Amazon’s strategy with its hardware in Spain is not different from what it has in other countries. It is true that as with Google or Apple, the launches in the United States are more numerous and faster, but sooner or later they tend to also reach our country.
Amazon Echo and Fourth Gen Echo Dot, Review: A Sea Change in Design and an Alexa More Powerful Than EverWe tested the new fourth-generation Amazon Echo and Echo Dot, speakers that further consolidate Amazon’s dominant position.
It’s just what happened to Live TV, the option that was available in the USA to watch live television channels from Amazon Fire TV.
Live channels arrive in Spain

It is obvious that thanks to this type of emission we will not need to have an antenna connection on a television to watch free-to-air TV, the usual DTT channels. Among them, those of RTVE, such as La 1 and La 2, or those of Atresplayer, such as Antena 3 and La Sexta, stand out. It is something different from the channels that have been released recently.
This new section, called Live, will be available on all Fire Sticks, regardless of the type of product we have, normal, 4K, etc. We will have sections such as “Recent channels”, “Live sports”, “Breaking news” …
Alexa routines arrive on Amazon Fire TV
Another novelty is the compatibility of the Amazon Fire TV with the routines of Alexa. From now on we can use these shortcuts that combine certain actions from the television.
For example, I use a so-called “Good morning” that what it does is tell me the weather of the day, read my agenda and turn on two of the lights in the house, the ones I use when I work.
In the coming weeks these functions will reach all Amazon Fire TVs that are sold in Spain.
The entry The Amazon Fire TV is updated in Spain with live television and Alexa routines appears first in El Androide Libre.
