What if your Kindle Fire was your TV's best buddy? That's the idea behind Fire TV, which runs the Android-based Amazon Fire OS from the Kindle Fire HDX on the same sort of quad core CPU you'd find in an Android tablet or smartphone. Fire TV isn't for reading books of course--that would be truly weird on your HD TV. Instead it embodies everything Amazon envisioned when it started making Kindle Fire color LCD tablets, a line that's very distinct from the Kindle Paperwhite line of E-Ink ebook readers. Fire products, both Kindle and TV, are designed for streaming movies and TV and for playing games.
