It looks like Amazon is going to have a very good holiday shopping season.
The company announced it will be selling its new Fire TV in a very competitively-priced bundle that throws in an Echo Dot for just a few extra bucks.
The $79.99 deal includes its new 4K and HDR-ready Fire TV and an Echo Dot. The new Fire TV costs $69.99 on its own, so buying the bundle essentially gets you the Echo Dot for just ten bucks.
That’s a crazy good deal considering a single Dot sells for $49.99 on its own.
Amazon is also offering an additional bundle that includes the new Fire TV and a digital antenna for $74.99. As we’ve highlighted before, digital antennas, which allow you to watch broadcast TV channels for free, are one of the most handy gadgets a cord cutter can buy.
New Fire TVs also come with the added bonus of two months of Hulu (either its Limited or No Commercial service), a month of Showtime, and a $10 credit to put toward buying or renting content on Amazon Video if you order before November 15th.
Amazon is also offering a cheaper bundle with its Fire TV Stick for those who don’t need the higher powered streaming dongle. A Fire TV Stick and Echo Dot together will cost just $59.99 — essentially bringing the cost of the Echo Dot down to about twenty bucks (a Fire TV Stick currently sells for $39.99 on its own).
All of these bundle prices make the new Apple TV look even more like an overpriced device. Apple launched its most recent Apple TV 4K with a starting price of $179, with a higher-capacity model at $199. With Amazon’s bundle pricing, you can get two Fire TV 4K boxes and two Echo Dots for that price, with cash to spare.
The Fire Stick and Echo Dot bundle is available now, the new Fire TV is available for pre-order and starts shipping October 25th.
