Best Buy to sell Toshiba & Insignia sets running on Amazon Fire TV

Best Buy CEO Hubert Joly and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.                  Amazon Best Buy

Beginning this summer with a TV from Toshiba, the agreement signs Best Buy on to sell more than 10 4K and HD Fire TV Edition models from Insignia and Toshiba to customers in the USA and Canada in the future. "Roku TVs are available at Best Buy and are sold across all the major retailers, making it easy for consumers to choose from dozens of Roku TV models".

They will have Amazon Fire TV built in, as well as a voice-activated remote with Alexa and Echo.

Jeff Bezos, founder as well as CEO of Amazon, points out that Amazon has always been collaborating with Best Buy, and the latest partnership now takes things to the next level. The deal will begin with "more than 11" models of Insignia and Toshiba TVs going on sale at Best Buys this summer. The new Fire TV Edition smart TVs will be available for purchase in Canada later this year. These Fire Edition smart TVs by Insignia and deliver lovely visuals and all the movies and TV shows you love, with an experience that gets better every day with Alexa. This will be the first time Best Buy sells products on Amazon. It has since added other Amazon devices to its lineup including Fire tablets and TV sticks for streaming content. Google's Chromecast can be plugged into a TV to offer streaming services and the company also has the Google Home speaker, complete with its own nameless voice assistant. Roku shares fell 7% Wednesday as a result.

Best Buy said it plans only to sell the Fire TV models on Amazon's site, and no other products.

As of 7:40 a.m. (PT), TMZ wrote that Ferrell has since been released from the hospital and didn't suffer any significant injuries. Ferrell wasn't driving the SUV, TMZ reports. "Three patients considered to have minor injuries were taken to local hospitals".

The move will make Best Buy a preferred third-party seller on Amazon.com, but one might wonder how far Amazon will push this deal in their favor.

This is all great news for Best Buy. However, Best Buy's partnership with Amazon indicates that Amazon doesn't need to make an acquisition to reach consumers who need to see a TV in person before buying it.

The new arrangement is an exclusive partnership for multiple years, and should yield more exciting products in the future.
