“Amazon is expanding Alexa’s voice control capabilities to command what you watch on TV. Following Alexa’s newly released skill that lets you control Dish Hopper receivers, Amazon has now added Alexa voice control of Fire TV players, Fire TV Sticks, and Fire TV Edition smart TVs. While control of Fire TV media players and Sticks is limited to search and playback, control of Fire Edition TVs is more extensive and useful. Alexa users will still need to use their Fire TV remote controls for now. Nonetheless, it’s Amazon’s first step toward a future where Alexa can completely control our home theaters.”

PlayStation Vue Internet TV Service Review

“The last menu option is My Vue, which highlights your favorite channels and recently watched programs. More importantly, it’s where you’ll find the list of shows that you’ve flagged to record. That’s right, Vue has a cloud-based DVR function that allows you to record, rewind, and fast-forward through shows, and it assembles both recorded and on-demand episodes together in the My Vue menu. The DVR function isn’t very advanced; you can’t designate “record once” versus “record all” or set it so that only news episodes are recorded, and it only stores recorded episodes for up to 28 days”

“Picture quality will depend on your broadband speed. Sony recommends at least 10 Mbps for the best experience and a minimum of 5 Mbps. I felt the quality of the Vue streamed image was comparable on my 65-inch UHD TV to what Dish Network delivers via satellite, but the picture wasn’t as crisp and detailed as an over-the-air broadcast for a channel like CBS. Signal reliability was excellent for me–enough so that I never really thought about the fact that I was watching Internet TV versus satellite or cable.”
