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.
If your home is still without a Fire TV device or the Echo Show 5, today's the day to pick one up as they're also discounted right now. The Echo Show 5 is the only mentioned Amazon device on sale that you wouldn't need a Prime membership to save on, so if you're not a member already, be sure to start a free 30-day trial so that your account is eligible for the rest of today's offers.
Watch and Rewatch
Ever wish you could watch live TV using your Fire TV Stick or Echo Show 5? With the Fire TV Recast, you can watch and record live TV on those devices or a compatible mobile device, though you need Amazon Prime to score today's discount.

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.
The Fire TV Recast has 4 out of 5 stars and our recommendation as a great DVR. Our review states, "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."
