Amazon has begun shipping its latest Fire TV stick, and along with the new hardware the company announced its biggest update to the Fire TVs user interface since its launch in 2014 is on the way. Amazon describes the new user interface as a "cinematic experience" and says that it will show trailers and screenshots without the need to jump in and out of apps. The new interface also supports a customizable apps list on the home page, which should make it easier to quickly access the games and apps you use the most.

The new interface will also include a "Your Videos" section, according to SlashGear, that will display all of the content you own or subscribe to, so you don't have to guess if you're about to pay to watch a movie you already own. Although Amazon hasn't given a specific release date for the update, which will be served over-the-air, the company did say that every Fire TV device will receive the redesign free of charge before the end of the year, starting with the latest generation Fire TV stick and set-top box.
