Target has just put two sizes of the Amazon Fire TV Edition televisions by Element on sale. The 50-inch TV is $299.99 and the 55-inch TV is $399.99. These prices match the prices Amazon had during Black Friday which sold out. It seems like stock at Target is very limited so act fast if you’re interested and the TV is available in your area. If you use a Target REDcard for the purchase, you’ll receive an additional 5% off of the order. Target is also matching Amazon’s sale for the 4K HDR Fire TV for $49.99. The Fire TV Stick is, however, cheaper at Amazon at $29.99.
The Element 65-inch Fire TV Edition television is back on sale for $650 on Amazon. That’s the largest size that the TV is available in and at $250 off the regular price, this sale matches the lowest price that the TV has ever been. I’m a big fan of my Fire TV Edition television and still consider it to be the best Fire TV experience available, thanks to the built-in TV tuner that Amazon has done a great job integrating into Fire OS.
Amazon had several sales on the Fire TV Edition televisions during the holidays. Those sales resulted in the 43-inch, 50-inch, and 55-inch TV sizes, which were the most heavily reduced, to sell out. When they remained out of stock through the end of the year, some, including myself, wondered if they’d never return and be replaced by new models. That’s apparently not the case just yet because all sizes have just come back in stock this morning. Read more ›
Amazon has the Element 65-inch Fire TV Edition television on sale for $650. This is the new lowest price that this TV has ever been, which is 28% off the retail price. The lowest this TV has ever been before this sale was $764.99 during this past Black Friday, so this is a significant drop in price. The three other sizes that this TV comes in have been out of stock ever since they sold out during Black Friday, so it seems like once these TVs are gone, they’re not coming back. I’ve found evidence that Amazon is working on 2nd generation Fire TV Edition televisions, but there’s no telling when those will be released. I’m at CES this week, where these TVs were announced last year, and there haven’t been any new Fire TV Edition televisions revealed, so it seems like it’ll be a while before we see a replacement to these 1st generation TVs running Amazon’s Fire OS. If you’ve been eyeing these Fire TV Edition televisions and are looking to go big with the largest screen size that they come in, this might be your last chance to get one at an unbeatable price for quite a while.
Amazon is currently working on the next generation of televisions running their Fire TV operating system. The first Fire TV Edition televisions, made by Element and Westinghouse, were announced nearly a year ago at CES 2017 and began shipping to customers around the middle of this year. With CES 2018 just around the corner, it looks like we might see a new set of TVs running Amazon’s Fire OS. Read more ›
A new software update is starting to roll out to nearly all Fire TV models. The new update is marked as version 18.104.22.168 with a build value of 587600920. While Amazon has not yet edited their Fire TV Software Update page to include this latest update, they have added the new update to their Fire TV Source Code Notice page. That page indicates that this update is rolling out to the Fire TV 1, Fire TV 2, Fire TV Stick 1, Fire TV Stick 2, and Fire TV Edition televisions. The page has never been updated to include the Fire TV 3, so it’s unknown if those devices are also being updated. Read more ›
Target has just put two sizes of the Element Fire TV Edition televisions on sale. The
50-inch is $299.99, which is 45% off of its regular price of $549.99. The 55-inch is $399.99, which is 36% off its regular price of $629.99. These prices match the 2nd lowest price that these TVs have ever been, which was during this past Black Friday. If you have a Target REDcard, you’ll receive an additional 5% off. There are also single use 20% off coupon codes floating around that you can try to get your hands on.
A new software update has been rolling out to the Fire TV Edition televisions. The new update maintains the same 22.214.171.124 version number as the previous update but increases the build number from 587444520 to 587550120. There doesn’t appear to be any major changes or additions, which tends to be the case when only the build number changes. This update likely fixes bugs or possibly prepares the TV for future features, like the new Silk Browser. If you notice any changes or fixes, be sure to mention them in the comments below.
For Cyber Monday, the Fire TV Edition televisions are back in stock and are reduced to the lowest price they’ve ever been. Most notably, the 55-inch size is $339.99. That’s 46% off the regular price. It was this price once before in the early hours of Thanksgiving morning and it sold out in a few hours, so act fast if you’re interested because it will surely sell out at this price. The 43-inch TV is $382.49 and the 65-inch is $764.99. Those prices are 15% off and are also the lowest prices they have ever been.
They’re back! The Element Fire TV Edition televisions just came back in stock a few minutes ago. The 50-inch is still $299.99, which is 45% off the regular price of $549.99 and the 55-inch is $399.99, which is 37% off the regular price of $629.99. Both of these sizes have sold out every time they’ve been available at these prices, so act fast if you’re interested. The 43-inch is $427.49 and the 65-inch is $854.99, which are both 5% off of their regular prices and not much of a deal.
