Pandora. But the real difference-maker between the Fire TV and its competition is games. Amazon has teamed up with publishers like EA and Disney, and the thousands of games available now or soon can be controlled with the included remote, your smartphone or tablet, or with an optional $40 dedicated game controller. If you’ve been holding out on picking up a streaming device for your living room – or if you want to play some games in addition to streaming your media – Amazon’s Fire TV is now available for $99.
