The belated additions means the Fire TV line-up now includes catch up services from all the UK’s major broadcasters (BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5). In all Fire TV features over 4,200 channels, apps and games.
“With BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4 and My5, every single UK customer with a Fire TV or Fire TV Stick now has access to all of the UK’s most popular catch-up services,” said Jorrit Van der Meulen, Vice President, Amazon Devices EU. “Add these to Amazon Video, Prime Video, Netflix, UKTV Play, YouTube.com, Vevo, Curzon Home Cinema and many more, and it’s clear that Fire TV customers can enjoy access to a vast and growing range of content.”
Fire TV has quickly become Amazon’s top-selling device family, and Fire TV Stick is Amazon’s fastest-selling device ever.
Also featured are Netflix, UKTV Play, Curzon Home Cinema, Sky News, Spotify, Ministry of Sound Radio, Prime Music, Vevo, Plex, MUBI, TVPlayer and YouTube.
In Germany, Magine TV has launched on the Amazon Fire TV Box, on the Amazon Fire TV Stick and on Amazon Tablets. The app contains a new zapping feature and payment through the Amazon Account, for example when signing up for pay-TV packages.
