Win a new Apple TV contest! Because, unlike FireTV, it's available internationally!

I can't get Amazon's new FireTV in Canada. That's not a surprise since I can't get Amazon MP3 or Amazon Video in Canada yet either.

Apple TV vs. Amazon Fire TV: Which one should you get?

Fire TV, is Amazon's answer to the Apple TV, and to other options like the Roku 3 and the Google Chromecast. Fire TV brings Amazon Instant Video, Showtime Anytime, and tons of games to your big screen TV. Of course it won't play iTunes content, which means anything you've bought on your iPhone or iPad is of no help to you. If you're not big on iTunes, or if you just want to try something new, could the Fire TV be a better choice?
