A two-year-old addition to the Fire TV line-up of home entertainment devices, this DVR box can stream shows from an HD antenna to watch on your Echo Show, Amazon Fire TV, or on a mobile device. It can even send recorded live TV to your Echo Show – up to four shows at a time, for you to stream on multiple devices. And, thanks to built-in Alexa, you can do things like delete or schedule recordings with your vooice.
Essentially, it gives your TV setup more flexibility.
Fire TV Recast features two tuners and a 500GB DVR, though there’s also a four-tuner 1TB option. Both models are discounted by $100.

The Fire TV Recast normally costs $229.99 and is now down to $129 (two tuners) and $179 (four tuners). It first released in 2018.
