Amazon's $39 Fire TV media player lets you stream your favorite shows in 4K

Right now on Woot you can get the Amazon Fire TV 4K streaming media player along with the 1st-gen Alexa voice remote (opens in new tab) for $38.99. Despite being discontinued since 2017, Woot is providing these in brand new condition with a 1-year Amazon warranty. The only ones available on Amazon (opens in new tab) are refurbished and still $60. You can also get free shipping if you use your Amazon Prime (opens in new tab) membership.

Amazon discontinued this player in favor of doubling down on the Fire TV Stick (opens in new tab), which is $50 (or two for $85), but that shouldn't really matter much because 4K is 4K. That hasn't changed. The Fire TV lets you get rid of the cable company and monthly cable bill by giving you access to over 500,000 movies and TV episodes via Netflix, Prime Video, Hulu, HBO and other streaming services. It also lets you visit websites like Facebook and Reddit. The included remote, which is not the updated version included with the Fire TV Stick above, can be controlled with your voice and the best part is these devices can be plugged into any TV that has an HDMI port. Just connect it to your home Wi-Fi network and you're ready to start streaming.

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.
