Amazon Fire TV Stick is a competitor to Google’s Chromecast, Roku and many other streaming devices. With Amazon Prime Video having entered India, it seems like the right time to launch the Amazon Fire line of products such as tablets, Fire TV Stick or even the Fire TV box. Amazon announced the launch of ‘Baahubali: The Lost Legends’, an animated series based on ‘Baahubali’ movie franchise. This new series will be exclusively available for Amazon Prime members.
