"On price, though, the $120 TV Cube is almost a steal when compared to the Apple TV 4K price, which costs 50 percent more, at $180. "

Correction. The cost is 1/3 more for Apple TV 4k ($60); not 50% more.

My intent here is to say that the Apple TV 4K costs 1.5x as much as the Fire TV Cube.

I'm not trying to say that The Fire TV Cube is 2/3 the price of the Apple TV, though, yes, that is true.

The YouTube app is now available on the Fire TV Cube. When I asked for YouTube, I was prompted to download and install. After activation via Goggle, I was able to see my YouTube home page (with history, etc.) via the "Launch YouTube" voice command. I believe this was part of the most recent software update.

There's an app called YouTube, but it's really just a link to open YouTube via a browser. That's not enough.

Thanks for the great review.

Curious if you think the voice control for turning on the tv would conflict with an Alexa controlled Harmony system. I say Alexa turn on tv for my living room system. If I put the Cube in another room, will those commands conflict?
