Toshiba just released a new series of 4K smart TVs — named the Toshiba Fire TV Edition — and you order them today from Best Buy. The TVs are available in three sizes (43-, 50- and 55-inches) and the notable thing is that they’re the company’s first line of televisions with Fire TV built-in. This means that if you have an Amazon Echo, you can ask Alexa to summon a show, on Netflix or Hulu, or live TV. Of course, if you don’t have an Alexa smart speaker, you can still do essentially the same thing by pressing the Alexa button on the TV’s remote. If you have an Alexa-supported security camera, you can summon the camera’s live feed on your TV, too.
Each model in the Toshiba Fire TV Edition series has pretty much the same specs. They have a three HDMI inputs (one with ARC support), an optical port, USB-A, ethernet, and a headphone jack. And all of the TVs cost under $500: 43-inch model ($330), 50-inch model ($400), 55-inch model ($480).
