Amazon Fire TV Edition TVs are now a thing

Amazon Fire TV Edition TVs are now a thing

Instead, Amazon will be tapping a retailer whose life it has made incredibly hard over the years, Best Buy, to begin selling smart televisions with its Fire TV capabilities baked in. But Best Buy and Amazon did not say how much the TVs will cost or what size screens Toshiba and Insignia will be selling.

The TVs come with a remote that has Amazon's Alexa voice-assistant built in, so you can press a button and say out loud the movies you want to watch, or what channel you want to switch to.

Of course, if you want to take things a step further and go entirely hands-free, you can also connect these TVs to any Echo device and use voice commands that way. The TVs will be available through Best Buy's website and brick-and-mortar stores, as well as through Amazon.com, where Best Buy will become a third-party merchant. "These Fire Edition smart TVs by Insignia and Toshiba deliver lovely visuals and all the movies and TV shows you love, with an experience that gets better every day with Alexa". As part of Best Buy's deal with Amazon, Best Buy will no longer make Insignia televisions with Roku's operating system built-in.

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

Its sequel followed in 2001, although it was only released on Dreamcast in Europe and Japan; the game was later ported to the original Xbox in 2002.

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

Best Buy has also teamed up with other notable players in the smart TV space, like Samsung and LG. Best Buy has been forced to invest heavily in its online presence to compete with Amazon, which has generally done a fine job of stealing sales from the big-box retailer. Best Buy has played this role in a number of areas, including, most recently, 4K televisions, premium computing and the smart home.

Amazon and Best Buy have deepened their retail partnership. "In fact, Amazon was more expensive on 13% to 14% of those similar items".
