Amazon Fire TV’s Secret Weapons

Fire TV devices have been sold for years loaded with apps that allow users to access pirated content. It also allows users to add media centers like Kodi and others that organize links and APKS alongside official Amazon apps. But its ability to support browsers meant that when YouTube couldn’t play nice with Amazon it could circumvent the need for a YouTube app by setting up special browsers built for Fire TV that linked into YouTube’s website. During the fight between Amazon and HBO Max and Peacock, which also embroils Roku, Fire TV users can still add these apps. – Ryan Downey, The Streaming Advisor »
