The Amazon Fire TV Recast DVR (opens in new tab) has dropped in price today to $144.99 on Amazon. You can also find this deal at Best Buy. If you want to wait up to two weeks for a special order, you can get it for just $130 from B&H (opens in new tab). Both prices offer you huge savings. The Recast has only ever dropped below $220 once before during Black Friday when it matched B&H's current low of $130. Its regular price is $230.

You can upgrade to the 1TB version, too. It's on sale for its Black Friday price of $179.99 at Best Buy. It's also discounted at Amazon (opens in new tab) but not as much, going for $195 there.

Best price ever outside of Black Friday. The DVR lets you record over-the-air TV then watch it anywhere and at any time. Records up to two shows at once and up to 75 hours of HD programming. Use voice search with an Alexa device.

The Fire TV Recast has 4 out of 5 stars and Android Central's recommendation as a great DVR. The review said, "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."

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. You won't have to pay any monthly fees or anything for this service, either, just the upfront cost of the box covers you forever.

This machine is great for live sports and other shows you can't usually get on an app like Netflix — local news, live sports, talk shows, etc. Just pair it with an HDTV antenna like the Mohu Leaf Metro (opens in new tab) for less than $18. 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 to search for shows, manage your recordings, and more.

J.D. Levite has been in the deals game since 2012. He has posted daily deals at Gizmodo, The Wirecutter, The Sweethome, and now for Thrifter. He was there for the first Prime Day and has braved the full force of Black Friday. If you cut him, he bleeds savings. But don't try it for real. That's a metaphor.
