The smart televisions, manufactured by Insignia and Toshiba, are loaded with Amazon'sAlexa voice assistant, and an Alexa-powered "voice remote" to launch apps, search for TV shows, play music, switch inputs and control smart home devices, among other tasks.
Amazon is looking to sell its Fire TV Edition smart televisions in a big box store, but thankfully it's not Whole Foods.
Fire TV Edition smart TVs feature integrated support for the Fire TV platform, offering access to a variety of streaming services like Netflix, Prime Video, HBO, PlayStation Vue, Hulu, and more. It can also be paired with any Echo device allowing you to easily use your voice to control your TV experience hands-free with Alexa. The devices will be sold exclusively through Best Buy and Amazon.com and via the retailer's chain of brick-and-mortar stores.
Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos boasted that the new TVs will "deliver lovely 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".

The Amazon Fire TV has been around for a few years now and has seen some success.
This partnership also shows that Amazon realizes it needs to cooperate with retailers as it becomes more of a hardware company, Baker said.
While consumer goods and apparel companies can better control their brands by selling through Amazon themselves as Best Buy has now chose to do (rather than leaving things up to third parties on the Amazon marketplace), research shows they risk Amazon evaluating their best sellers to create its own private label items. Even as the prices have come down on the large screens, Best Buy has continued to devote a sizable section of their store space to TV gallery-viewing.

What do you think of these Amazon TVs? The products will be available in the USA and Canada starting this summer.
