Prime Day: Free TV on Parade!

Amazon has discounted their Recast DVRs $100 for Prime Day.  If you are a Prime member, you can get the four tuner model for $179.99 or the two tuner model for $129.99.  I recommend the four tuner model for the tuners and additional storage — 150 hours vs 75.  As of this morning, you can get one 4K Fire TV Stick for $24.99 if you ask Alexa to show Prime Day deals.  Add an antenna and you have subscription free television for $200.

In Amazon Prime: Something for Everyone, I noted that Philo and Vue integrated into the Recast program guide.  Since, I have learned that Pluto integrates as well.  Pluto is FREE.  Install the Pluto app on your Fire TV device and the following channels will be added to your program guide (courtesy of The Daily Dot)…

  1. How are you liking the Recast so far? It’s a lot better when compared to what they released originally, a lot of improvement to the interface.

    I still have to use Emby server, it’s what my 84 year old mom is used to and there is no remote capability outside of smart phone for Recast and she only has flip phone. She does ok with Emby!


    • I love it! My kids love it! I just added Pluto which includes Newsmax and other second tier cable news outlets as well as a lot of movies (if you are OK with ads) plus all the mindless stuff that fills the cable guide.

      I really like having OTA on my Echo Shows, using a single remote, and having a whole house DVR. I use the included HDMI extender to hang the Sticks behind each television and get power right off a USB port on the television. The Echo complains about that the first time, but works fine.

      Of course, the price is right. If you get a two tuner Recast and a pair of 4K sticks on Prime Day, the total cost is less than $200 — much less than a TiVo and two Minis or a Tablo with Lifetime and two streamers.

      Amazon gets two thumbs up from me on this one!
