Want the power of Alexa linked directly to your 4K Ultra HD entertainment system? Are you craving crystal clear picture alongside access to all your favorite channels, apps and more? Then look no further than the Amazon Fire TV 4-Series. Right now, you can get a 55-inch model for just $350 (was $520).
If you're already a fan of the Fire Stick or have Alexa hooked up in every room, you're going to love the Amazon Fire TV 4-Series. It features 4K Ultra HD, which means you get four times the number of pixels than an average 1080p Full HD screen, increasing brightness, clarity and the depth and scope of colors.
The TV is also incredibly intuitive to use. When you start your TV, you'll automatically be shown an easy-to-navigate home screen that features all your favorite apps, cable or satellite TV, video games and more. Have all your subscriptions — like Netflix, Prime Video and Hulu, just to name a few — all in one place and stream whenever and however you want.
The best part? The Fire TV automatically updates when new Alexa skills, features or smart-home capabilities debut, so your TV technology will always stay up-to-date. You can also link your Fire TV with your other smart-home devices, so you can tell Alexa to dim the lights in your living room all while watching your favorite shows.
Shoppers absolutely love this TV. In fact, more than 8,900 reviewers have given it five stars.
"There really isn't anything bad to say about this TV," one five-star reviewer said. "Great picture, very easy to mount, and the setup was super easy. Since I already had Fire devices, it just transferred all the info to the new TV. The whole process with the update and such took less than 10 minutes. At this price, just great."
Another added, "I have owned this 55-inch TV for about a week now. It’s beyond my expectations for a TV at this price. It’s about a third of the cost that I paid for a 42-inch TV 20 years ago and the picture is much better. The delivery was great and setup was easy. I am a 73-year-old woman and was able to remove it from the package and install the feet by myself with no help."
This reviewer was most impressed by the picture, saying, "I had no idea that UHD would make such a difference. I've done nothing but watch my fave movies, even the oldies (like John Wayne)."
TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas voters have said no to him twice over the past four years. But Kris Kobach is nonetheless betting that this can be the year he makes a political comeback. His losses, including a 2018 defeat that handed the governor's office in this Republican-leaning state to a Democrat, might end other political careers. But Kobach, who built a national reputation as an immigration hard-liner while Kansas secretary of state, is now aiming for the state attorney general's office. He f
About 230 Ukrainian citizens are expected to arrive in Regina on Monday evening aboard a humanitarian flight from Poland. The provincial government said the nine-hour flight from Warsaw, the Polish capital, is expected to arrive at 5:05 p.m. CST Monday, meeting the provincial immigration minister's target date.

OTTAWA — The federal government says it has signed a $20-billion final settlement agreement to compensate First Nations children and families harmed by chronic underfunding of child welfare. The Assembly of First Nations and plaintiffs in two class-action lawsuits agreed to the deal, which also accounts for the government's narrow definition of Jordan's Principle. Indigenous Services Canada says the settlement is the largest in Canadian history. The $20 billion accounts for half of an overall $4
Environment Canada has issued a heat warning for Windsor and Essex County for Monday and Tuesday. The weather authority warns temperatures will be near 31 C, with humidex values in the low forties on Tuesday. Overnight, lows are expected to be about 21 C, which will offer little relief.

The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit has issued a heat warning based off of Environment Canada's information, warning residents to
While hundreds of Quebecers found themselves without a home after Moving Day on July 1, the housing crunch is taking its toll on another group this year. Montreal's SPCA says it took in about 600 animals in the past three months from renters who said they couldn't take their animals with them because their new building doesn't allow pets. "It's something we see every year," said the shelter's executive director Elise Desaulniers. She said the number of surrendered animals during this year's movi
A memorial bike ride was held Sunday in downtown Vancouver to honour a well-loved cyclist who lost his life in a crash in the West End last week. Agustín Beltrán, 28, was killed in a collision with a dump truck at the intersection of Hornby Street and Pacific Boulevard on Wednesday. Beltrán was a first-year PhD student at the University of British Columbia. He studied environmental and applied microeconomics, according to the university's website.

Starting July 25, new arrivals will be eligible for temporary assistance for six months to cover basic expenses such as food, clothing and rent.

ALGIERS, Algeria (AP) — Algeria is celebrating 60 years of independence from France on Tuesday with nationwide ceremonies, a pardon of 14,000 prisoners and its first military parade in years. The events mark the country's official declaration of independence on July 5, 1962, after a brutal seven-year war which ended 132 years of colonial rule. The war, which killed at least 1.5 million people, remains a point of tension in relations between Algeria and France. “A day of glory for a new era" is t
CAIRO (Reuters) -Two women were killed in shark attacks in Egypt's Red Sea, south of the city of Hurghada, the Egyptian Ministry of Environment said on Sunday. It also mentioned that the Governor of the Red Sea Governorate, Major General Amr Hanafi, has issued an order to suspend all activity in the area surrounding the attacks. A security source also added that the Austrian woman had been living in Egypt over the past five years with her Egyptian husband.
CANAZEI, Italy (AP) — Rescuers using drones resumed the search Tuesday for an estimated 13 hikers unaccounted-for following an avalanche in northern Italy that killed at least seven people and is being blamed in large part on rising temperatures that are melting glaciers. After rain hampered the search Monday, sunny weather on Tuesday allowed helicopters to bring more rescue teams up to the site on the Marmolada glacier, east of Bolzano in the Dolomites mountain range. A huge chunk of the glacie
A Calgary police officer killed on duty is being honoured by a Metro Vancouver Transit Police namesake — a four-legged one. Harnett is a two-year-old German shorthaired pointer who is an explosive detection police dog. She's named for Sgt. Andrew Harnett, who was killed during a traffic stop on New Year's Eve 2020 in Calgary after an SUV he'd pulled over took off with the officer hanging onto the driver's side of the vehicle. "We wish to thank the Metro Vancouver Transit Police for honouring Sgt
OTTAWA — The Conservative Party of Canada raised the most money of any federal party in 2021, bringing in $26.4 million in donations during a tumultuous year that ended with an election loss and speculation about the end of Erin O'Toole's leadership. Audited financial statements filed with Elections Canada show that's just shy of $6 million more than the party raised in 2020, and the number of people who gave money to the Tories -- 95,000 -- was up by about 5,000 year-over-year. Justin Trudeau's
Some N.W.T. communities are under a heat warning this week with temperatures anticipated to hit 30 C in some Arctic regions. Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) issued the warning for Aklavik, Inuvik, Fort Good Hope, Norman Wells, Tulita, Fort McPherson, Tsiigehtchic and surrounding areas. Though Natalie Hasell — a warning preparedness meteorologist with ECCC — said it's more common for heat waves to occur in southern N.W.T. communities, it's not unheard of to have higher temperatures i
Pope Francis has dismissed reports that he plans to resign in the near future, saying he is on track to visit Canada this month and hopes to be able to go to Moscow and Kyiv as soon as possible after that. In an exclusive interview in his Vatican residence, Francis also denied rumours that he had cancer, joking that his doctors "didn't tell me anything about it", and for the first time gave details of the knee condition that has prevented him carrying out some duties. In a 90-minute conversation on Saturday afternoon, conducted in Italian, with no aides present, the 85-year-old pontiff also repeated his condemnation of abortion following the U.S. Supreme Court ruling last month.
