Amazon is partnering with Best Buy for exclusive rights to their upcoming line of 4K Fire TV Edition Smart TVs. The models will either be Insignia or Toshiba. They are slated to be released in the United States this summer and in Canada by the winter.
Amazon Founder and CEO, Jeff Bezos remarked,
“Amazon and Best Buy have a long history of working together, and today we take our partnership to a new level. These Fire Edition smart TVs by Insignia and Toshiba deliver beautiful visuals and all the movies and TV shows you love, with an experience that gets better every day with Alexa. We could not have a better partner in this endeavor.”
There is confirmation of 4K, but we cannot confirm if these smart TVs will carry HDR support. However, Best Buy Chairman and CEO, Hubert Joly did chime in,
“Our goal is to enrich the lives of our customers by offering them the very best products and services, whether they come to us online, visit our stores, or invite us into their homes. Our partnership with Amazon is exciting because we believe Fire TV Edition delivers an incredible user experience and further strengthens the growing connection between home theater, home automation and voice control.”
