If you don’t count the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which cots over $100k and comes with a Fire TV rear-seat entertainment system, the single most expensive Fire TV anything has just been released in the form of the new Toshiba 75-inch M550 Series Fire TV Smart TV. Coming in at a retail price of $1,399.99, this is not only the most expensive TV running the Fire TV operating system ever released, but it’s also the largest and most full-featured, thanks to its use of a full-array local dimming LED backlight, which isn’t available on any other Fire TV Smart TV series.

As promised when Amazon announced its own hands-free Fire TV Smart TVs, Toshiba has revealed it’s first flagship TV with hands-free Alexa capabilities that can be controlled by voice, without needing to pick up the remote. The Toshiba M550 Series TVs, as they are called, feature an array of 4 microphones, a physical mute switch, and multi-color LED indicator lights along the bottom center to communicate if the TV is muted or listening as a result of hearing its wake word. The 4K TVs, which will be available in 55, 65, and 75-inch sizes, feature LED backlighting with full-array local dimming and support for Dolby Vision, HDR10+, and HDR content. Read more ›
In the shadows of the announcement of the new Fire TV Stick 4K Max and the new Amazon-built Fire TV Smart TVs, Best Buy and Amazon have announced their continued relationship around Fire TV Smart TVs in the US with new models from Pioneer and Toshiba.

Toshiba has just released the first set of new Fire TV Edition televisions for 2021 in the US, which they’re calling the C350 Series. Available immediately is a 43-inch 4K TV for $349.99 and a 50-inch 4K TV for $469.99, but coming in the near future will be 55, 65, and 75-inch screen sizes of the same TVs. Aesthetically, these new 2021 TVs are a significant upgrade from the 2020 and older Fire TV Edition televisions by Toshiba, thanks mostly to much thinner bezels along the top and sides. Functionally, these new TVs are mostly identical to last year’s models, apart from more internal storage and a couple of additional ports. Read more ›
Insignia has put their two largest Fire TV Edition televisions on sale. The massive Insignia 70-inch Fire TV Edition TV is on sale for $549.99. That’s $100 off of its regular price of $650. This is the new largest Fire TV television, which was just released about a month ago. Also on sale is the 65-inch version for $449.99, which is also $100 off of its regular price. Both of these current deals are $50 higher than the lowest prices these TVs have ever been, which was during Prime Day last month. If you’re looking for something smaller, the Toshiba 50-inch Fire TV Edition is on sale for $259.99, which matches the lowest price that it has ever been.
Amazon has put nearly all Fire TV Edition televisions from Toshiba and Insignia on sale already for Prime Day. Deals range from the Insignia 24-inch 720p TV for $79.99 and all the way up to the top of the line Toshiba 55-inch 4K TV with Dolby Vision for $299.99.

Among the numerous early bird Prime Day deals coming out today for Prime members are a couple of Toshiba Fire TV Edition television deals. First is the 2020 Toshiba 55in 4K Fire TV Edition TV on sale for $299.99, which is a new all time low price, beating out the last sale by $50. This normally $449.99 TV is, in my opinion, the best Fire TV Edition TV available because it’s among the few that supports Dolby Vision and offers DTS Virtual X audio processing. This TV comes with the latest Alexa voice remote, 2160p UHD resolution, Dolby Vision & HDR10 support, a built-in OTA tuner, 3 HDMI ports, 1 composite port, 1 USB port for external media, a headphone port, Ethernet, and 802.11ac WiFi. Also on sale is the 2020 Toshiba 32in 720p Fire TV Edition TV for $119.99. This is down from a regular price of $179.99 and is also the new lowest price it has ever been, but it beats the previous best price by just $10. This TV comes with the same new remote, 3 HDMI ports, and other features as the 55in, but is only 720p and doesn’t support Dolby Vision or HDR.

As an early bird Prime Day 2020 deal, the Toshiba 43in 1080p Fire TV Edition television is on sale for $179.99. That is the new lowest price that this 2020 model with the improved remote has ever been, beating the previous lowest price by $20. As I mentioned in my post about the Fire TV Recast sale, don’t expect this TV to be any lower when the main Prime Day sales event rolls around on October 13th and 14th, because Amazon typically doesn’t lower early bird Prime Day deals any further.
