Saturday, November 3rd, 2018

Amazon’s Fire TV Recast lets you watch and record over-the-air HDTV broadcasts

Thursday, September 20th, 2018

Amazon has various Fire TV boxes that stream video from the internet, but the Fire TV Recast is something new. This is a DVR tuner box for watching and saving video from OTA sources like Fox and NBC. However, the Recast doesn't have anything to do with displaying the video. For that, you need another piece of hardware.

The $230 base model Fire TV Recast comes with 500GB of storage (enough for 75 hours) and two HDTV tuners.

Wednesday, August 29th, 2018

Amazon is cooking up a new streaming video service exclusively for its Fire TV devices, according to a report from The Information. The app, tentatively called Free Dive, won't cost a subscription fee, instead generating revenue for Amazon by showing viewers targeted advertisements.

The app is being developed by IMDB, which has been a subsidiary of Amazon since 1998. The company is said to be in talks with major TV networks to license non-original content for the service.

Amazon Fire TV gets new Alexa interface with latest update (v5.2.6.6)

Tuesday, August 14th, 2018

With the release of the Fire TV Cube in June, Amazon also debuted a more minimalistic interface for Alexa. The new UI has been exclusive to the Cube up to now, but the version 5.2.6.6 update for Fire TV and Fire TV Stick devices brings them in line with their square-sided sibling.

Old vs New.

As reported by AFTVnews, Alexa actions that are compatible with visual accompaniments have been refreshed. For example, asking for a weather update (above) or requesting cinema listings near you (below) now come with a much cleaner on-screen interface.
