Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Unprecedented. Never has such a universe of entertainment and education been packed into such a small package. Amazon's Fire TV has three times the processing power and four times the memory of any competing home-electronics gadget. It's truly a premium product at a bargain price.

Hi, I'm Steve Weber, publisher of Kindle Buffet, a daily list of free and discounted Kindle books. You can get a free subscription at KindleBuffet.com.  After you buy this book, head over to the Buffet and chow down!

Fire TV brings a menu of more than 200,000 movies and TV episodes to your fingertips. It's a huge, open ecosystem of entertainment. Plus, it comes with access to the best video games. 
The Fire TV, the little box that plugs into your HDTV, provides instant access to every leading video-streaming service--Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, Hulu Plus, WatchESPN, and Showtime. New movie releases are available for low-cost rentals. And the FireTV brings much more of your personal media to your TV--photos, home video, and music. You can play slide shows and find specific photos. Photos or videos you take on your phone or tablet can be uploaded to Amazon Cloud Drive and appear on your TV within seconds.



Here are the must-have features Fire TV delivers:


  • Voice search that just works. It's perhaps the biggest leap forward with Fire TV. No more scrolling and pecking letters from an alphabet grid, you simply mention the name of a movie, TV show, actor, director or genre. 
  • Every leading streaming-video service. They're all available on your TV, plus a world of music--Amazon MP3s, Pandora, iHeartRadio, TuneIn, and more. With X-Ray for Music, lyrics display and scroll line-by-line automatically as the song plays. 
  • World-class performance in a tiny box--a quad-core processor with more than three times the muscle of the competitors, Apple TV, Chromecast, or Roku 3. True HDTV plus Dolby Digital Plus surround sound. 
  • Ready to use, right out of the box. After you order your Fire TV from Amazon, the unit arrives pre-registered to your Amazon account. Just take it out of the box, plug it in, and start enjoying. 
  • Advanced Streaming and Prediction (ASAP), which predicts which movies and shows you'll want to watch, and pre-loading them for you. 
  • High-quality gaming without the expense of a game console. Enjoy games like Minecraft, Monsters University, The Game of Life, The Walking Dead, NBA2K14, Asphalt 8, and much more. The average prices of Fire TV games is a measly $1.85. 
  • Revolutionary parental controls. You can choose what your kids see and you can set time limits for the types of content and times of day. No more arguments at bedtime. FreeTime Unlimited provides an all-you-can-eat subscription for kids aged 3 to 8. 
  • More than just a gadget, Fire TV is a seamlessly integrated service that manages your entertainment experience, including features like: 
  • Whispersync--Preserves and synchronizes your video and music library across all of your devices. You can start watching a movie on your Kindle Fire tablet, then switch to your living-room TV. The video resumes exactly where you left off. The same is true for games, you can switch devices seamlessly. 
  • Worry-Free Archive--Your digital content is automatically backed up to Amazon's cloud. No worries about losing your collection. 
  • Great customer service--With Amazon, help is just a phone call or email away. If you're using your Kindle Fire, you can tap the Mayday button for live assistance.

More About the Author

Hey, thanks for visiting my page.

I'm Steve Weber, publisher of KindleBuffet.com, where I post a daily list of five-star Kindle books offered free that day. I also have a book called "Kindle Buffet" (Guess what? It's free!). It's one of my several nonfiction tomes about bookselling and collecting, publishing, authorship, book marketing, and social media. You can check out all of my books right here on this page.

I'm from Charleston, West Virginia, and currently live in the Northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C.

In college I studied Journalism -- BS, 1987, West Virginia University (Let's Goooo, Mountaineers!) I was pretty green back then, and I figured a career in newspapers was just the ticket for a guy such as myself who enjoyed writing but had no ideas of his own.

After working several years as a reporter and editor, I started a home-based business selling used and collectible books online (mainly on Amazon). Five years later, I wrote my first book based on that experience: "The Home-Based Bookstore." It's a short book but it took me a long time to write it. I'd never written anything longer than 25 paragraphs or so, and had never used an outline since grade school. I still don't know how to use one. Maybe that's why it takes me so long to write, and all my books read like an upside-down pyramid ;-)

Recently I've been fascinated with publishing my books on the Kindle, and all the other great books available. I'm especially keen on checking out each day's free Kindle books, of course. They're irresistable, like candy or free beer. Or, as one Kindle Buffet reader put it, "They're like potato chips. Nobody can download just one."

I started Kindle Buffet in the summer of 2012, and it draws on my experiences in book-picking, interviewing, writing and publishing. I feel like I have a knack for recognizing what other people might want to read, and talking them into doing it. I figured it would take just 20 minutes a day to update the site and, for a while, it did. Just as with everything else I do, it ended up taking about 25 times longer than I'd figured. So these days I've got about 20 minutes left in my day after I've finished with Kindle Buffet.

A lot of people ask me how I manage to do it all. "Steve," they say, "how can you possibly read 60, 70, 80 books a day, seven days a week?"

My reply is always the same: "Doesn't everybody? I mean, c'mon, they're FREE! There's no excuse not to!"

Both the print and Kindle versions of this book are incomplete. The print version is woefully short and lacking on details beyond what Amazon provides in the official user manual. To make matters worse, even if the Kindle version is updated with new features, the print version won't be, so you'll be wasting $9 by buying it. The last third or so of the book is just a list of apps that are displayed right on the front page of the Fire TV and, again, will be out of date before you know it. The grainy black & white photos in the print version don't help at all, either.

This is a great.source to get the understanding of the KindleTV! I especially liked the advanced feature of mirroring or using the Kindle Fire HDX with the KindleTV. I pretty much understood everything else because of ease of use. Highly recommended for those that need to get the most out of the device. I have Prime so I just borrowed the book.

I know that is not the fault of the publisher but after reading it found that it was totally worthless.
No one should need the book to figure our Fire TV. its nothing more than basic set up info.
anyone that can figure out how to turn on a tv can figure out how to run fire tv without spending money
on this book.
I bought from a mobile app without actually seeing what I got on an impulse.

Don't waste your money, like I did.

AS ANY FIRE USER WOULD KNOW, THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO NEED TO PURCHASE THIS MANUAL. FIRE REALLY IS PLUG AND PLAY AND THE MENUS ARE REALLY EASE TO USE. AMAZON SHOULD PULL THIS ITEM FROM SALE ON THEIR SITE AS IT'S FRIVELOUS AND TOTALLY UNNECESSARY.

You would figure they would throw this in with the $100 box.
This is purely for the fanboys out there.

Very basic. Not too helpful. Since the FireTV unit is already simple to use, a how-to book should cover non-obvious things.
