Need a new mid-size TV to watch your favorite shows? Look no further: Amazon’s 43-inch Fire TV 4 series is available for $210. That’s a whopping $180 off and an unbeatable deal on a set that will likely last you a decade or more. The 4 Series is notable for a number of reasons, not the least of which is Amazon’s built-in Fire TV interface. Not only does this offer access to all the major streaming services, but also a nifty selection of games and apps.
All 4 Series models support Alexa control, meaning you can say things like “Alexa, turn on the TV” or “Alexa, watch What we do in the shadows on Hulu” and get instant results. I honestly didn’t think this was a big deal until I started reviewing one of these TVs, but trust me: hands-free commands are pretty handy.
Features like these, along with the aforementioned app support, help give the Fire TV the edge over Roku. And I say that as someone who tends to prefer the latter’s interface. Right now, Fire is winning the smart TV war.
Ease of use versus performance
The Fire TV 4 Series is easy to use and offers easy access to all your favorite services, especially with the four buttons on the remote that let you jump straight to Prime Video, Netflix, Disney+ or Netflix. It also supports Dolby Vision.
This model is good value and larger sizes are on offer – but there are some features not available on smaller TVs. However, it has three different HDMI ports as well as a dedicated HDMI port for surround sound systems, giving you a more immersive experience.
Of course, if you have Amazon Prime, you get free shipping. Not a member yet? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders $25 or more.)
