Need a new TV for your study, office, bedroom or any other place where a medium size is appropriate? Look no further: For a limited time, the 43-inch Amazon Fire TV Omni series is on sale for $290. That’s a massive $120 off and an unbeatable deal on a set that will likely last a decade or more. The Omni series is notable for a number of reasons, including Amazon’s built-in Fire TV interface. This gives you access not only to all major streaming services, but also to a substantial selection of games and apps.
What did we say about all these games and apps? Well, here’s some big news: Zoom has joined the list. Video calls on the big screen, anyone? You need a USB camera to use it. Amazon recommends one of Logitech’s webcams, but in theory any Zoom-compatible webcam should work.
All models in the Omni series also support hands-free Alexa, meaning you can say things like “Alexa, turn on the TV” or “Alexa, watch” What do we do in secret on Hulu,” without touching the remote. Honestly, I didn’t think it was a big deal until I started testing one of these TVs, but trust me: hands-free commands are pretty awesome.
Features like this, along with the aforementioned app support, help the Fire TV get ahead of the Roku. And I say this as someone who prefers the interface of the latter. Right now, especially with the addition of Zoom support, the Fire is winning the smart-TV war.
In fact, almost all models in the Omni series are now discounted. Here are a few others if you want to check them out:
