The Fire TV Cube, however, is more like a set-top box and sits in front of your screen.
The Fire TV Cube is built to be hands-free but the device still comes with a remote control. Apps like NetflixPrime Video, HBO, Hulu and more will give you access to over 500,000 movies and TV shows. The Fire TV Cube is pretty much similar to the Apple TV 4K that also features HDMI CEC, Dolby Atmos support and more.
The Fire TV Cube is now available for pre-order in the USA for $119.99 and ships with an IR extender cable and Ethernet adapter starting June 21. Its standard price $119.99, but Prime members who pre-order today (June 7) or tomorrow (June 8) will save $30, bringing total cost down to $89.99. Amazon Prime members can pre-order Fire TV Cube on June 7th and 8th at a special price of $90 and it can also be pre-ordered together with the recently announced Amazon Cloud Cam for United States $199.98. It also includes an infrared emitter that can control TV volume and switch to live channels on cable and satellite boxes.
After making a request for, let's say, the Real Housewives of NY, the Cube will respond by serving up the user's cable, satellite box or some streaming apps.

"We really believe we've priced it at a price that customers not only think is valuable, but is super reasonable when you think about Echo, Fire TV, far-field control, and device control", says Penny.
