Amazon Fire TV refers to two generations of digital media players and microconsoles developed by Amazon.com. It is a small network appliance and entertainment device designed to stream digital audio/video content to a high-definition television. The second generation has the same interface and works the same way with the first-generation Fire TV. The main difference is support for 4K content.
The second generation has also changed the Wi-Fi and upgraded to dual-band 802.11ac, and there's now a microSD slot on the rear so you can add to the 8GB of internal storage. With instant access to Netflix, Amazon Video, HBO NOW, Hulu, and more, you're sure to find something you love. Watch live TV with Sling TV, which includes ESPN, AMC, HGTV, TNT, Food Network, ABC Family, and more. You can install Plex and VLC for streaming 4K content you have on a NAS or on your microSD card.
With Amazon Fire TV devices, you can access to a lot of media apps - but not include iTunes. That's because movies and TV Shows you purchased or rented from iTunes Store are protected by Apple DRM copyright protection. Due to DRM, you can't play iTunes videos on non-apple devices.
