Amazon Updates Fire TV Family

After the AppleTV was updated last week, everyone has waited for Amazon’s response. Earlier today, the company updated their line of Fire TV products. The new lineup includes 3 models ranging from $49 to $139. The new Fire TV Stick will sell for $49 with a voice operated remote. The traditional Fire TV set-top box will now feature 4K UltraHD streaming and sell for $99. The flagship Fire TV Gaming Edition includes all the functionality of its $99 cousin, but also supports games controllers. This model will sell for $139. Amazon is even including clever bylines like “more games than any other steaming media player” or “the only streaming media device with a voice remote.” What they’re really saying is… “in your eye Apple.”
