Starting today, Fire TV Stick (2nd Gen) and Fire TV Stick 4K customers all around the world can download and begin using the all-new Apple TV app. Inside the Apple TV app, you’ll have access to your entire iTunes library, including all of TV shows and movies that you’ve already purchased or rented from Apple, and soon Apple TV+ (more on that below). As soon as I logged into my iCloud account, Elf and Hocus Pocus popped into my library — praise to the streaming gods!
To buy or rent something, you can simply do so on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, PC, and it will instantly appear within the Apple TV app on Fire TV. If you plan on subscribing to the new Apple TV+ streaming service launching on November 1st, it will be accessible via Fire TV sticks as well.
To install the Apple TV app, just search for "Apple TV". You can also use Alexa to install the app by saying, “Alexa, find the Apple TV app”. Once the app has been downloaded you can open it by saying, “Alexa, open the Apple TV app.”
Fire TV Stick (2nd Gen) and Fire TV Stick 4K customers will be able to download the app starting today in the US, Canada, UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain and India. Fire TV Basic Edition customers in over 50 countries can also find the Apple TV app in the Amazon Appstore on their Fire TV. The app will be coming soon to Fire TV Cube (1st and 2nd Gen), Fire TV (3rd Gen pendant design), Toshiba and Insignia Fire TV Edition smart TVs, and Nebula sound bar. The Apple TV app is not compatible with Fire TV (1st and 2nd Gen) and Fire TV Stick (1st Gen).
