Amazon Fire TV

Amazon’s Fire TV and Fire TV Stick will soon be much more useful, especially if you’re outside of the US. Thanks to an impending update, both streaming media hubs will work in dorm rooms, hotels and other places where you have to sign in before you get online — you can pack your device on that big vacation. The two also get support for Prime Music playlists, shortcuts for screen mirroring and hidden PIN codes when you make a purchase. You’re in for the biggest treat if you have a full-fledged Fire TV box, since you’ll get support for USB storage (to hold all your extra apps and games) and Bluetooth headphones (for those late-night movies).

The update is only expected to arrive in the “coming weeks.” However, you won’t have to live in the US to enjoy it. Amazon has also announced that the Fire TV Stick is coming to both Germany and the UK on April 15th. If you’ve been jonesing for the tiny media adapter, you can pre-order it now for £35 or €39.
