Amazon is offering its Fire TV Blaster for $19.99 shipped. For comparison, it goes for $35 normally, our last mention was $30, and today’s deal marks a new all-time low that we’ve tracked. The Fire TV Blaster is built to work with your existing Fire TV and Alexa devices to command TVs and soundbars that otherwise wouldn’t have voice controls. It does this by repeating the IR sequence required by your devices to control them, something standard streaming media players aren’t capable of. This can be useful if your TV doesn’t support CEC or if your soundbar isn’t ARC-compatible. Rated 4+ stars from over 60% of shoppers and you can learn more in our announcement coverage.
If you’re just wanting to extend an IR signal from one device to another, check out this USB-powered option for around $9.50 Prime shipped when you clip the on-page coupon. It isn’t compatible with voice commands but you’ll find that it does the trick at making your IR blast reach areas otherwise not possible.
Speaking of Fire TV, did you see that the Fire TV Stick Lite is currently at its second-best price yet? Right now, it’s just $22, which is $7 off its normal going rate.

Plus, it works flawlessly with the Fire TV Blaster in today’s lead deal, further expanding your smart home.
