    I'm pretty excited about the Amazon Fire TV! It looks really promising. Just wondering if any of you that already have your hot little hands on it can tell me if it comes with an HDMI cable or if I will need to buy my own

    No, it does not come with an HDMI cable. However, neither does the Roku, Apple TV, WDTV, or any other comparable STB.

    I think mostly to keep prices down but also likely also to package sizes nice and small and easily manageable. Imagine trying to cram a decent quality 3 or 6 foot HDMI cable into the tiny package these devices come in.

    Besides, consumers would likely complain that the cable was too short (3ft) or too long (6ft) for their needs.
