AmazonFirelifestyle 21Dec2017Amazon has added with immediate effect the ability for all of its Fire TV devices in over 100 countries and territories to launch Mozilla Firefox and Amazon Silk browsers on their TV.

Fire TV customers already have access to more than 500,000 movies and TV episodes, and tens of thousands of apps and channels as well as Alexa skills. “With full web browsers on Fire TV, our customers’ entertainment and information options are greatly expanded. We want to make it easy for customers to access the Web from the comfort of their couch,” explained Marc Whitten, vice president, Amazon Fire TV and Appstore. “We’re excited to bring web browsing to customers on every Fire TV device in every country where they’re sold.” Amazon Silk has been optimised for Fire TV by designing what Amazon calls a true television viewing experience that is best enjoyed from the couch.

“Bringing Firefox to Fire TV is an exciting new way to reach our users and serve up more of the full web to everyone,” added Mark Mayo, senior vice president of Firefox. “Firefox has always been about bringing the web directly to people no matter what device they’re using. Starting today, we will be able to expand the already great Fire TV experience by enabling viewers to surface a multitude of web content, including videos, through Firefox.”
