Amazon Fire TV Now Available In The UK

Back in April Amazon announced their Fire TV set top box in the US, and today they have made it available here in the UK.

The streaming / casual gaming device offers services from Netflix, Red Bull TV, YouTube, Spotify, Vimeo and their own Amazon Instant Video service, alongside some other video content. Amazon Cloud users will also be able to stream videos and photos from the Kindle Fire to the TV.

It’s available for £79 but Amazon Prime members can pick up the Fire TV for £49 until Monday (8th September) a saving of £30 although they will have to wait for the 23 October 2014 release date like everyone else.
