Passover

In the narrative of the Exodus, the Bible tells that God helped the Children of Israel escape from their slavery in Egypt by inflicting ten plagues upon the ancient Egyptians before the Pharaoh would release his Israelite slaves; the tenth and worst of the plagues was the death of the Egyptian first-born.

The Israelites were instructed to mark the doorposts of their homes with the blood of a slaughtered spring lamb and, upon seeing this, the spirit of the Lord knew to pass over the first-born in these homes, hence the English name of the holiday.

RealPlayer Cloud is Now Available on Amazon’s Fire TV

Fire TV, the long-anticipated set-top box from Amazon is finally here! It plugs into your HDTV for easy and instant access to RealPlayer Cloud, as well as Netflix, Prime Instant Video, Hulu Plus, WatchESPN, SHOWTIME, low-cost video rentals, and more. Fire TV also brings photos, music, and games to the living room.  This is great news for RealPlayer Cloud fans, as they now have another way to watch their video collections, along with Roku and Chromecast, on their big screens.

FireTV

The Fire TV launch seems like the next logical step for Amazon since they moved into the streaming video space and have been competing with both Netflix and Apple’s iTunes. They also began producing original content, such as Alpha House, but have yet to achieve the blockbuster status Netflix’s original programs House of Cards and Orange is the New Black have garnered. Amazon has recently greenlit several new shows as well that will air later this year or in early 2015. The new set-top box competes with Roku and and AppleTV to stream movies and shows from the Internet to your TV.  Fire TV, available starting today, retails for $99.

Fire TV Console and Remote

RealPlayer Cloud will be one of the first apps integrated with Fire TV at its launch. Because Fire TV was built upon an Android operating system, development of the RealPlayer Cloud app for this platform was an easier process than what is normal for other new platforms. As with all devices RealPlayer Cloud supports, the app’s revolutionary SurePlay™ technology automatically formats videos for the highest quality viewing experience, so no extra work is needed on the consumer’s part to view their videos on Fire TV. Get the RealPlayer Cloud app for Fire TV now.
