I imagine that most people who’ve purchased the Amazon Fire TV Cube are eager to set up their new gadget immediately after it arrives, but if you’ve put yours aside for when you have more time, you’ll probably want to get to it out of the box before July 1st. That’s because everyone who activates a Fire TV Cube before 11:59 p.m. ET on July 1st will automatically receive a $10 Amazon Video credit to spend on rentals and purchases of movies and TV shows. Just log into a new Fire TV Cube with your Amazon account by the deadline and you’ll receive an email informing you of the credit. You can read the terms and conditions of the offer here, but the most important thing to know, other than the activation deadline, is that the $10 credit expires on August 31st, 2018.
Thanks for the heads up! Just got mine delivered today and wasn’t even aware of this!
Slow shipping for my $1! Should be here on June 29th. Thanks for heads-up too.
I bought 3 cubes on preorder and I’m returning all of them.
All 3 were having audio problems in Kodi. After a few show plays audio starts to cut out. Rebooting fixes the issue.
Going back to my rooted gen 2 boxes they are easily 30-40% faster without the audio problems!
FireTV Cube is a fail! Absolutely hate not being able to change the wake word! It would bump me out of my shows every time someone said Alexa to my Echos.
You can change the Fire TV Cube’s wake word in the Alexa app.
Elias, I will be interested in seeing whether you can get your Cube to work with a Harmony Hub (you mentioned you’d try it). I know that officially it’s not supported, but I see others saying they’ve gotten it to work. But I’ve had absolutely no luck at all getting it to pair. Since my system, including a Nvidia Shield TV, is pretty dependent on my Harmony hub/remote set up if I can’t get it working with the Cube I’ll probably return the Cube since it really offers no great upgrade from my prior FTV3/Echo Dot set up. Other than it just looks really cool… :)
