Amazon fireTV enables access to Internet programming and a giant library of video games. The device was made available Wednesday on for $99.

According to the company, the benefits of Amazon fireTV include a massive selection of movies, a voice search that works and an easy set up. The device is also perfect for Amazon Prime users, the company said, as it will offer up thousands of movies to subscribers.
