Fire Tv And Firestick

First, let's clear up some confusion. Amazon Fire TV is not a TV; it's a streaming set-top box. A set-top box connects your TV to the Internet so you can enjoy streaming TV shows, movies and music on the bigger screen of your TV. Apple started the whole confusing trend by naming its set-top box Apple TV, which is also not a TV.

Amazon Fire TV is a great way to share your photos with your family! No more passing the phone around to show off your vacation photos! Now you can see photos and play a slideshow of your albums on the Amazon Fire TV, just ask Alexa. Amazon sent me a fire TV stick – now with Alexa Voice Remote (you can grab one on Amazon) to try out. Amazon's Fire TV is one of the best streaming boxes on the market. It's perfect for use with Netflix and other streaming video on demand (SVOD) services, but that's not all that it can do.It's.

Amazon Fire TV was released by online retailer Amazon in April 2014 and sells for $99, the same price as the Apple TV and Roku 3 set-top boxes. As of 2014, only 8 percent of American households owned a set-top box, but Amazon is banking on increased demand from viewers for streaming entertainment on TVs instead of 'small-screen' laptops, tablets and smartphones [source: Wood].

One important note before you buy Amazon Fire TV: The device is designed to work with modern high-definition digital TVs, not the older, bulkier analog ones. The only way to connect Amazon Fire TV to your TV is with an HDMI cable. If your TV doesn't have an HDMI port, you either need to buy a new TV or buy a set-top box that's compatible with the old-school analog versions. A good option is the Roku 2 XS.

Another important question to ask before buying Amazon Fire TV is why the world's largest online retailer is building this piece of hardware? The answer is simple: to convince more people to buy TV shows, movies and music through Amazon.com. It's the same reason that Amazon made the Kindle e-reader: to sell more e-books from its huge online catalog.

As we'll explain in a minute, the ideal customer for the Amazon Fire TV is a current subscriber to Amazon Prime, a service that offers unlimited online access to hundreds of streaming TV shows and movies through Amazon.com (and free shipping on many Amazon products) for $99 a year. If you already get most of your streaming content through Amazon Prime, then the Amazon Fire TV is a perfect fit. If not, well ... more on that later.

Implementing an Android app that renders well on a television (or that behaves properly on both a tablet and a television) requires some attention to user interface layout.

This document provides technical information for building your UI layouts on the Amazon Fire TV platform. See Design and User Experience Guidelines for general guidelines on TV design.

Screen Size and Resolution

Many Android devices such as Fire tablets have a fixed physical size and a single resolution. This is not the case with Amazon Fire TV devices, to which you can connect a 720p or 1080p screen of any size.

The mechanism in Android to specify an activity layout in absolute coordinates independently of the video output resolution is to use density independent units (dp). Android scales the graphic resources so that the size remains constant independently of the screen resolution.

The following table shows the pixel size, density and display resolution for various video outputs connected to an Amazon Fire TV device.

If you design your app to run on platforms other than Amazon Fire TV, such as tablets, you can create different layouts and drawables for each platform, and store them in subdirectories of res/ named for various platform and device configurations. For more information on using these resource configurations, see the Android best practices guide for Supporting Multiple Screens.
