(The actual price is $120, but Amazon is offering it to Prime subscribers for $90 through Friday.) "We really believe we've priced it at a price that customers not only think is valuable, but is super reasonable when you think about Echo, Fire TV, far-field control, and device control", says Penny. Where it stands out from Amazon's other Fire-branded products, however, is in its ability to control your TV and other set-top devices, such as cable boxes and sound bars, directly. Then imagine that control plugged into your TV so you can control everything plugged in there with your voice as well. Although there's a remote control if you prefer that option. You could say, "Alexa, turn on The Handmaid's Tale on Hulu", and the Cube will power on the TV, connect up to the streaming service, and start playing the show from where you left off.
Amazon Fire TV Cube uses far-field voice recognition with eight microphones. "And, it's just the beginning".
The Fire TV Cube will also connect to a low-priced TV antennae.
There is an IR extender cable, and Ethernet adapter, PSU, voice remote, and AA batteries in the box alongside your Fire TV Cube.
Apart from all the benefits of a universal remote, Fire TV Cube combines Fire Stick and Amazon Echo into a single device. You'll find advanced beam forming technology to help suppress noise and enable the device to zero in on your voice even with "competing speech" in the background.

Italian 18th seed Fabio Fognini also came through a five-setter to oust Britain's Kyle Edmund , the 16th seed. Juan Martin del Potro was a victor over former quarterfinalist ALbert Ramos Vinolas 7-5, 6-4, 6-1.
After making a request for, let's say, the Real Housewives of NY, the Cube will respond by serving up the user's cable, satellite box or some streaming apps.

Using these United States prices as a guide, and if we look at Amazon's current media streamer offering, we can at least make an educated stab at what the Amazon Fire TV Cube could retail for when it arrives in the UK. Customers who purchase and register their Fire TV Cube by July 1, will also receive a $10 credit for Prime Video. If you're looking for a streaming dongle that supports all the latest and greatest in vision and sound, the best will be Apple TV 4K when the new tvOS update rolls out this fall. At that time, Amazon teased the Amazon Fire TV Cube with a holding page on its USA storefront which simply said: "What is Amazon Fire TV Cube?"
