It looks like yesterday’s short lived sale on the 2nd-gen Amazon Fire TV was pretty popular. The new Fire TV is now listed as out of stock for the first time, with an expected availability date of October 19th. This stock shortage could explain why yesterday’s sale only lasted half a day. It looks like, once again, Amazon underestimated the popularity of a Fire TV sale. While the new device has been suffering from poor initial customer reviews, due to some launch day software bugs that Amazon is no doubt frantically stomping out, it doesn’t seem to be effecting the device’s sales much. Since the Fire TV Gaming Edition comes packaged in it’s own retail box, its stock is unaffected by yesterday’s sale and remains in stock.
