Besides its own TV hardware, Amazon is partnering with various OEM manufacturers and TV makers to embed its Fire TV platform that provides access to streaming services like Amazon, Disney+, HBO, and Netflix. These are mid-range TVs with 4K resolution and 120Hz LCD panels that will compete with the likes of LG, Samsung, TCL and Vizio in the US.

Toshiba's new M-Series Fire TVs

The LCD TVs are equipped with local dimming capabilities for improved contrast and backlight control. Toshiba told CNET that the M-Series have "up to 48" dimming zones – presumably in the largest screen size. They support HDR10, Dolby Vision, and Dolby Atmos decoding. There are four HDMI 2.0 ports with support for a single backwards compatible HDMI 2.1 feature; ALLM for auto-switching into Game Mode with a compatible game console. The TVs are powered by Amazon's Fire TV platform so they also support Alexa voice commands. There is hands-free Alexa functionality through a built-in microphone. You can disable the microphone, if you prefer not to use it. In addition, they support AirPlay 2. The Toshiba M-Series is available in three sizes 55 inches (55M550KU) for $800, 65 inches (65M550KU) for $1,000 and 75 inches (75M550KU) for $1,200, but retail prices have already been slashed $150. The TVs are available now from Best Buy. - Source: Amazon and Toshiba via CNET
