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 ›
Toshiba’s three non-4K Fire TV Edition televisions are currently on sale at all-time low prices. The best deal among them is the 49-inch 1080p TV which launched at $349.99 but is currently available for $279.99. This is the first time this TV has ever been priced this low. If you’re looking for a smaller size, the 43-inch 720p TV is $249.99, which is a $50 discount off of its regular price of $299.99. The smallest 32-inch 720p TV has received the smallest discount of $30, bringing it down from its regular price of $179.99 to $149.99. All of these TVs share the same components, apart from their screen sizes, and offer the full Fire TV experience built directly into the TV itself. You can read more about the specs of these TVs here.

It appears as though Canada will soon see the release of their first Fire TV EDition televisions. While searching for more information about Toshiba’s new non-UHD Fire TV Edition televisions that were released earlier this week, I stumbled on product pages for the Canadian versions of Toshiba’s Fire TV Edition televisions, which have not yet been released. Both the 4K UHD televisions and the newer non-UHD Canadian variants are present on Toshiba’s website, which is a good indication that these TVs will soon be released. Read more ›
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 ›
The Toshiba Fire TV Edition televisions are receiving a new 220.127.116.11 (build 738566532) software update that adds a highly requested new option to the settings menu. With this update, you can now configure the TV to remain on the input that was last used when it is powered on. By default, the TV will always display the Fire TV home screen when it is powered on, regardless of the state that it was in when it was powered off. To change this behavior, you can now go to Settings > Display & Sounds > Power On and change the setting to Last Input to prevent the TV from loading the home screen every time. It is unknown if the older Element Fire TV Edition televisions will also be receiving this option in a future update.
When Prime Day kicked off, the main deal for the 2nd-gen 2018 Toshiba Fire TV Edition televisions was the 50-inch size for $289.99. At $110 off the regular price, it was the deal to get since the other two sizes only dropped by $30. Now, Amazon has just reduced the 43-inch size by another $50, making the 43-inch Toshiba Fire TV Edition television on sale for $249.99. At $80 off the regular price of $329.99, this is the new lowest price the 43-inch size has ever been. It’s lower than even the 1st-gen 2017 Element Fire TV Edition televisions ever reached. The 55-inch size is still $449.99, which is just $30 off the regular price. During last year’s Prime Day, Amazon hardly reduced the price of the largest 1st-gen Fire TV Edition television, so they may be doing that again and focusing sales on the smaller sizes.
Amazon has put the Toshiba 50-inch Fire TV Edition television on sale for $289.99 for Prime Day. This is the brand-new 2018 model that was released just a few weeks ago and it is the first time it has ever been on sale. At $110 off the regular price, this is a great deal if you want all the exact same capabilities as the Fire TV but built into the TV with access to your over-the-air antenna channels right along all of your regular Fire TV content. The two other sizes have each dropped by $30 as well, but this 50-inch size is clearly the stand-out deal. The 43-inch is $299.99 and the 55-inch is $449.99.
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.
Now that more details about the new 2018 2nd-generation Fire TV Edition televisions by Toshiba have been revealed and the TVs are available for pre-order, here’s a look at how they stack up against last years Fire TV Edition televisions by Element. The new TVs are about 27% cheaper than the TVs they’re replacing. While the two versions are very similar in many aspects, a few things have been cut in order to reduce the price by more than a quarter. Here’s a detailed look at each TVs specs and features.
