With inbuilt Fire TV support, the new Akai smart TV runs Amazon’s made-for-TV user interface, with access to popular apps including Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, and YouTube, among others.
Akai 43-inch Full-HD Fire TV Edition price in India
Priced at Rs. 23,999, the Akai 43-inch full-HD Fire TV Edition television goes up against other high-profile smart TV launches, from brands such as Xiaomi, OnePlus, and Realme. While most options in this segment run Android TV, the Akai television stands out with Fire TV software, and is among the few televisions available in India with this software.

The new Akai television follows Onida that launched Fire TV Edition televisions in India in December 2019. Akai has also announced that more size options will be available in the Fire TV Edition range in the coming months, including a 32-inch model starting at Rs. 14,999, and 50-inch and 55-inch Ultra-HD TVs.
