This gadget is a big part of Amazon’s streaming future.
The Fire TV Recast contains a hard drive and the necessary tuners for streaming and/or recording shows, sports, and movies. But you’ll need to provide your own antenna. The 500GB model ($230) has two tuners, while the 1TB version ($280) has four. Amazon is offering a bundle that includes the Fire TV Stick 4K, a 35-mile antenna, and the 500GB Recast for $250. That seems like the obvious way to go to me, but maybe you’re someone who just wants to record all the things and decide what to watch later on.
