The Amazon Fire TV is a set-top computer intended for use with an HDTV, and its main intended purpose is to add access to streaming services and web content to a pre-existing home entertainment centre. Users have access to a wide selection of TV episodes and movies through services like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime, though each requires a separate subscription. Internet radio streaming and games are also available, as well as music streaming apps. A wealth of other paid and free apps and services are accessible and even more are in development.

In terms of physical and technical features, a main selling point is the unit's compact and unassuming size. It also comes with an intuitive and simple remote, and the overall setup is intended to be quick and simple. The internal specifications include a quad-core processor, dedicated graphics processor and 2GB of RAM. HD video and digital surround sound processing are on-board as well. User interface features include voice commands (which Amazon suggests are much better than competing models) and different user profiles, to customize settings.
