With Netflix, Hotstar and Amazon Prime video as the faces of streaming TV, day by day more Indians are showing interest in cable-free smart entertainment. Amazon observed this and now introduced a new device that acts as a hub for streaming.

Why Amazon Fire Stick?

Remember Chromecast?  It is the plug-in device for your TV which enables you to cast everything on your mobile phone to view the movies and videos you like on your big TV. Amazon Fire Stick is for the same purpose but minus the smartphone. It does not require any ties with your smartphone, just a charging cable, and Wi-Fi connection.
