Amazon Fire TV Edition TVs are now a thing

Amazon Fire TV Edition TVs are now a thing

The devices will be sold exclusively through Best Buy and Amazon.com and via the retailer's chain of brick-and-mortar stores. Starting this summer, Best Buy will launch more than 10 4K and HD Fire TV Edition models made by Toshiba and Insignia. "These Fire Edition smart TVs by Insignia and Toshiba deliver handsome visuals and all the movies and TV shows you love, with an experience that gets better every day with Alexa". At the same time, if you're convinced, running to Amazon for a cheaper price will take you straight back to Best Buy.

Amazon Fire TV's strong suit is, of course, the addition of Alexa that enables smart home control functionality and all of the intelligence Amazon has built into its smart assistant.

Amazon has cut a deal to sell voice-controlled TVs at Best Buy, the latest attempt by the online retailer to get its burgeoning suite of tech products out where people can see and touch them.

And in the previous year, Best Buy has rolled out Amazon Alexa displays, as well as those for Google Home, to 700 stores to better explain how to link those devices to other household gadgets. It also will become a third-party seller on Amazon.com as part of the deal.

Fire TV Edition continues to improve even after your purchase, with more new Alexa skills, software features, and applications added regularly.

The TVs include Fire TV OS integration that can allow streaming through other services like Netflix or Hulu alongside the proprietary Prime Video by Amazon. If someone thinks about buying a new pair of shoes, Amazon's goal is to sell them those shoes before they change their mind - basically. Best Buy has played this role in a number of areas, including, most recently, 4K televisions, premium computing and the smart home. Users will be able to use Alexa and Echo with the TVs. But if what I've experienced with Fire TV devices over the past several years remains true, I recommend you steer clear of the whole lineup.

The retailers announced today (April 18) that they're joining forces to sell televisions across the US and Canada.
