The TV trend this Amazon Prime Day is shopping for products that will help you get rid of your cable subscription.

Don't wait until Black Friday to improve your entertainment options. If you want to cut the cord while still modernizing your TV-watching experience, Amazon's Prime Day deals mean you don't have to wait any longer.

From now until the end of Prime Day, just before midnight PT on Tuesday night (unless they sell out), the following products will be significantly marked down:

Fire TV Stick

Amazon has released its newest streaming device, and this one is equipped with Alexa Voice Remote. It might seem like a frivolous add-on, but we've found in testing that it's a useful feature. Consider it one of those things you never knew you needed until you have it.

If you aren't sold yet, the Fire TV Stick allows you to get rid of your cable subscription because it gives you access to your favorite streaming apps like Netflix, Hulu, HBO Go, and Prime Video. You can also add DirecTV Now or Sling TV to ensure you don't miss the live TV shows you love.

Also, the Fire TV Stick allows you to go mobile with your shows. Just plug it into to any HDMI port, pair with a WiFi signal, and you can utilize the technology wherever. It's an ideal setup for those who travel a lot and don't want to be beholden to a hotel room's limited cable package.

From now until the end of the Prime Day (or when they sell out; whichever comes first), a Fire TV Stick is $20 off.

Fire TV

If you have no interest in traveling with your streaming device and want a more powerful option to stay docked with your TV, consider going with Fire TV. It can unlock the crystal-clear picture of your 4K TV, has improved sound capability, and runs quicker than the stick thanks to its impressive processor.

The Fire TV also comes with Alexa Voice Remote or you can pair it to the Echo device you already have, which is a useful feature for those who can't keep track of their remote controls.

The Fire TV is a cord-cutting option for the serious TV watcher and it's being sold for $35 less than usual.

Fire TV Cube

Maybe you want the full experience but have no interest in cutting the cord. Maximize your entertainment options with the newly released Fire TV Cube, Amazon's most powerful streaming media player, which has all the features of the other two and is also on sale.

The Fire TV Cube has a more powerful microphone so you can shout your demands at it from farther away. It can also connect with your cable or satellite box to change channels with the sound of your voice.

Finally, it has a built-in speaker so you can use it to make a richer sound or play music, utilizing the tens of millions of songs you can unlock with a $3.99/month add-on to your Amazon subscription.

Toshiba 50-inch 4K Ultra HD Smart TV

You can get all the fancy streaming devices in the world, but if you have a lacking TV, it won't matter. Fortunately, you can take care of that during Prime Day as well.

The Toshiba model on sale now comes with Fire TV built into it already, so you can utilize the Alexa Voice Remote that comes with the television and watch all of your favorite streaming services without any additional setup.

It also comes with an incredibly clear picture and sleek design that could transform your living room. Get a new Toshiba 50-inch 4K Ultra HD Smart TV now, as they're being sold for $110 less than usual.
