Amazon Fire TV Finally Gets the ITV Player

By Gerald Lynch on at

With revamped Amazon Fire TV hardware on ready to be plugged into tellies, now comes along a fresh streaming app for the dongle/box duo. As promised, ITV has brought its ITV Player to the online retailer's streaming units – despite the fact it intends to roll-out an all-new player before the end of the year. The rollout is staggered (Fire TV Stick owners will have to wait a few extra weeks for their on-demand X-Factor fix), but the app will auto-update to the forthcoming live-TV-focussed ITV Hub when that eventually is revealed.
