  • Easy setup, Plenty of DVR space, It just works
  • Only works with Fire TV products
  • Amazon's Fire TV Recast just works. It's a cliche catchphrase that's typically muttered about Apple products but is applicable here. It's easy to set up and it works seamlessly with Amazon products. But remaining dependent on Amazon products is something...

  • Abstract:  That's changed a good bit in 2018. Many streaming services now include the major local broadcast channels. And products like Tablo (and to a different extent, HDHomerun) have made watching over-the-air TV throughout your home a relatively simple endeavor...

  • Lets you record up to four programs at onc, Works with Fire T, Can stream programs to smartphone
  • Requires purchase of Fire TV device
  • The Recast is a great accessory for those who want to add DVR-like capabilities to their over-the-air broadcasts. While you're locked into using a Fire TV device, the two integrate seamlessly. Even better, it has a Sling-like ability to stream your local...

  • The Amazon Fire TV Recast antenna DVR doesn't charge any monthly fees. Its sophisticated program guide fits live TV channels seamlessly into the Fire TV interface. Setup is easy and out of home streaming to your phone works well. Picture quality was perfe
  • It's more expensive initially than many antenna TV options. You need a Fire TV device attached to your TV, and can only watch on two devices at once. Alexa search isn't as dependable as manually using the channel guide, and the required Fire TV menu syste

  • Easy and flexible setup, Subscription-free DVR, Up to four tuners and plenty of storage, Alexa support makes control easy

  • The Amazon Fire TV can access thousands of the most popular streaming apps. Its interface is very quick to respond, and Amazon content launches almost immediately. Parental controls and support are top-notch. Voice search from the remote works very well,
  • Popular apps like Netflix, Hulu, YouTube and others take a back seat to Amazon's own TV shows and movies. Search results prioritize Amazon, and often hide results from other providers even if you've installed them. There's no way to customize the interfac
  • The Fire TV is a formidable streamer with 4K capability and oodles of features, but it tries too hard to serve up Amazon's own TV shows and movies...
