This is a strong competitor to Apple TV. It has many of the same features but I'd assume it has an edge with Alexa over Siri (at least at this point) for voice-based interaction. It's also about half the cost (with a Prime membership).

"Alexa, watch Bjorn." "OMG No.. I said Bjorn!" "Alexa, stop! Alexa, cancel!" "How do I turn this stupid thing off?" Unplugs TV.

@arlogilbert More problems to come with my indian accent.
Interesting. I've had a lot of success with an Echo Dot, Fire Stick and putting my 10 year old TV attached to an Alexa controlled plug. I can get Alexa to turn the TV on/off, play, pause, etc. Obviously not the same, but close. I just hope it has a better Netflix integration. Want to watch a programme on Netflix, it'll try giving you the paid for Amazon Video version 😕

This looks cool. I wonder if you'll be able to pair it to bluetooth headphones? Also, does anyone know if this will be available in the UK?
Oooh, that video made me want to get one
