If you’ve been eyeing the Amazon Fire TV as a possible addition to your home entertainment setup you’ll want to take heed of Amazon’s latest deal. They’re knocking $15 off its price to celebrate a “boatload of new apps,” bringing the set-top box down to a respectable $84. Amazon Fire TV gives you quick and easy access to Amazon’s ecosystem or music, movies and TV shows, as well as multimedia apps from various third party sources and games from the Amazon Appstore.
Amazon’s prideful accomplishment comes from the second screen experience that can be had with an accompanying Amazon Kindle Fire tablet, a feature that gives you more info on the movies and TV show you’re viewing without having to do much work to dig it up yourself.
For hardware, the device features a quad-core chipset, 2GB of RAM, dual-band WiFi, HDMI-out, support for Dolby Digital Plus surround sound and more. Add a $40 gaming controller and you’ve got yourself a pretty slick piece of kit that can keep you entertained for quite a while. Be sure to take advantage of the deal at Amazon’s site before it dissipates.
