Indeed, according to rumors, the social media network has approached steaming companies to discuss a potential partnership to bring their services to a new device made for TVs.

Logitech Harmony Smart Control down to $50 ($80 off) on Amazon

Even though most TVs in our living rooms are becoming smart ones, we often connect them to third-party devices such as set-top boxes, sound systems, and DVD/Blu-Ray players. Using a separate remote control for each can be a pain, mainly because at least one of them is likely to vanish, but also because it's simply inconvenient to switch between several controllers. With the Harmony Smart Control kit, Logitech offers to group all these remotes into a single one, and even control your devices using your phone or smart speaker. Originally sold at $130, the product is now down to $50, which is quite an attractive discount.

If you binge watch enough Shark Week on your Fire tablet or TV, Amazon will give you $25

If you like seeing aquatic animals with sharp teeth using their enamel to great effect, Discovery is hosting another of its annual Shark Weeks right now and it's taking the opportunity to let Fire TV and tablet viewers "Stream it Forward." It has partnered with Amazon to donate up to $75,000 to the Discovery Oceana Shark Fund. If you happen to go for a swim by August 4, you might get a sweet $25 out of it, too, though you will have to navigate through some catches — and we're not talking about prawns.

Review: Logitech Harmony Express is a universal remote for people with more money than time

The ultimate and original automation convenience is the universal remote: a simple gadget that replaces all your similar devices, turning elaborate multi-step operations into a one-button convenience. Logitech's Harmony series of remotes and hubs have offered one of the best experiences out there, but at the cost of a complex setup and maintenance process. The new Harmony Express streamlines almost everything about the experience, but I don't think that convenience is worth the sky-high price tag.

AirTV Mini is an $80 4K Android TV stick with Sling on-board

Dish-owned AirTV came out in 2017 with a 4K HDR Android TV streaming box that can plug into an antenna for local over-the-air broadcasts — thus combining local TV with over-the-top services ranging from Netflix to YouTube to Sling (another Dish property) in one input. But what if you have other TV sets you'd like to hook up? Surely you'd want to avoid the hassle of getting another AirTV box, right? Well, the company has come out with a new stick that acts as an OTT streamer on its own, but can also relay OTA with the help of an existing AirTV unit.

USA Network gets an Android TV app

There's a general notion out there that USA Network, which NBCUniversal owns, typically acts as the receptacle for second-rate programming that NBC would not air to its white bread primetime audience on any given night. But it's since grown to be what Showtime is to CBS: a home for popular older series like "Law & Order," acclaimed dramas like "Mr. Robot," and a major destination for sports superfans — namely, WWE. To think that it has lacked an Android TV app for the longest time might be unbelievable to some of us, but at last, USA Network finally has such an app.

TCL's best 4K HDR 55" TV is at its lowest price ever if you buy with an Amazon credit card

While we're not usually fans of "cash back" discount schemes as stand-ins for real sales, when making a big ticket purchase, they can be huge motivators to get products off shelves. Today is definitely such an occasion, with TCL's well-reviewed and range-topping R617 55" 4K HDR TV available for effectively $450 after rewards are taken into account when you using a qualifying Amazon credit card to make your purchase.

The TV is already on sale for its lowest price on Amazon ever ($530), but Amazon is offering an additional 10% in rewards cash back (on top of the standard 5% for the Prime Visa) on this specific model, meaning once those rewards points hit your account, you'll get back nearly $80 in Amazon Rewards.
