As title states, Amazon Fire TV, 2nd gen on sale for $79.99 less $20 student Prime discount = $59.99.

Reviews so far are not as great as the previous gen but I am hoping they will work out the bugs. Per Amazon's response to the top review, they are working on pushing an update out soon that addresses the 5.1 issue.

You can still side load Kodi but there are a few kinks. http://www.aftvnews.com/sideloadi...n-fire-tv/

There are a few conveniences that don’t quite work yet as a result of Fire OS 5. For starters, reassigning an app to launch Kodi with Llama does not work anymore. Also, as we’ve known for a while, FireStarter’s detection of the home button has issues with Fire OS 5.

EDIT// Don't forget to buy the $25 Amazon Gift card from the thread below to get $5 promotional credit. You can then apply it to your Amazon Fire TV order and save another $5.

Misleading title. It's $79.99 for the Student Member price.

ABOVE IS NOT RIGHT

When I choose the five monthly payments, the student savings changes to only $16. With outright payment, the student savings is $20.

I did not enter any coupon codes for the Amazon TV but I did just purchase $25 in Amazon gift card for the $5 promotional credit a few minutes earlier.

why would you? at $59 it's worth the wait for software or hardware fixes.
