Amazon Fire TV’s Comic-Con 2018 activation “Fast Forward to the Future” is MUSTSEE for TV-lovers. Plus, get a chance to enjoy some of their latest products!
One of the best (AND WORST) things about SDCC is that, in addition to the events inside the convention center, there are tons of activities for fans outside, too. So much to do, and so little time. *SIGH*
With that said, you better believe that I’ll make my way to Amazon Fire TV’s fan activation.
Amazon Fire TV is bringing “Fast Forward to the Future” to SDCC, where guests can expect an immersive, hands-on experience with the future of television. This also includes a look at the full Fire TV portfolio, including the new Fire TV Cube and Toshiba 4K Ultra HD Fire TV Edition!
As a massive television fan, this activation sounds perfect, especially since we’ll have a chance to escape into our favorite shows, like HBO’s Game of Thrones, NBC’s The Good Place, and Prime Video’s Jack Ryan.
“Fast Forward to the Future” takes place on the corner of 7th Ave and Market St, beginning Thursday, July 19 through Sunday July 22, 9:00AM – 6:00PM (Sunday hours end at 5:00PM).
Check out the details below and make sure to stop by next week! And if you won’t be in San Diego, don’t worry. We So Nerdy will be at “Fast Forward to the Future” and sharing all the goodies!

“Fast Forward to the Future” will take you on a journey through the evolution of television, showcasing how Fire TV now makes it easier than ever before to watch all of your favorite TV shows and movies, control smart home devices, use Alexa skills, listen to music, and more.
The focal point of the experience will be a larger-than-life Fire TV Cube. Inside, visitors can try Fire TV Cube for themselves, and use power their TV on and off, find and control content, change the volume, switch to cable, and more —all with just their voice.
The activation includes vignettes like the “Device Garden,” where antiquated technologies will be given a place to call home; a graveyard of sorts to commemorate devices we once knew and loved before they were overshadowed by newer, more user-friendly technologies. Hang out in the “Backyard Cinema Club,’ where you will be able to try the Fire TV Stick in a reimagined outdoor theater created from retired VHS tapes. As an homage to all the fan-favorite content available on Fire TV, you will also be able to take a stroll down “Fire TV Street,” where you can uncover hidden photo moments and surprises along the way. To top it all off, the reimagined neighborhood will dedicate a corner of the block to Comic-Con’s most prized-possession, HBO’s iconic Iron Throne.
After stepping through a 16 foot Fire TV home screen, you will enter the “Stress-Free Streaming” zone where you can unwind with some of your favorite shows. The silent streaming party will bring the Fire TV experience to life with immersive lounges inspired by hit shows from partners including Prime Video’s “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan,” HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” and NBC’s “The Good Place.” In addition, you can recharge with readily available mobile chargers and a tempting selection of show-themed mocktails to sip on.
