Some prices are lower at Best Buy. The post has been updated with the lowest price of each model and where to get it.
Most of the Fire TV Edition televisions from Insignia and Toshiba have just gone on sale for Black Friday this morning. These are the TVs that come with Amazon’s fire TV operating system built in. The size of the discount varies greatly for each model and size, but easily the best deal of the bunch is the Insignia 55-inch 4K TV for $249.99. That’s a massive $200 off the regular price. Another great deal is the Insignia 24-inch TV for $99.99. While it’s only a 720p set, it would still make a great compact all-in-one TV for a kitchen or small space. Check out the full list of Fire TV Edition deals that are already live, as well as 3 that will be live in the near future. Read more ›

Get this Fire TV Stick 4K Deal
The Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K is on sale for $34.99 for Black Friday. This is the first time that it has ever been on sale. The Fire TV Stick 4K is a great buy at its regular price of $49.99, so it is an absolute steal at this price. Get your order in as soon as possible because Amazon is going to sell a ridiculous number of these at this price. The Fire TV Stick 4K is the most powerful streaming device in their current line up. It comes with the new Alexa voice remote with power and volume buttons included. I can’t say enough good things about the new Fire TV Stick 4K and the new remote. The only thing you’ll probably regret about buying it at this price is that you didn’t buy more of them. Also on sale is the regular Fire TV Stick for $24.99, the Fire TV Cube for $59.99, and the Fire TV Recast for $179.99.
Get this Fire TV Recast Deal
The Amazon Fire TV Recast is on sale for $179.99. This is the first time that Amazon’s over-the-air tuner and DVR has ever been on sale. It is $50 off of the regular price of $229.99. This price is for the 500GB model that has 2 tuners. The 1TB model with 4 tuners is also on sale for $219.99. That price is $60 off of its regular price of $279.99. I think it’s well worth the extra $40 for the upgraded model, not so much for the double storage that you get, since Amazon will soon be adding support for external hard drives to the Fire TV Recast. I think it’s the 2 additional tuners you get that makes it worth going for the top-of-the-line model. The extra tuners mean that it’ll be rare that you have recording or viewing conflicts, but with only 2 tuners, you may get frustrated at how many times multiple programs air at the same time. Both Fire TV Recasts are compatible with every Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, and Fire TV Edition television that has ever been released. Don’t forget to pick up an HD Antenna if you need it. This 50-mile Antenna for $24.99 is the best selling one on Amazon. Also on sale is the Fire TV Stick 4K for $34.99, the regular Fire TV Stick for $24.99, and the Fire TV Cube for $59.99.
Get this Fire TV Cube Deal
The Amazon Fire TV Cube is on sale for $59.99 for Black Friday. This is the new bundle that comes with the new Alexa Voice Remote which now has power, volume, and mute buttons. This price is half off of the regular price of $119.99 and is the new lowest price that the Fire TV Cube with the new remote has ever been. This is a fantastic price and it’s difficult to decide which is the better buy, this Fire TV Cube deal or the Fire TV Stick 4K for $34.99. While the Fire TV Stick 4K is slightly more powerful and supports Dolby Vision, the Fire TV Cube has hands-free voice control, contains IR blasters for universal remote capabilities, comes with an Ethernet adapter, supports external storage better, and more. Both are great devices with their own advantages and you’ll be happy with either one at these fantastic prices. Also on sale is the regular Fire TV Stick for $24.99 and the Fire TV Recast for $179.99.
Get this Fire TV Stick Deal
The regular Amazon Fire TV Stick is on sale for $24.99 for Black Friday. This is the older 1080p Fire TV Stick and not the new Fire TV Stick 4K that came out a few weeks ago. This Fire TV Sick is a great device, but it is absolutely well worth spend an extra $10 to get the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K on sale for $34.99. Forget about the Fire TV Stick 4K being an all-around better device, it’s worth the extra money just because you get the new Alexa remote with the Fire TV Stick 4K. It is worth the extra $10 alone to have power, volume, and mute buttons on the remote. For reference, the Fire TV Stick was $19.99 during this past Prime Day, so this deal is $5 more than the lowest price the regular Fire TV Stick has ever been. Also on sale is the Fire TV Cube for $59.99, and the Fire TV Recast for $179.99.
A reader asked me to test the Amazon Fire TV Recast’s power usage, so I pulled out the trusty Kill A Watt meter and ran a few tests. Even though the included power supply is capable of outputting 50 watts of power, I found that the Fire TV Recast used between 9 to 15 watts of power, depending on what it was doing a the time. Here’s what that means to your wallet and some more detailed figures. Read more ›
The Amazon Black Friday Deal on a 3-pack of Echo Dots for $70 has already ended but there are several ways to get a cheap or free Echo Dot when purchased in a bundle. Among the best is the Fire TV Stick 4K w/ Echo Dot 3 for $59.98. Here are the best Echo Dot bundle deals that are already live for Black Friday. Read more ›
The Amazon Fire TV Recast is a unique device in the Fire TV family because it has a spinning hard drive inside. This means that you should take a bit of care when cutting power to the device because, theoretically, data on the hard drive could be corrupted if the Fire TV Recast loses power while it’s actively writing to the drive. Since the Fire TV Recast cannot be shut down or turned off, it’s likely that Amazon built-in safeguards for unexpected power loss, but it can’t hurt to be extra cautious. Here’s the safest way I’ve found to reboot and/or unplug the Fire TV Recast. Read more ›
Get this Echo Dot Deal
Several of Amazon’s Black Friday Deals go live today and among the best of them is the Amazon Echo Dot 3-Pack for $69.97. This is for the all-new 3rd generation Echo Dot which sounds considerably better than the previous model. The Echo Dot will be going on sale individually on November 22nd for $24 each, but if you’re in the market for 3 of them, this deal saves you an extra $2 and gets you them a little early. Just add any combination of Black, Gray, or White colored Echo Dots to your cart and you’ll see the $80 discount automatically appear at checkout.
