Amazon-built Fire TV Omni and 4-Series 4K TVs now available, starting at $370

In September, Amazon revealed it was getting into the TV game by announcing two Amazon-branded TVs that are based on the company’s Fire TV smart TV software. Now those TVs — the Fire TV Omni Series and Fire TV 4-Series — are available to buy, with prices starting at $370. As part of the release of these new models, Amazon has also said that both will receive Apple AirPlay 2 and Apple HomeKit support via an upcoming firmware update.

Amazon describes the Fire TV Omni as a “cinematic home theater experience,” and while that may be a stretch for the smaller screen sizes of this TV, there’s no doubt that the largest versions — 65- and 75-inch sizes — deserve that label, as they support Dolby Vision HDR in addition to the HDR10 and HLG formats supported by the smaller screen sizes.

The Omni Series is also notable for its support of hands-free Alexa via a set of built-in far-field microphones that can be disabled using an electronic switch located at the bottom of the TV’s bezel.

Omni Series TVs have three HDMI 2.0 ports and a single HDMI 2.1 port with eARC support for external soundbars and A/V receivers. The TVs support Dolby Digital Plus and provide passthrough support for other Dolby Audio signals like Dolby Atmos. In addition to the usual Fire TV features like a Live TV tab and personalized content recommendations, the Omni also lets you do picture-in-picture mode for any Alexa-compatible smart home cameras you may have around the house.

You can buy the Fire TV Omni Series in the following sizes:

  • $410 43-inch
  • $510 50-inch
  • $560 55-inch
  • $830 65-inch
  • $1,100 75-inch

Fire TV 4-Series

Amazon Fire TV 4-Series 4K HDR TV.

The Fire TV 4-Series offers 4K resolution and support for both HDR10 and HLG formats of HDR video, but if you want to use your voice to issue Alexa commands, you’ll need to use the included voice remote as these TVs don’t have the Omni’s built-in mics.

Fire TV 4-Series models are all Dolby Digital Plus compatible (with passthrough for Dolby Audio) and are equipped with three HDMI 2.0 ports and a single HDMI 2.1 port which is also used for HDMI eARC.

You can buy the Fire TV 4-Series in the following sizes:

  • $370 43-inch
  • $470 50-inch
  • $520 55-inch

Amazon Fire TV Cube

If you've been looking for a fast, cheap, and user-friendly way to experience the growing world of streaming media, an Amazon Fire TV product is an excellent option for all your Netflix-adjacent needs. With most of Amazon's hardware requiring nothing more than a Wi-Fi connection and a TV to plug into, you'll be able to get connected to all that content in no time at all.

Some Fire TV devices even give you the ability to interact with Alexa, making voice control over your TV as easy as saying, "Alexa, open Netflix." But there are several kinds of Fire TV devices, each with a different price, design, and features. Which Amazon Fire TV product is right for you? We'll take an in-depth look at the five current Amazon Fire TV models -- the Fire TV Stick Lite, Fire TV Stick, Fire TV Stick 4K, Fire TV Stick 4K Max, and the Fire TV Cube -- so you can get a feel for what each one offers.

The least interesting things about the new Apple TV 4K
The new Apple TV 4K, 3rd-generation, with the Siri remote.

It's a big deal whenever Apple announces new products. OK, maybe not in the global scheme of things, but in our little world here, every sentence of every word of every press release is going to be scrutinized. Things that aren't a big deal are going to be turned into headlines. Blog. Blog. Blog.

And that's true again in the case of the latest Apple TV 4K, which will be available for everyone starting November 4. It is, for all intents and purposes, the same as the old one. It's better, sure. It's a little less expensive, which is great. It's almost certainly still the best streaming device you can buy. But the features that are getting the headlines? That's folks reaching for something to celebrate.
