Android Central 179: Amazon Fire TV!

4 Comments

I think you need to hold Amazon to account a little more for not supporting formats like Chromecast or Android devices for their content. They would make more money from me if they supported Android and Chromecast. False restrictions are just a little too tedious.

Yes, my wallet always does the voting. I know they are entitled to do it, just think their desperation to lock some people in to their services will keep a wider audience away.

I would likely have bought this to play with (if/when it comes to the UK) but I wouldn't buy one for every screen in my house. The inability to throw purchased Amazon content and Prime Videos to all the Chromecasts I have, makes this purchase not happen and future content purchases not happen. It also makes me a little more likely to kill my Prime membership, which in turns makes it more likely for me to buy major items from their competitors. They have an app that works on Android and choose to not serve the largest proportion of mobile and tablet users in the global market. All feels incredibly short sighted.
