One of the main complaints from users about the Fire TV hardware is that not all streaming apps are on there yet. Well, part of that has been resoled with BINGE and Kayo Sports making an appearance.
While not as popular as the likes of Disney and Netflix, BINGE is where you’ll need to go for some of the latest shows from around the world. The genres are broad from crime, to comedy, drama, documentaries and movies; giving you something for every occasion.
Kayo Sports is Australia’s streaming home to all things sport…
AFL, Rugby, Cricket, Motorsport and Darts to name a few, with continual improvement on the app and streaming options.
At the release of the update, Cate Hefele, Executive Director of Kayo Sports said:
Kayo Sports is the go-to destination for streaming the world’s best sports and with AFL, NRL and motorsport in full swing, there has never been a better time to have access to Kayo Sports with every game, every round, live and on demand, plus all the best shows and commentary across the week.
It’s a significant step for the Fire TV platform, opening the door for households that want to stream all their services through a single device. This equates to over 200,000+ movies and TV shows from services including Netflix, Prime Video, Stan, Paramount+, YouTube, Disney+, Apple TV+ and 7plus as a starting point.
Patrick Walker, Country Manager of Amazon Devices brought this into focus when he said:
Our customers love entertainment, and BINGE and Kayo Sports have been at the top of their wishlist in terms of the content they want to watch at home on Fire TV, Fire TV brings together the best of local and international entertainment to the big screen for Australian families, with a fast, intuitive and personalised smart TV experience. With BINGE and Kayo Sports, the cinematic experience extends on our promise for endless entertainment.
Given my smart home has been steadily transitioning to Alexa devices, a Fire TV device may well be next on the shopping list.
