Amazon has unveiled a Google Chromecast like Fire TV stick in India. Essentially, this Amazon Fire TV stick turns your TV into the smart television. This means, now you can watch Amazon Prime video on TV. Amazon is offering Rs. 499 cashback via Amazon Pay for its Prime members. Amazon Fire TV stick will be made available at all physical retailers like Reliance Digital and Crome starting this Thursday.
Amazon is giving a great push by providing limited period offers on this Fire TV stick. You can get 240GB data on your You Broadband connection for three months. Also, you can get 100GB of free data on your Airtel broadband and 4G Wi-Fi connection for the same period. Besides this, Amazon is also offering three-month free premium subscription for Eros Now and ad-free streaming for 6 months on Gaana.
How does this Amazon Fire TV stick work?
Just like Google Chromecast, you can directly plug Amazon Fire TV Stick into HDMI port on your TV. The device works on a voice command instead of using your phone to cast. You get a voice remote to search or navigate the interface by speaking to it.
Amazon said that the voice search is also enabled for picking up names of Hindi titles. Conversely, Amazon voice assistant Alexa failed to make its presence in the device.
Amazon Fire TV Stick specifications:
The Fire TV Stick runs on a quad-core chip coupled with 1GB RAM. The device comes with 802.11ac Wi-Fi support. It allows you to install over 3000 apps and service with its 8GB inbuilt storage. However, you get any options to expand the storage.
Amazon Fire TV Stick price in India is Rs. 3,999 which comes bundled with many offers like preloaded games. The present cashback offer for prime members on Fire TV Stick is valid until May 31.
