Amazon Fire TV
It’s finally happened, All 4 which appeared on the latest generation Amazon Fire TVs last year, has at last made its way to all devices, ending the Fire TV fragmentation for UK apps and completing the line-up to create the most comprehensive collection of UK FTA services on any single platform.
At the beginning of this month we reported that older Fire TV boxes and sticks from Amazon began their rollout of OS 5.0.5, and consequently predicted All 4 to follow shortly. We can now confirm that this is official and All 4 is scheduled for this month.
We’ve been waiting a long time for the Fire TV’s OS 5.0.5 update, and it’s finally on its way. Besides adding new features to older Fire TVs including the Stick such as Alexa support, more importantly we’re hoping this will pave the way for All 4 and ITV Hub to appear on all Fire TV devices.
For those here who like to talk to their appliances, the Amazon Fire TV has just received a slew of new ways to converse with your set-top-box, including a new custom phrase functionality, connected home integration and local business information.
The Amazon Fire TV makes for one of the best platforms for watching UK television abroad. Supporting a wide range of UK streaming apps, combined with an easy way to unblock geographic restrictions via SmartDNS such as Getflix, and all for a great price, we’ll show you how easy it is to watch UK television wherever in the world you are.
Amazon shook the streaming world when they first launched the original Fire TV, and over a year later, they’ve updated it with a brand new second generation 4K model. Check out our review to see how it stacks up against the competition!
