Best Buy has released three new Fire TV Edition televisions under their Insignia house brand. These new TVs are the least expensive Fire TV Edition models due to their small screen sizes and lack of 4K support. The models released include a 720p 24-inch size for $149.99, a 720p 32-inch size for $169.99, and a 1080p 39-inch size for $249.99.
These new TVs all have generally the same ports and specs. They have 3 HDMI ports, one of which supports ARC, and composite video ports. Audio options include an optical audio port and an analog audio port in the form of a 3.5mm headphone jack. There’s also an RF antenna connection for the built-in TV tuner.
Connectivity for these TVs comes in the form of a 10/100 Ethernet port and 802.11a/b/g/n/ac WiFi that supports 2×2 MIMO on 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. There’s one USB 2.0 port for peripherals and external storage which will increase how long live TV can be paused and rewound.
Under the hood are the same Amlogic T950Z quad-core CPU and Mali-450 GPU found in Toshiba’s inexpensive Fire TV Edition televisions. These TVs have 8GB of internal storage and 1 GB of DDR 4 RAM. They run Fire OS 6, which is based on Android 7.1.
The remote that comes with these TVs is the same one that comes with all 2nd-generation Fire TV Edition televisions. It has a microphone for Alexa, directions navigation buttons, and playback buttons. There’s also power and volume buttons for the TV, a mute button, and a guide button that brings up the channel guide with 2 weeks of free schedule information. Along the bottom are shortcut buttons for Prime Video, Netflix, HBO, and PlayStation Vue.
With the release of these latest TVs, there are now 12 Fire TV Edition television models available that range in size from 24 to 55 inches and rang in price from $149.99 to $399.99. All of these TVs are available today from Amazon or Best Buy.
