Following the successful launch in October 2015 of live TV streaming app TVPlayer on Amazon Fire, live streaming and live-to-VoD solutions provider Simplestream has confirmed that pay-TV lite streaming service TVPlayer Plus is now available on Amazon Fire TV, which brings the total offering of channels to 75 within a single app for a low-cost monthly subscription of £4.99 (€6.40) per month.

Amazon Fire TV users can now sign up for 19 premium channels with TVPlayer Plus, a live and catch-up TV service, offering even more choice than ever before. Lifetime, HISTORY, H2, Crime + Investigation, Discovery, TLC, Investigation Discovery (ID), Animal Planet, Discovery Turbo, Eurosport, National Geographic Channel, Nat Geo WILD, Sony Channel, Sony Movie Channel, Boomerang, Cartoon Network, Cartoonito and BabyTV are all now available to Amazon Fire TV users, with more to follow soon. Users can find the TVPlayer app on the Fire TV Appstore through their remote control, or using Voice Search.

“TVPlayer is one of Amazon Fire TV’s most popular Entertainment apps. It has proved to be extremely popular with Fire TV customers since it launched in the UK and has received a further boom in the number of users since the launch of Fire TV Stick and pre-Christmas,” noted Lewis Arthur, Operations Director of TVPlayer. “We are extremely excited about the launch of TVPlayer Plus on Amazon Fire TV, which offers a broad range of premium content for such an affordable price to Amazon Fire TV users.”

Fire TV has quickly become Amazon’s top-selling device family, and Fire TV Stick has become Amazon’s fastest-selling device ever. Customers can enjoy TVPlayer Plus on Fire TV devices including the Fire TV, which comes with support for 4K Ultra HD and offers 75 per cent faster processing, 802.11ac MIMO Wi-Fi, 2x more efficient video encoding, as well as customer-favourite features, such as voice search, Advanced Streaming and Prediction (ASAP) and X-Ray for Movies and TV Shows.
