Well here’s an interesting promo should you lack for both a TV streamer and tablet. Amazon has paired their new Fire TV with the 7″ Kindle Fire HDX tablet for $249, which clocks in $79 cheaper than purchasing each separately. While the Fire TV remains somewhat app poor, the platform has grown on me and we’ve enjoyed dozens of hours of Amazon Instant video at this point (and unloaded our Apple TV). Had the offer been available at launch, I’d have gone this route given my deep ties into Amazon’s ecosystem and synergies between the products (that may or may not ultimately extend to other tablets):

  • Second Screen—Fling movies, TV shows and photos from your Kindle Fire HDX to your HDTV so you can use your tablet to control media playback or browse the web
  • Mirror your Kindle Fire HDX on your HDTV—Share everything you enjoy on your Kindle Fire HDX from apps to music and photos with everyone in your living room
