Amazon's Fire TV Recast drops to lowest price ever in pre-Prime Day sale

We're into July which means Amazon Prime Day is looming large. But you don't have to wait until its official July 15 kick off date to start saving with early deals already cropping up. One new deal to take advantage of just went live today: $100 off Amazon Fire TV Recast (opens in new tab). The deal, which is exclusive to Amazon Prime (opens in new tab) members, takes the over-the-air DVR device down to its lowest ever price in both storage configurations.

The 500GB Fire TV Recast (opens in new tab) is usually $229.99 but falls to just $129.99 with the Prime-exclusive discount. During Black Friday it hit $190 for the first time and we haven't seen a discount that good since then. The Recast's integration with the Fire TV and Echo Show lets you watch and record over-the-air TV easily. Plus you'll be able to watch your media on compatible mobile devices, too. This machine is great for live sports and other shows you can't usually get on an app like Netflix — such as local news, talk shows, and the like. Just pair it with an HDTV antenna like this one (opens in new tab). The Recast has two tuners so you can record two shows at once, and the 500GB space should let you record as much as 75 hours of programming. Use Alexa through a device like the Echo Dot (opens in new tab) to search for shows, manage your recordings, and more.

You can also upgrade to the 1TB version (opens in new tab) for $179.99. Regularly $279.99, the larger size Recast fell to $220 during Black Friday before returning to its full price. We've only seen it discounted to $230 infrequently after that. It has four tuners and its increased capacity allows for up to 150 hours of programming to be recorded.

Of course, this sale is only available to Amazon Prime (opens in new tab) subscribers. However, if you're new to Prime, you can take advantage of its 30-day free trial (opens in new tab) to get all of its benefits, including this Fire TV Recast sale as well as all of the upcoming Prime Day deals.
