Amazon Fire TV Cube is available for pre-order starting today for $119.99 and ships with an IR extender cable and Ethernet adapter beginning on June 21.

Amazon says Prime members can pre-order the Fire TV Cube on Thursday and Friday for a limited time price of $89.99.

With its infrared emitters, the Cube is also the only Fire TV device that can control a TV's volume and switch channels on a cable or satellite box.

Apart from all the benefits of a universal remote, Fire TV Cube combines Fire Stick and Amazon Echo into a single device. It even integrates with your cable TV box from leading providers such as Comcast, DISH and DIRECTV.

Not only did the blue bar at the top edge of the Fire TV Clube light up with its signature pulsing glow, but the TV connected to the device - and the standing lights to the left and right of the TV - also turned on. It's also been just over four years since the the company first released its Fire TV set-top video box.

Amazon Echo relies on Microsoft's Bing search engine and Wikipedia, while Google Home uses the company's own Google Search. This interface will look familiar to owners of Amazon's Echo Show. And with Fire TV Cube, many Alexa responses are optimized for the big screen and accompanied with rich visual information, allowing you to view your smart home camera feeds, watch video flash briefings, view sports scores, see extended weather forecasts, and watch trailers for movies playing in nearby theaters.

Amazon is launching the Fire TV Cube on June 21 for $120.

You can use your voice to not only stream content but change the channel on your cable box, thanks to the IR blaster.
