If you're ready to cut the cord on cable, but still want to be able to DVR your favorite shows from over-the-air broadcast networks like ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox, Amazon's Fire TV Recast is a clever solution with no monthly fees.
Rather than plugging into your TV, the Recast sits anywhere in your house (ideally on the top floor or in an attic), and attaches to any HDTV antenna (sold separately). The Recast then acts as a kind of network-connected DVR, and streams your live and recorded over-the-air content to any phone, tablet, or Fire TV streaming device. If you've tried using an antenna, but your TV isn't ideally located for good reception, or if you'd rather just hide the antenna somewhere out of sight, this is an awesome way to enjoy your local channels anywhere, and record your favorite shows to watch later.
The device costs $130 today for Prime Members as part of Amazon's early Prime Day deals. That's a match for the deal we saw during the holiday season, and as low as we expect it to get any time soon.
