Amazon made a big splash when it announced the new $70 Fire TV — it’s a tiny powerhouse of a media streamer, with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, support for 4K HDR streaming, and Dolby Atmos support. (There’s no Dolby Vision HDR, however.) It felt like a direct shot at the new $179 Apple TV 4K, and in practice, it’s definitely the closest competitor to Apple’s box, with a polished interface and tight Alexa integration that Roku boxes can’t really match. But as usual, specs don’t tell the whole story here.
