Amazon revealed a few more of their upcoming Black Friday deals. You can see the full list of known deals here, but the most significant news is that both models of the Fire TV Recast will be on sale during Black Friday.
The smaller 500GB Fire TV Recast will be $179.99. That’s a savings of $50 off the regular price of $229.99. This is the 2-tuner model that allows you to record 2 channels at once, watch 2 channels live at once, or watch 1 live channel and record another at once. The 500GB model can store about 75 hours of HD video. You can also use it to watch 2 recordings while recording 2 channels, all at the same time.
The larger 1TB Fire TV Recast will be $219.99. That’s a savings of $60 off the regular price of $279.99, so you’re saving a bit more if you buy the better device. This is the 4-tuner model that allows you to record 4 channels at once. You can still only watch 2 live channels at once, but you can use the other 2 tuners to simultaneously record 2 more channels. If you’re watching 2 recordings, which is still the limit, you can be recording 4 live channels at once. The 1TB model can store about 150 hours of HD video.
Amazon has not said when the Fire TV Recast will go on sale. All we know for sure is that its sale will start between November 16-23. All of the other Fire TV device sales are starting on November 18, so there’s a pretty good chance that the Fire TV Recast sales will start that date as well.
Amazon has told me that the Fire TV Recast sale will indeed start on November 18th.
We also don’t know if the Fire TV Recast (500GB) + Fire TV Stick 4K bundle, which also includes an HD antenna, will be on sale. At $249.99, that bundle currently costs $30 less than buying just the Fire TV Recast and Fire TV Stick 4K separately. Since the Fire TV Stick 4K will be $34.99 during Black Friday, and the Recast will be $179.99, adding those together and subtracting $30 means there’s a chance the bundle will be $184.97.
