Amazon and Best Buy have a long working history together and this new partnership solidifies the relationship between both brands. "These Fire Edition smart TVs by Insignia and Toshiba deliver attractive visuals and all the movies and TV shows you love, with an experience that gets better every day with Alexa". Stocks will also be available at Best Buy brick and mortar stores.

Amazon first introduced the world to Fire TV Edition smart TVs back in May 2017, when it announced a partnership with budget television maker Element. The TVs can be paired with Amazon's smart speakers, meaning you wouldn't need to pick up a remote at all. The Fire TV lineup is set to launch this summer and will be made available through Best Buy's online store, and Best Buy's physical stores.

The announcement marks another collaboration between the two rival retailers, with Best Buy already selling many Amazon devices in its stores and bringing a limited set of its inventory for sale via voice shopping on Amazon's Alexa.

Best Buy CEO Hubert Joly said the new Fire TVs will provide customers with a "incredible user experience". We do this by solving technology problems and addressing key human needs across a range of areas, including entertainment, productivity, communication, food, security and health.

Lung Association Gives State's Air Quality Mixed Marks
Compared to the 2017 report, some SC cities, like Columbia, experienced more unhealthy days of high ozone in this year's report. The American Lung Association's State of the Air report gave the county a "D" grade for its unhealthy ozone.

Best Buy and Amazon released a statement today announcing plans to work together to launch new Amazon Fire TV Edition smart TVs in Best Buy stores throughout the US and Canada. You'll have all of your normal TV functions but with the addition of Fire TV which can access content such as PlayStation Vue, Hulu, Netflix, Vudu, Plex, and more. Alexa can be used to search for TV shows, play music, switch inputs, control smart home devices and other applications.

It was only a few years ago that Best Buy was on the Death-by-Amazon watch list. One thing these new TVs will feature is Alexa integration, for you smart home buffs out there.

Best Buy will sell them in its stores and online in the US, and later from Canada.

At present, there are seemingly no plans to release Fire TV Edition smart tellies outside of the U.S. or Canada.
