Rumor promised, rumor due! After a trial run in India, the online distribution giant Amazon will indeed release its first televisions, no later than October, but only in the United States (to begin with?).
Amazon Fire TV Omni Series and Amazon Fire TV 4-Series
Two ranges are on the program, Fire TV Omni Series, and Fire TV 4-Series, the latter being more accessible at the price level and therefore a little less rich in terms of functionality. And as you will have noticed, the devices complete the brand's Fire TV line, already populated in particular with streaming keys and other multimedia boxes (click on the Amazon Fire TV Cube reference to discover the complete test of the product by the editorial staff). from AVCesar.com).
