The Amazon Echo TV will be a big deal when it hits the Amazon retail stores later this month, but for now the Amazon Echo device is in a relatively quiet phase.
It’s still in development, and a lot of the Echo devices that will be available at launch will be smaller, less capable versions of the device that will sell for a much lower price.
Amazon has confirmed that the Echo will be priced between $80 and $120.
However, that’s a bit steep considering that you’ll be able to purchase the Echo for less than $100.
The Echo is expected to be available on Amazon’s website for $79.99 starting September 27.
While you can still get a cheap Echo starter kit for $29.99 that includes everything you’ll need, it doesn’t come with a full Alexa-enabled home theater system like the Echo Dot or Echo Dot Plus.
If you want the best of both worlds with the Echo TV, however, you’ll want to head over to the Amazon Store and pick up an Echo TV Starter Kit for $89.99.
The starter kit is meant to be used with a basic Alexa-controlled home theater setup, but the Amazon listing lists a few additional features that you can add to the Echo in order to create a more powerful and versatile home theater solution.
The device includes: The Echo TV remote (which is already compatible with Amazon’s other Echo devices) with a 2.2-megapixel camera that captures 1080p video, a microphone and a headphone jack
