Unlike Amazon's other products, Cube supports cable TV boxes, thus allowing users to change the channel by virtue of uttering a vocal command. This could be done with hardware like the Harmony Hub, but now it's all built into Amazon's echo system, with less to setup.
It's honestly surprising it has taken Amazon almost four years to combine the functionality of a Fire TV digital media player and Echo smart speaker into one extremely versatile Alexa-controlled device. Simply ask it to play music, read the news, control your connected house or even tell a joke, and Alexa does as you ask.
Alexa's responses on the Fire TV Cube will be optimized for the big screen and accompanied by rich visual information. There are also apps available in the United States for ESPN, Fox Now, Showtime, Starz, PlayStation Vue, CBS All Access, and NBC.

The Cube has access to all the same apps and services as other Fire TV devices, such as Netflix, Hulu and, of course, the entire gamut of Amazon Prime Video content.
The Cube lets you control almost all aspects of your television-watching experience using nothing but your voice. "And, it's just the beginning".
Amazon's Fire TV Cube media player is indeed cube-shaped.
Echo Show has eight microphones and beam-forming technology so it can hear you from across the room-even while music is playing. Just say, "Alexa, switch to channel 31"; "Alexa, watch ESPN"; or "Alexa, tune to NBC".
