As much as we love watching our favourite shows and movies on phones and laptops, it doesn’t compare to watching them directly on the TV screens which are obviously bigger and offer a much more immersive experience. With the Amazon Fire TV devices, there’s a lot more you can do than just watching online content. Which is why we’re listing 5 reasons for you to buy one right away. 

1. It instantly converts your TV into a smart TV.

The Amazon Fire TV devices can be easily connected to your existing TVs via an HDMI port to satisfy all your streaming needs. You can stream movies, TV shows and songs from various streaming platforms including Amazon Prime Video, Disney+ Hotstar, Netflix, Amazon Music and many more. But that’s not it. You can also stream videos on YouTube, install several apps, and even browse fitness-related content all on your TV. 

2. It’s easy to travel with.

Given that a Fire TV Stick is the size of a USB, you barely need any space in your luggage to travel with it. The device also comes with its own remote with in-built voice control features, which you need to remember to carry along. It’s almost like travelling with your own personal television!

3. Setting it up is easier than you think.

The Fire TV devices can be set up within minutes! All you need to do is simply connect it to the HDMI port of your television, plug it into the power adapter, connect your TV to the internet, sign in with your Amazon account, and you’re good to go. The home screen is also easy to navigate through, where you can scroll right or left to switch between apps, shows, and the movies library. 

4. You can control and customize your data usage.

Another impressive feature that Amazon Fire TV devices come with is that you can control your viewing experience and data usage by setting the video quality with the data monitoring feature. This way, the device will even alert you before the data use exceeds your preset limit. And if there are kids at home, you can even set a PIN to restrict access to mature content in the parental controls settings. 

5. Alexa is directly built into the remote!

And finally, you can rely on Alexa to help you find your content. The Alexa voice remote comes with a built-in voice control feature. So you don’t have to type out your wish and strain your fingers, instead just ask Alexa to look for your favourite shows, movies, and music. Along with giving other instructions such as play, pause, forward, rewind content, etc, you can also do other cool stuff like view live camera feeds via connected smart devices, check sports scores, get weather updates, and access thousands of other Alexa skills!

Needless to say, the Amazon Fire TV devices are already a favourite in the country and it’s evident in the 2021 streaming trends that have been recently released by Amazon. And some of the findings are really interesting. It has been found that users are spending close to 4 hours daily on their Fire TV devices. Another trend revealed that customers interacted with Alexa on an average of once every 4 seconds on their Fire TV devices in 2021! 

Last year, Fire TV Stick was among the top 10 most popular products on during shopping festivals such as Prime Day and the Amazon Great Indian Festival. 35% customers gifted or shared Fire TV devices with their friends and families last year. And comedy retained its spot as the most preferred TV genre.

So when are you getting your own Amazon Fire TV device?
