Faster streaming performance
Buffering is horrible for a streamlined viewing experience. Advanced Streaming and Prediction (ASAP) capability in Fire TV learns what movie and shows are liked by customers and gets then ready for instant watching. Using ASAP technology, the streaming performance improves by 50 percent. Coupled with High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) technology, which means it delivers 1080p high definition from Amazon Video using less bandwidth than ever before, these enhancements are directed towards making the “dreaded buffering spinner” – a thing of the past.
We aim to create the best 10-foot experience for our customers and developers by making content discovery and engagement easy and enjoyable. Additional rows in the browsing experience, such as the Featured Rotator, Your Apps and Games, and Recommended for You rows, create more opportunities for your apps and games to gain visibility with the right customers.
