Owners of Samsung TVs released in 2011 are reporting that they’re receiving emails from Amazon with unique promo codes to buy Fire TVs at a heavily discounted price. Amazon is telling customers of select Samsung TVs that the Prime Instant Video app built into their TV will stop working on September 14th. They are offering promo codes that slash the Fire TV price by 50% to make up for the loss. Right now it appears only UK customers are receiving these emails, but customers in other countries may also be offered the same deal. If you’ve accessed Prime Instant Video content through a Samsung TV from 2011, you may have a nice Fire TV discount waiting for you in your email inbox. The Fire TV is still on sale in the UK and, the US Amazon listing for the Fire TV continues to flip flop back and forth between unavailable and back in stock at the end of August.
