Re: Nowtv and amazon firestick

Not exactly ideal, but at least a decent workaround. 

 

As Comcast has allowed Amazon Prime on their devices I am hoping they will do the same over here and of course allowing Now TV on Amazon devices.

I have just set up a Roku stick for someone and it has apps for Amazon, Now TV and Netflix.

Hi @ANDREW2601 

 

If you Samsung Smart TV doesn't support the native inbuilt NowTV App on it and you want to watch via your television screen.

 

Then you need to use either a NowTV box / Stick, Roku Player, PS4, Xbox One, ATV box gen 3 and above, Youview Box or a Google Chrome Cast (Airplay or screen mirroring doesn't work).

Re: Nowtv and amazon firestick

Thank you for replying.

At least I know now for sure.

I may buy a NOW stick but watch on my mac for now. Crazy that cannot be used on Firestick. Must be competitive issues not technology.

Many thanks for taking the trouble to educate me. 😁

Hey @ANDREW2601 

You can actually install Now TV on the Firestick. You have to sideload it which just means you install it unofficially using an APK file.

It's SUPER easy so don't worry, just follow a guide like this one: https://firestickappstips.com/now-tv-on-firestick/

 

I just made an account here to let you know as I hate how these companies all try and lock you into their own ecosystems!

 

Enjoy!
