Amazon Sweetens It’s New Fire 4K UHD TV Up With A HDTV Antenna Deal
Stephan Jukic – November 7, 2017
Amazon’s new Fire 4K UHD TV has been out on sale for a little over a week now and as we showed in our recent review of this new device, it offers some pretty excellent essential 4K television streaming service value for a very affordable price of just $70, which is about the normal for the latest batch of competitor devices with similar specs (Google Chromecast Ultra, Roku Streaming Stick + etc). However, one thing that the Fire TV 4K dongle offers as a nice bonus for a limited time on Amazon right now is a new HDTV antenna that offers access to free network HDTV without a penny of additional access cost. Amazon is selling this little Fire TV 4K + HD Antenna bundle for just $74.99 for both combined. In other words a handy savings of roughly $15 or $16 dollars. The antenna extra is at the very least a nice excuse for grabbing your copy of the Fire TV 4K dongle because all things considered it’s definitely a solid streaming device for those of you who might not be happy with your existing smart TV platform.
As we covered in detail in our own review, Amazon has made the newest Fire TV device into one little powerhouse of processing power, user-friendliness and massive access to both Amazon’s own 4K/HD content and content of all kinds from thousands of competitor apps, including Google Play, Netflix and many others. Furthermore, unlike the older 2015 Fire TV 4K set-top box that is its predecessor, the new and much, much smaller device offers full 4K HDR playback at 60FPS, making it completely ready for all the latest in streamed ultra HD video sources. We thus strongly recommended the Fire TV dongle and with this bundle our recommendation only increases slightly since we’re talking about a fundamentally great product here regardless of free accessories.
As per the essential product specs from Amazon’s own page for the Fire TV 4K + HD antenna bundle, the new little dongle offers up the following essentials:
- “All-new, streamlined Fire TV with 4K Ultra HD, now at a better price and including HDR support. Includes HDMI output, micro USB for power or purchase optional Amazon Ethernet Adapter to take advantage of the speed and reliability of wired internet.
- No cable or satellite? No problem. This bundle includes an all-new Fire TV and an AmazonBasics Ultra Thin Indoor HD TV Antenna (35 Mile). Save compared to when purchased separately.
- Experience true-to-life picture quality and sound with access to vivid 4K Ultra HD up to 60 fps, HDR, and Dolby Atmos audio.
- Enjoy tens of thousands of channels, apps, and Alexa skills with access to over 500,000 movies and TV episodes from Netflix, Prime Video, YouTube, Hulu, HBO, SHOWTIME, STARZ, and more. Subscription fees may apply.
- Just connect the AmazonBasics HD Antenna directly to your TV and switch to the antenna input to receive local HD broadcasts from major networks such as NBC and PBS. Get live sports, local news, late night shows, and more. Specific channel reception depends on broadcasts available in your local area.”
