Get the TCL Fire TV Soundbar for $75
Amazon has just put the TCL Fire TV Edition Soundbar on sale for $75 for Black Friday. This is the new lowest price that this soundbar has ever been, beating out the last best deal by a whopping $32. This soundbar normally sells for $199.99, so at 62% off, this is easily one of the best Fire TV deals we’ve seen during Black Friday. This soundbar by TCL runs the Fire TV operating system and all of its capabilities are identical to having a Fire TV Stick 4K connected to it, so it supports 4K video at 60fps, Dolby Vision, HDR10+, and HDR10. Since the Fire TV Stick 4K is on sale for $29.99, you’re essentially just paying $45 for the soundbar aspect, which is a ridiculous bargain. The soundbar features 6 speakers and an integrated subwoofer that together produce 120 watts of output power. It comes with Amazon’s latest Fire TV Edition remote, which I much prefer to the old one, as well as an HDMI cable, optical cable, and mounting hardware.
Get a Fire TV Remote for $6.99
Woot is currently selling Refurbished Genuine Fire TV Remotes for $6.99 for Black Friday. These have been “certified by Amazon to look and work like new.” I specifically mention that these are genuine because there are numerous knock-offs (note that they are missing the Amazon logo) of these remotes that may not be as good as the original, which Amazon stopped selling long ago. While these remotes originally shipped with the old Fire TV Stick, they are compatible with every Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, and Fire TV Cube model. Note that they don’t have any voice capabilities and they cannot control your TV’s power or volume. If you’re looking for an inexpensive replacement remote for the Fire TV, a backup remote to keep around just in case, or even a second remote for 2-player games, this is a rare chance to buy the real thing at a great price. These are shipped by Amazon (since Amazon owns Woot) and shipping is free for Prime members.
Get Philo for 1 month for $15
Philo is currently offering $5 Off your 1st month for Black Friday. That might not seem like much, but it’s 25% off since Philo is among the least expensive streaming services at only $20 per month. This deal gives you access to over 60 channels for 1 month for $15, with no contract and no obligation to continue. When you click this link you should see a message briefly appear at the top of the page letting you know that the promotion has been applied. You shouldn’t need to do it, but if you’re asked for a promo code at any point, just enter BLACKFRIDAY to get the discount.
Amazon has released the Dash Smart Shelf in their continued effort to remind you to buy stuff that is running low. The “shelf” is actually a thin scale that senses when the items you’ve placed on it have reduced in weight enough to need reordering. You configure if you want it to just notify you when what is on it is running low or if you want it to also automatically reorder the item from Amazon. Read more ›
Get Hulu for just $1.99/month
Hulu is offering a pretty great deal for Black Friday. Sign up for their standard streaming plan and pay just $1.99 per month for 12 months. That’s a huge 76% off of the regular price of $5.99 per month. There is no contract with this deal so you can try it for a month and pay just $1.99, keep it through the holidays and pay about the price of a Starbucks coffee, or keep it for the full 12 months and pay just $23.88. Both new and returning customers are eligible, as long as you haven’t had a subscription in the last 3 months. This offer ends on 11/30.
Get Noggin for $0.99/month
If you have little ones in the house and want an ocean of great educational kids content to help you survive the holidays, this deal is for you. Kids streaming service Noggin is currently just $0.99/month for 2 months. That’s 87% off of the regular price of $7.99/month. This deal is through Prime Video Channels, so you can either access the content directly through Prime Video or use the subscription to activate the dedicated Noggin Fire TV app. Noggin has tons of popular kids shows including Dora the Explorer, Blue’s Clues, Blaze, Paw Patrol, and more. Remember that you can quickly cancel a Prime Video Channel subscription online in just a few clicks on this page. When you cancel you will be able to continue accessing the content until the next renewal date, so you can subscribe and cancel immediately to get 1 full month for $0.99 without worrying about forgetting to cancel.
Get a Free Tivo Stream 4K w/ Sling TV Subscription
Get 1-Month Free w/ Sling TV Subscription
Sling TV is offering a few Black Friday deals of their own for new subscribers. If you pre-pay for 2 months of service, they’ll give you a Tivo Stream 4K for Free. Since Sling TV costs $30/month, it’s like getting 2 months for $10 if you were already thinking of getting a $50 Tivo Stream 4K. If you’re not interested in the Android TV media player, you can instead get 1 month Free of Sling TV after paying for the first month. For that offer, just scroll down the page and look for the deal button listed under the “BOGO” offer. You’re free to cancel your subscription after the included 2 months of service with either of these offers. If neither of those offers sounds appealing, you can also just get 1 month for $20, which is a savings of $10. That offer is at the very bottom of this page.
They’re one of the last deals to go live, but Amazon has now put all Fire tablets on sale for Black Friday. The Fire 7 is on sale for $39.99, which, at just $10 off, is not an impressive discount considering it was $34.99 earlier this year and $29.99 last Black Friday. The Fire HD 8 is $54.99, which is a much better deal because it matches the lowest price that it has ever been. The Fire HD 8 Plus is $74.99, which also matches its lowest price. Both Fire HD 8 versions are discounted by $35 off and the Plus version comes with more RAM, wireless charging, and a faster charger. The Fire HD 10 is on sale for $79.99, which at 50% off is the best deal of the bunch by far. Also on sale are all of the Kids Edition versions of these tablets, which come with a 2-year worry-free replacement garantee, a 1-year subscription to Amazon Kids+, and more.
Peacock TV is still not available on Amazon Fire TV devices, but a new
v1.1.3 updated version (SEE BELOW FOR UPDATE) has just been released. If you’re new to sideloading, you might not be aware that updating an already sideloaded app is as straight forward as installing the new version right over the existing one. If you followed my guide to sideload Peacock TV or are using my Downloader app, simply use the URL bit.ly/firepck (SEE BELOW FOR UPDATE) in the Downloader app to sideload the latest version of Peacock TV. You don’t need to uninstall the existing version or do anything special if the older version is already installed on the device. Just sideload the new version as you would any new app. After launching the app and signing in, if you get only audio when playing content or the video is frozen, force quitting the app or restarting your Fire TV should solve the issue. To force quit the app, go to Settings > Applications > Manage Installed Applications and select the app. To restart your device, go to Settings > My Fire TV > Restart. If you need more detailed instructions for sideloading, see this guide and use the URL mentioned above. Note that it seems like the 1st-gen Fire TV and 1st-gen Fire TV Stick are not compatible with the Peacock app. This could change in the future, so there is no harm in trying to install the latest version.
