Amazon’s big fall hardware event saw the introduction of the impressive Fire TV Stick 4K and a slew of other products, but as a home theater nerd, I was most interested in the Fire TV Recast.

The Recast is designed to integrate seamlessly with Amazon’s Fire TV streaming devices; your live TV channels show up in their own row on the Fire TV home screen, and you can use Alexa to change channels or schedule a DVR recording with your voice.

But rather, the big selling point is that the Recast will give you watch-anywhere access to ABC, CBS, Fox, and NBC, plus PBS and a couple dozen filler channels.

Lets you record and watch OTA channels anywhere

Seamless integration with Fire TV and Alexa voice commands
