The last couple of years has seen a number of consumers moving away from traditional cable and TV content providers in an attempt to ‘cut the cord’. As a result the TV landscape is changing quite rapidly with content providers now offering access to many of their TV services and content through standalone apps. One of the best ways you can make use of these new services is through dedicated TV boxes like the Fire TV from Amazon and one of the additional benefits of the Fire TV range in particular, is that as well as the content available in app form, these units also offer access to the Amazon Prime Instant Video service. Meaning they are all round great devices for consuming TV and gaming content. Great devices which also happen to be currently on sale.
Those interested in just picking up the standard Amazon Fire TV device, can currently pick it up for only $84.99. This is basically a $15 discount of its normal price as the Fire TV does cost $99.99 normally. Those interested in taking advantage of the Fire TV’s gaming abilities might want to consider the Fire TV Gaming Edition. This unit is typically priced at $139.99, although it is currently on sale for $124.99. The main differences with the gaming edition is that this one comes with a Fire TV Game controller (instead of the Fire TV remote), a 32GB microSD card slot for expanded local storage and two games, Shovel Knight and Disney DuckTales: Remastered. Those less interested in gaming and more looking to take advantage of the cord cutter functionality might want to consider picking up the Amazon Fire TV + HD Antenna Bundle. As well as the main Fire TV unit, this one also includes an AmazonBasics Ultra Thin Indoor HDTV Antenna (which picks up local stations within a 35-mile radius), as well as an AmazonBasics 6 ft HDMI cable. This one normally retails around $130, however it is currently on sale for only $94.99. Which probably makes it the best of today's deals when you consider it is only $10 more than the current sale price of the standard Fire TV unit.
