While Amazon and Best Buy both sell a lot of TVs online, he said consumers still like going to physical stores to make such purchases, a significant acknowledgment from one of the world's richest men who has made much of his fortune from selling products online.
"Amazon and Best Buy have a long history of working together, and today we take our partnership to a new level", noted Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos in a press release. The Fire Edition TVs by Insignia and Toshiba are created to work seamlessly with Amazon's own voice assistant Alexa.
It's something of a peace offering by Amazon, lulling Best Buy into this idea of a fantasy land where the two companies can work together in flawless harmony. "Our partnership with Amazon is exciting because we believe Fire TV Edition delivers an incredible user experience and further strengthens the growing connection between home theater, home automation and voice control".
At a launch event Tuesday in Bellevue, Wash., Best Buy and Amazon executives declined to discuss the financial terms of their deal, the Wall Street Journal reported.
