Best Buy already sells the Amazon Kindle and other gadgets, but the deal announced Wednesday makes the electronics retailer the only place where you can walk in and buy a TV powered by Amazon's Fire TV software.

At present, there are seemingly no plans to release Fire TV Edition smart tellies outside of the United States or Canada.
When it comes to Amazon Fire TV devices, there's a little more to the equation than when FireOS was only for tablets and smartphones. Kohl's (kss) is another retailer to be working closely with Amazon, and its executives have said the move has been a boon for shopper traffic.
