Amazon’s most powerful streaming player

We’ve been testing the new Fire TV Cube for the past few days and would like to make a handful of comments that should definitely be considered before placing an order.

HDMI input (for the Apple TV)

The star of the show (for us) is the now available HDMI input, to which not only a game console or a set-top box from the active TV providers on the market can be connected, but also an Apple TV can be connected. straight away.

Another advantage: With Alexa voice commands, the surface of the intelligent language assistant is displayed above the image output of the Apple TV, allowing the two best representatives in their category to be used simultaneously.

Live TV with public transport

The Fire TV Cube allows users to access Amazon’s Fire TV operating system, which includes not only Prime Video but also a number of third-party streaming applications. In addition, Amazon has ensured a very good integration of the public broadcasters. These can be called up, played back and forwarded just as easily from the Fire TV interface as with conventional television.

The processor built into the Cube ensures that current content is upscaled to 4K resolution, both when watching TV and when playing streaming content. The so-called “super-resolution technology” does an excellent job.

USB, 4K Ultra HD, Dolby Vision

In addition, the Cube has a USB port to which storage media for, for example, photo presentations can be connected and supports not only Wi-Fi 6E but also the industry standards 4K Ultra HD, Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos and HDR.

Which reduces the fun of the little cube a bit: the top model only comes with the regular Alexa voice remote. If you want to use the Alexa voice remote control Pro, which is illuminated, has extra buttons for performing routines and has the new Remote Finder function, you have to invest an extra 39.99 euros.
