With Black Friday sales well underway, there's virtually no reason to go stand in line on Thanksgiving, especially if it is Amazon devices you're after. The company just added yet another product to its early Black Friday deals in the discounted Fire TV Recast (opens in new tab). It's $100 off in both the 500GB (opens in new tab) and 1TB (opens in new tab) capacities, dropping prices down to all-time lows. The only other time we have seen prices fall this far was during the Prime-exclusive Amazon Prime Day sale in the summer. This time, anyone can get in on the savings. The deals are also available at Best Buy (opens in new tab).

Ever wish you could watch live TV using your Fire TV Stick or Echo Show 5? With the Fire TV Recast, you can watch and record live TV on those devices or a compatible mobile device. This is a match for its Prime Day low.
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 — local news, talk shows, etc. Just pair it with an HDTV antenna like this one (opens in new tab).
The Recast has two tuners (four for the 1TB) so you can record two shows at once, and the 500GB space should let you record as much as 75 hours of programming (150 with the 1TB). Use Alexa through a device like the Echo Dot (opens in new tab) to search for shows, manage your recordings, and more.
The Fire TV Recast has 4 out of 5 stars and our recommendation as a great DVR. Our review states, "It's a great little piece of tech because it's easy to set up, and easy to use, and it integrates into the Amazon Fire TV beautifully. It is very well done."
