Fire TV Soundbar on sale for $89.99 new or $69.99 like-new used for Prime Day — New Lowest Price Ever

Amazon continues to trickle out Early Prime Day Deals and today it’s the Fire TV Soundbar going on sale for $89.99. While, at 25% off the regular price of $119.99, this is the new lowest price it has ever been on Amazon, Woot did sell it new for $79.99 for a short period a couple of months ago. Speaking of Woot, if you don’t mind someone else opening the box before you, Woot currently has the soundbar in Like-New Open Box condition for $69.99, which is also a new all-time low price. While this is a ripoff at $120 and nothing more than a generic soundbar with the Fire TV logo slapped on it, since it has no Fire TV-specific capabilities whatsoever, at $89.99 it starts to be worth considering if you’re looking for a compact soundbar to use instead of your TV’s built-in speakers. Just keep your expectations in check.

Amazon’s Fire TV Soundbar is now available in the UK and Germany for the first time

Amazon launched its first Fire TV Soundbar in the US, Canada, and Mexico late last year and now it’s making it available overseas. The Fire TV Soundbar just launched in the UK for £99.99 and in Germany/Austria for €109.99. Unlike previous soundbars from TCL and Anker that had a Fire TV streaming device built in, the Amazon-made Fire TV Soundbar has absolutely no Fire TV integration whatsoever. You can read my review of it here, but, in short, it’s just an overpriced generic soundbar with no unique features that would merit carrying the Fire TV branding.

Netflix is kicking subscribers off their grandfathered-in cheap ad-free plans

Netflix has started forcing people off their old grandfathered-in cheap ad-free plans. The streaming giant said it would start doing it later this year and that time has come. Existing subscribers on the discontinued plan will see a message in the Netflix app informing them they must choose a new plan. Worse yet, even if your final month on the old plan hasn’t ended, there’s no way to dismiss the message and continue watching. You must select a new plan once the message appears. The current plan options in the US are $6.99/month with ads, $15.49/month for 1080p without ads, or $22.99/month for 4K without ads.
