As Amazon often does after Black Friday / Cyber Monday, they’ve released some stats on their device sales during the big shopping weekend. For starters, Amazon says that Fire TV sales are up more than 6x year over year this holiday shopping weekend. This comes at no surprise since last year the Fire TV went on sale for only a few hours on Cyber Monday, whereas this year, it remained on sale for a full 5 days, from the start of Thanksgiving day on Thursday, to the end of Cyber Monday. They also say the Fire TV has been the #1 streaming media player in the US , across all retailers, from July through October. The Fire TV Stick was the second best selling product “across all of the products available on Amazon.com this Black Friday.” It was second only to the 7″ Fire Tablet, which Amazon says they’ve now sold over 2 million of since its launch, making it their fastest selling tablet ever. Last but not least, the Amazon Echo was the best selling product over $100 on all of Amazon.com during Black Friday.
