Amazon's Fire TV launches in the UK today, and TVPlayer is one of a top selection of entertainment apps to feature on the platform from launch.

Following the hugely successful launch on Amazon Fire tablets, TVPlayer has now been reimagined for the big screen. Users can easily find TVPlayer within the Fire TV Appstore, whether through their remote control or voice search. 

TVPlayer will feature in the Entertainment section of the Fire TV Appstore and is free to download. The app has been streamlined for Fire TV - viewers will find a slick interface from where they can select the channel they want to watch from the homepage. The TVPlayer app also offers users the opportunity to choose from the channel list, what's ‘On Now', and click from the show which appears on the transparent overlay using their Fire TV remote.

Lewis Arthur, Platform Manager of TVPlayer said"Fire TV is a great piece of technology and we are delighted to have been invited by Amazon to form part of the UK launch. This demonstrates TVPlayer's commitment to making its popular content available to new audiences and users across multiple platforms."

The TVPlayer app for Amazon Fire TV has been developed by Simplestream, leaders in live TV streaming for the broadcast and media industry.

Fire TV is available from now, priced at just £79.

TVPlayer can be watched for free at, by downloading the TVPlayer app from the App StoreGoogle Play and the Amazon Appstore, and via channel 241 on Freeview.
