Amazon's Fire TV Finds Some More Voice

The new Amazon Fire TV set-top got high marks from critics for its voice "search" recognition feature--this one actually seems to understand the things it's told--but was scorched for only making it available for titles and actors whose films or TV shows are available on Amazon or Amazon Prime.

On Thursday, it expanded the menu to include Crackle, Showtime Anytime and Hulu Plus. The one big one still missing: Netflix.

And it once again promised that other content offerings and games will soon be available, from developers including Telltale Games, Halfbrick, Pixowl, Disney Interactive, Minority Media, Paradox Interactive, Gaiam, AllRecipes and Twitch.

Amazon had advertised it would provide MLB streaming, but three weeks into the baseball season, it's still not there.
Dave Limp, vice president, Amazon Devices stated: “Customers are telling us they love it, developers are building for it, and we’re working hard to expand existing features and build new ones."
