To give some context before I delve into the Amazon Fire TV, I have been using streaming devices ever since the original Xbox on which I installed XBMC. I have a large collection of media on a PC which I use to stream to our main TV. Since the original Xbox I have used a variety of devices to stream media including Apple TV, more recent consoles and the Google Chromecast.

*** SET UP ***

The Amazon Fire TV includes the unit itself, along with a power adaptor, 2 x AAA batteries and a remote control. Before you can use this though, you will also need to purchase a HDMI cable (Amazon has these for around £5). You may also need to buy an optical cable, depending on your setup (more on that later). Setup was a cinch, plug the unit into your power supply, connect your Ethernet cable (if you want a wired connection) and connect the HDMI cable to your television.

It was nice to see that each Fire TV comes pre-configured for your Amazon account, so there's no need to login. Simply plug it in, update the software and off you go.

When the Fire TV finishes downloading and installing a software update on first boot, you will eventually arrive at the Home screen. Here you will find all of your Amazon Prime content (although at the moment there is no easy way to sort between what you get free with your Prime subscription and the paid content).

You can also install third-party apps. The only one I have installed at the time of review was Plex. Do note, that this is a paid application. It will cost you either £2.98 or 298 Amazon Coins. I went for the latter option as Amazon offer 89 coins with the Plex 'purchase', which means the effective cost is 209 coins (or £2.09).

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazon Fire TV 23 Nov 2014
By Shane
Verified Purchase
Excellent media device. Was going to buy the Apple TV but this seemed pointless when I am already paying for Amazon Prime and not enjoying the free video content available.

The build quality is excellent and equally as good as the quality that we have come to expect from Apple, even the packaging provides a great sense of quality and care.

The content is really good and the voice search is incredibly accurate. A big surprise for me was discovering that all of my Amazon purchased music is available and can be played through the Fire TV directly from the cloud. I have now connected the Fire TV to my AV receiver using an optical cable which plays the music in stereo and movies in Dolby Digital 5.1.

I have only given 4 stars because I just don't like the way the fast forward and rewind options work when viewing TV/Movies. It works but its very difficult to know when you have reached your desired point. Unlike Sky HD, the picture freezes at the point of pressing fast forward and instead you have to gauge the position by the time counter. It would be much better (if like Sky HD) you are able to watch the picture move, allowing you to easily see when to press play. (This could be due to the difference between streaming verses playing from a hard disk - not sure)

All in all, a great product and I am really happy with the purchase.

1.0 out of 5 stars Parental Controls.......abysmal. 24 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase
I actually really like the Amazon Fire TV. So does my 11 year old. And that's the problem. Parental controls are either allow all video or ask for a pin code. So if I were to implement a pin code for this, every time a new episode of Power Rangers starts. enter the pin code. 20 minutes later, same again etc, etc. Thankfully he sticks to kids stuff and we keep an eye on what he watches but to say it's poorly implemented is putting it midly. As if the person who thought of putting it on actually has no kids at all. Spoke to customer services, I don't think it's the first call they've had on this. If I could restrict video viewing by age as I can on the pc I'd have given it 4 stars at least. Amazon, up your game or lose a prime renewal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, Worth Every Penny and just works! 25 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase
Love it, Love it, Love it! If I didn't have a 15 year history with Apple iTunes I would be throwing my Apple TV in the bin. It is the simplest device I have ever installed, comes preconfigured with your Amazon account, the picture quality is 2nd to none and the screen saver pictures I could sit and watch for hour after hour they are so beautiful. I don't play games so cannot comment on that, but to have all these choices of TV and movies as well as some very useful apps like Sky & BBC news just make it complete. I don't know why Amazon allow people to leave 1 star reviews because of missing features; if you want DLNA then buy a DLNA compatible device, don't complain that this hasn't got it when it did not claim to be anything but an online streaming platform.

Sexy little box that was simple to install and setup. Performance is great and makes a huge difference to using the noisy Xbox 360 for streaming.

Only a few points I'd like to mention for consideration.

1. Support for 1080i would be nice for those of us with older TVs.

2. Would be nice if we could hide or delete Media types such as Apps and Games from the main list to make it less distracting and cluttered. I only need Amazon Prime and Netflix and it would be nice to just have those options I need mainly on screen.

3. Better separation of whats available for Prime Free Streaming and what has to be paid for/rented. Gets really annoying when you pay for the streaming and lots of stuff you select has to be paid for on top of that. Can we have that stuff pulled well to one side?
