Starting today Fire TV customers in the United Kingdom can access the Apple TV app. For the first time ever, users can watch the movies, TV shows and channels they purchase from Apple on their Fire TV. Beginning November 1, Apple TV +, home of all-original shows and movies from some of the world’s greatest storytellers, will also be available to subscribers on the Apple TV app on Fire TV.
The Apple TV app is the home of Apple TV+, which will feature a highly anticipated lineup of original shows, movies, and documentaries, including “The Morning Show,” “Dickinson,” “See,” “For All Mankind” and “The Elephant Queen.”
Using the Alexa Voice Remote included with every Fire TV or a paired Echo device for far-field voice control, you can easily start watching your favourite shows and movies or discover a new Apple Original from Apple TV+. Starting November 1, you can ask Alexa to start watching something specific, by saying “Alexa, watch Dickinson.” Or if you’re trying to figure out what to watch you can say, “Alexa, find dramas,” and you may see Apple TV+ originals like “The Morning Show” and “See” included in Fire TV search results.
The Apple TV app is available today for Fire TV Stick (2nd Gen) and Fire TV Stick 4K, in the United Kingdom.
The app will be available on Fire TV Cube, Fire TV (3rd Gen pendant design) and the Nebula Soundbar – Fire TV Edition before the end of the year. The app and streaming service are coming to JVC Fire TV Edition Smart 4K Ultra HD HDR LED TVs early next year.
