will be here next week, running Tuesday October 13th and Wednesday October 14th, starting just after midnight PT. Amazon has already launched a few Also offers for streaming gadgets and televisions, which we highlight here. We will keep this story updated with the latest Prime Day offers in this category as they become available.
Prime Day Deal Tips for TVs and Streaming Devices
- Amazon just announced two new Fire TV streamers: The new
- Roku also introduced two new streamers: Roku meets Amazon’s in-house Fire TV line with its own strong streamer house from $ 30. Unlike the Fire TV platform, Roku now broadcasts NBC’s Peacock service, but HBO Max is still out of sight in either case. At the top end, it’s a new $ 100 and $ 130 (a mini soundbar) both deliver 4K HDR streaming. The sweet spot remains that , including a remote control that also controls the volume and power of your TV: With a list price of $ 49, the Streaming Stick Plus is often discounted to $ 39 and dropped to $ 30 last Black Friday. Endure at least $ 39 or less on Prime Day.
- Also, look out for discounts on TVs: Almost all new TVs have their own streaming apps on board, and we expect numerous Prime Day discounts on these models as well. Last Prime Day we saw 32-inch smart TVs for $ 100 and 50-inch smart TVs for $ 280. ( for a benchmark of current prices.)
The best Prime Day TV offers so far
As mentioned above, Amazon has already seen some nice price drops on TVs with built-in Fire TV streaming, two of which have the lowest prices yet.
Update, Friday October 9th: Retail prices for the televisions listed below are now in effect, although some offers from earlier this week such as: B. for a Fire TV Recast DVR, have expired and have been removed. It is unclear whether they will return.
We didn’t love the 2019 version of this TV as the picture quality and app offerings were lower than what you would get from an equivalent Roku TV. But conflicts over your dollar keep coming up as this is a newer model and the price cut marks a new low that is $ 10 below the 32-inch Roku model.
The smart home makes for weird bedfellows, but I suppose Amazon, which sells Best Buy’s own brand Insignia, is no stranger to Best Buy, which sells Amazon’s Echo speakers. Both stores are now selling this 43-inch TV for $ 100, a new low that takes it below the magical $ 200 mark. Again, we like the 43-inch TCL Roku TV better overall, even though it’s not 4K, but the TCL lacks built-in voice control and is currently $ 20 more.

The savings aren’t massive (yet), but right now this is the best deal on a 50-inch TV, largely because it uses Roku’s operating system, which we overall like better than Fire TV. As a 4K Roku, later this year it will get the AirPlay upgrade, which will allow it to play well with Apple phones and tablets, and it also includes the Peacock Fire TV app, which is missing.
On the other hand, we wouldn’t be surprised if the price fell between now and Prime Day. It’s probably best to wait a few days if you can. Read our TCL 50S425 Roku TV review.

Do you want a much bigger, better TV? The XBR-X900H has dropped to its lowest price ever, just $ 250 more than the competing TCL 6 Series. This Sony packs the Android TV operating system, plus great picture quality and next-generation connectivity that outperforms the Roku and other budget devices – in time for the new Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. Sure, a big price increase over the other three here, but also the savings are great. Read our Sony XBR-65X900H review.
