Amazon releases Fire TV stick in India

- Adrian Ungureanu

Amazon has launched its Fire TV Stick in India and the device is priced at INR 3,999 ($62) for Prime as well as non-Prime customers.

Those who are already subscribed to Prime will get INR 499 as cashback to their Amazon Pay balance and non-Prime customers will get a 1-year subscription to the Prime video service, which also includes expedited delivery for select items.

The Amazon Fire TV Stick is a media player that has the compact form-factor of the Google Chromecast but actually runs a full version of Android with Amazon’s skin on top. You can access videos from Amazon’s own service as well as other popular services such as Netflix, Eros Now, Hotstar, Airtel Movies, Gaana, Saavn, Voot, and more.
