Toshiba has just released a new series of HD Fire TV Edition televisions that run Amazon’s Fire TV operating system. What differentiates these new TVs from the ones Toshiba released earlier this year is that these new TVs are 1080p only, so they do not support 4K Ultra HD, and they have more analog input/output capabilities. These new TVs are available in a 32-inch size for $179.99, a 43-inch size for $299.99, and a 49-inch size for $349.99. Read more ›
It’s a bit eclipsed by yesterday’s arrival of the Amazon Fire TV Cube, but the new 2nd generation Fire TV Edition televisions from Toshiba have been released today. Thanks to Amazon’s partnership with Best Buy, you should be able to find these TVs on display in Best Buy stores across the US if you want to check them out in person. They come in a 43-inch size for $329.99, a 50-inch size for $399.99, and a 55-inch size for $479.99. These TVs run Amazon’s Fire OS operating system by default, giving you the full Fire TV experience built-in. The advantage of these TVs over a stand-alone Fire TV device is having over-the-air channels available alongside streaming content, right in the Fire TV interface.
