Amazon Introduces a new companion DVR

Fire TV Recast offers both DVR and streaming on the go

Part of Amazon's deluge of products was the new Amazon Fire TV Recast.

It's a new companion DVR that lets you watch, record, and replay free over-the-air TV programming on the Fire TV, Echo Show, and on compatible Fire tablet, iOS, and Android devices. Amazon said you can pre-order it now and it will launch later this year.

Place Fire TV Recast and a HDTV antenna anywhere in your home, and all of your compatible devices will automatically connect, giving you immediate access to local over-the-air TV programming. There are no monthly fees, but only one Fire TV Recast can be registered per Amazon account. Plus, live TV listings from Prime Video Channels and PlayStation Vue are integrated directly into your "On Now" row and Channel Guide-right alongside your local over-the-air content.

Created to be stashed out of the way where your over-the-air reception is best, Amazon promises to help you find the right place for the device during setup - maybe the attic where you have the best reception - and then via integration with their Fire TV take care of the rest.

The gap between them now stands at 2,315 points. 'Hello everyone, as you know I had to retire in the semi-finals of the US Open and have been in Barcelona with doctors assessing the situation of my knee, ' Nadal tweeted.

The base model of the Fire TV Recast comes equipped with two tuners and a 500GB DVR.

You can also use Alexa with Fire TV Recast.

While it's easy to cut the cord and get national TV networks on your television with apps like Sling, YouTube TV, and more, sending local channels from an antenna to a smart device requires a bit more work.

Access to the free Fire TV app on a Fire tablet (5th Gen or above), or an iOS 10 (or above) or Android 4.4 (or above) mobile device.
