Play thousands of movies, TV shows, and other forms of media simply with the sound of your voice when you use the 2nd generation Amazon Fire TV Stick with the Alexa voice-controlled remote. This device makes it possible to access content without the need for a cable service or subscription, needing only access to the Internet, such as through a wired or wireless connection. Alexa, the proprietary virtual assistant from Amazon, makes it possible to control the remote without touching the buttons by only issuing voice commands. When connected to Internet-accessible streaming services like Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, YouTube TV, Hulu, and others, a simple command is all that is required to access the service and find content easily. Use the universal search mode to play content from these and hundreds of online sites to play on your HDTV when the Amazon Fire stick is inserted into the TV’s HDMI port. If you have an Echo device, such as an Echo Dot, you can connect the Amazon Fire stick to the same account and use the Echo device to control what you see on your TV. You can also access music sites, video gaming sites and others in this manner. The black Amazon Fire TV Stick is powered by a power adapter and the remote requires two AAA batteries. The Fire Stick offers 8 GB of storage to keep media that you wish to access easily.
