Amazon is killing the TV remote

It's called the Fire TV Cube, and it's essentially a mashup between the 4K Fire TV and an Echo Dot. "And, it's just the beginning".

The commands work with live TV services, as well as streaming apps like Hulu or PlayStation Vue or HBO, Showtime and Starz.

It's unclear if or when the device will be available globally, but Amazon is running a few different promotions alongside the Fire TV Cube's release.

Arjun Tendulkar picked for India U-19 squad for Sri Lanka tour
Also in a zonal U-19 match between West and South Zone at Una, Tendulkar junior got 4 for 37 including three wickets in one spell. Arjun was a part of the Mumbai U19 squad previous year in the Cooch Behar Trophy where he impressed with 18 wickets.

With far-field voice recognition, eight microphones, and beamforming technology, Fire TV Cube hears you from any direction.

The device, available for purchase starting June 21, lets users adjust the volume on compatible TVs, switch inputs, change the channel and power on and off by using their voice. Prime members that order today or tomorrow can take advantage of a special introductory offer and grab the gadget for just $89.99 - a savings of $30.

Amazon is debuting a new Alexa-based streaming box today, but this one is a bit more capable than the rest of the company's lineup.

Amazon has launched the Fire TV Cube in the U.S., with pre-orders starting immediately. It can stream in 4K HDR with Dolby Atmos from all the leading streaming services (except YouTube, that is), just like any other Fire TV. The Fire TV Cube will be compatible with set-top boxes from providers like Comcast, DISH, and DIRECTV at launch, with Amazon saying that it'll cover more than 90% of cable subscribers in the U.S. out of the box.

Advanced beam-forming technology combines the signals from the individual microphones to suppress noise, reverberation, content now playing, and competing speech.

"Like a trustworthy best friend, Alexa helps you nail your look every time", said Linda Ranz, director of Echo product management.

Curry, Durant make deadly duo for Warriors
After Hood made a jumpshot to give Cleveland an 87-86 lead, Durant hit a pull-up 2-pointer on the other end to retake the lead. LeBron James scored 33 points and Kevin Love 20 for the Cavs, who have fallen into a hole in which no team has ever emerged.

Fire Cube TV uses remote control-style infrared signals and an HDMI physical connection to navigate among set-top boxes, sound bars and the TV itself. Enjoy hands-free voice control-search, play, pause, fast forward, and more. No more scrounging around for a remote-Alexa can find and access anything on any of your connected devices, even cable channels. And the device doesn't have the ability to communicate with bluetooth speakers, so, while the Fire TV Cube can turn the television into a music player, it stops short of managing other speakers throughout the home.
