Walmart Drops the Fire TV and Fire Stick From Their Stores




Want a Fire Stick or Fire TV? If you want it from Walmart, you better hurry.

Recently Walmart dropped the Fire TV from its stores and website. It has even removed all promotional material for the Fire TV from its stores and replaced it with Roku ad space. Searching for the Fire TV on Walmart just brings up Roku players and Mi Box along with other streaming devices.

No press release was given and no one replied to our requests for comment. It is possible Walmart and Amazon had a falling out or that Walmart got tired of waiting for new stock that always seems to be on back order.

Amazon has been having a hard time keeping the Fire TV in stock recently. Even on there have been long waits to get a Fire TV. Best Buy does not have a Fire Stick in stock within 250 miles of my office the last time we looked.

So why is the Fire TV hard to get right now? Amazon recently started selling the second generation Fire Stick in the United Kingdom and is getting ready to start selling a smart TV with a built-in Fire TV. Many have pointed to this as being the reason for the long wait times to get a Fire TV. There are even rumors that Amazon is getting ready to launch the Fire Stick in India.

There is also a growing market of scalpers buying up the Fire TV and the Fire Stick to resell them, putting even more pressure on Amazon.

Don’t go to Walmart, at least for now, if you want a Fire TV or Fire Stick because you will likely not find one in stock.
