If you love keeping all your smart home devices compatible, you can now add your DVR to the list. Amazon’s Fire TV Recast is making it easier than ever to record your favorite shows from live TV, and it’s compatible with Alexa.
How It Works
Fire TV Recast is an Alexa-enabled device that allows you to record your favorite live TV shows through an HD antenna using Fire TV, Echo Show, or any compatible mobile device. That means you won’t need to miss the first half of your show because you can start recording even while you’re stuck in traffic. The Recast comes with either two or four tuners so you can record two to four shows at once. It also stores up to 75 hours of your favorite shows.
Searching for your favorite shows just got a whole lot easier. This Alexa-enabled DVR allows you to search shows, open and browse the channel guide, and manage and schedule recordings using your voice.
Why Customers Love It
Cord cutters love the Fire TV Recast and were thrilled to finally update their old DVR. They loved that the Recast didn’t need any extra monthly fees to record, and that the playback quality was higher than traditional DVRs. They also liked that features like Closed Captioning were seamlessly integrated, and that it was compatible with their existing Fire Stick. Several reviewers also mentioned the small, sleek design.
