It's way past time to become a Prime member, and today's big sale on Amazon devices is just another reason why. Surprise discounts just hit Amazon's latest devices from the Fire TV Stick to the Fire HD 8 Tablet, though the only way to score these low prices is with a Prime membership. The Fire TV Recast 500GB over-the-air DVR is on sale today too, and at $60 off its regular cost, today's sale brings this device down to one of its lowest prices ever. You can also upgrade to the 1TB version for $209.99.

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. This machine is great for live sports and other shows you can't usually get on an app like Netflix — local news, talk shows, etc. Just pair it with an HDTV antenna like this one.
