The latest batch from Toshiba are only available in the United States right now, although we’ve got our fingers crossed that availability in the UK will be announced pretty soon. Those who want a Fire TV set from Toshiba will have a choice of five screen sizes, ranging from 43-inch to 75-inches. The release of these models will be staggered, with orders for the 43-inch and the 50-inch variants available in the US right now, while the 55-inch, 65-inch and 75-inch models are expected later this year.
Compared to its previous Fire TV efforts, Toshiba has slimmed down the bezels around the screen, so the set will occupy less room on your media unit – despite having the same expansive screen size for movies. There’s also an extra HDMI and USB port compared to its previous Fire TV foray, which is perfect for anyone who has kitted themselves out with a new games console, Blu-Ray player, or HDMI ARC-compatible sounder in the last few months. All sets are compatible with 4K resolution, Dolby Vision, and HDR10.
Naturally, Amazon’s chatty voice assistant Alexa is present and correct too. Changing channels, searching for shows with your favourite actors, and getting the latest weather and traffic information can all be handled with a quick voice command. For instance, saying “Alexa, set bass to 3” will change the audio preferences – without the need to pick up the remote and start digging through elaborate menus.
