Amazon offers Fire TV fans a 30-day free hardware trial

Amazon is offering some Prime members a 30-day free trial of the Fire TV set top box, but the deal is via invitation only

Amazon launched its Fire TV set top box a while back and the $99 device got a lot of streaming TV fans excited. The big catch was that the device proved so popular that Amazon sold out of Fire TV boxes only a few days after it was announced. That supply issue has now been sorted and the Fire TV is in stock again.


To get people who are interested in the Fire TV to try it out, Amazon has announced a free trial. Buyers can apply an offer that will let them get the Fire TV shipped to their door at no cost and you don't have to pay for the box for a full month.

If you don't like the Fire TV, you can return it and pay nothing. If you like the set top box Amazon will charge you the $99 after 30 days. If you don't want to keep the box, Amazon says just send it in before the trial ends. The special deal is via invitation only and some Prime members have received the invite already.
