The box is a companion DVR that lets you watch, record, and replay free over-the-air programming to any Fire TV, Echo Show, and on compatible Fire tablet and mobile devices. The companion app will help with the setup process so that things run as smoothly as can be, and once you've found the flawless spot, the antenna sends its signal through the Recast which then beams your local TV channels to your Amazon Fire TVs and Echo Shows. "Now with Fire TV Recast, we've made it simpler to find, watch, and record live over-the-air TV at home and on your mobile devices".

Fire TV Recast delivers the most reliable video streams over Wi-Fi of any over-the-air DVR. Amazon said you can pre-order it now and it will launch later this year.

Today Amazon announced the new OTA DVR for the Fire TV called the Fire TV Recast.

As part of the setup process, the Recast app will tell you the best place to put the antenna and the device in your house.
