I used to be the kind of person who didn’t care much about TV. I had a tiny little TV that I’d actually bought to use as an external computer monitor and that’s all I needed. Who cares about HD? Who cares about cable?
My mom gave me her old TV when she upgraded to a larger one at her house. And my tube-watching habits did a complete 180. I found it easier to stay engrossed in a show now that I was watching a bigger screen, and I broadened my streaming horizons to include Hulu, Prime Video, and Twitch along with the Netflix and YouTube I was watching before. I was a goner.
With the Fire TV Stick remote, you can summon Alexa by holding down the microphone button and saying Alexa’s name plus your command. You can ask Alexa to search for titles, play music, use skills like “weather” and “Flash Briefing”—basically anything you might ask your other Alexa devices. And of course, Amazon Fire TV devices pair perfectly with any other Amazon devices you already have.
If you’re like me and hate having to use multiple remotes, you’ll like that this remote has power, volume, and mute buttons to control your TV, sound bar, and receiver.
Fire TV gives you access to all the streaming channels you’re used to, like Prime Video, Netflix, Hulu (including live TV and sports packages if you so choose), Sling, and more. And when you add the Fire TV Recast to the mix, you can also watch and record over-the-air programming with no monthly fees!
With the Fire TV Recast, your antenna picks up nearby channels and the device integrates them with Fire TV so that you can use your Alexa-enabled remote or other devices to find live shows and schedule recordings.
You can say things like “Alexa, open Channel Guide” or “Alexa, record ‘Riverdale.’” Fire TV Recast delivers the most reliable video streams over Wi-Fi of any over-the-air DVR so you won’t be constantly frustrated by buffering or fuzzy picture.
