Amazon Fire TV 3rd Gen User Review

  • dyson2004
    No Atmos yet
    Review of Amazon Fire TV 3rd Gen Streamer by dyson2004, Oct 25, 2017.
    My new Fire TV 3 arrived today and I plugged it into the HDMI port on my amp. I own the old Amazon boxes so it was easy to install. It is Atmos ready but, unbelievably, there is no Atmos content available on Amazon yet. Also, if I go to Netflix on the new Amazon box, it plays Okja in 5.1. If I watch Okja via my Xbox One, it plays in Atmos.
    I rang Netflix and they said they have no plans to enable Atmos on the Fire TV. Crazy.
    I am disappointed with this new Amazon box because of this.

    Pros

    • Small, light, simple to install

    Cons

    • It is Atmos ready but there is no content in Atmos that is available to play.
