It's surprising that Netflix is supported with Amazon taking aim at rivals for their 'closed ecosystems' - particularly the Xbox which requires an annual Xbox Live GOLD subscription to access such services.
Amazon Fire TV streaming box: games
As well as video, the Fire TV also lets you play games. It has similar specs to modern smartphones and tablets and since it runs Fire OS - which is based on Android - you can play many of the titles available on a Kindle Fire tablet such as Minecraft, Asphalt 8, The Walking Dead and more. You can buy a Bluetooth controller which lets you play more complex and "high-intensity" games for £35, and it comes with Sev Zero - otherwise a £4.99 game. You don't have to buy it - the bundled Bluetooth remote control can be used for many games.
