Technology Amazon adds new Fire TV Blaster to boost Fire TV home theater control
Apple TV app is now available on the Fire TV Stick
Apple wants to make Apple TV+ available in as many places as possible. Yes, you have heard us say that before. Just last week, the Apple TV app arrived on Roku, and today, Amazon announced that the Apple TV app is available on the Fire TV Stick (2nd Gen) and Fire TV Stick 4K -- in the US, Canada, UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain and India. When Apple TV+ launches on November 1st, the streaming service will be available on those devices, too. Through the app, users will have access to their iTunes libraries and all of the TV shows and movies they've already purchased or rented through Apple. Of course, the app will allow users to sign up for Apple TV+ even if they don't own an Apple device.
Have a Fire TV Stick and want to have Alexa control your home theater set up? You soon will be able to. On Tuesday Amazon announced a new Fire TV Blaster, infrared (IR) transmitter that can be used to control your TV, cable box and speaker with Alexa as opposed to using traditional remote controls.
Not a standalone device, the Blaster requires an Echo smart speaker or display and either a Fire TV Stick 4K , third-generation Fire TV or Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote in order to control your TV.
Disney reaches deal with Amazon to put Disney+ on Fire TV devices
Disney and Amazon have made upCEO Bob Iger announced the news on Disney’s fourth quarter earnings call, alongside news that Disney+ will also be available on LG and Samsung smart TVs. “We’re pleased to announce partnerships with Amazon Fire [TV], LG, and Samsung devices.
For those that have a smart speaker and one of the aforementioned Fire TVs , Amazon says that by adding the Blaster you'll gain "hands-free voice control to your existing TV, soundbar , cable or satellite box, and receiver" continuing to add that it'll even allow you to "control power, volume, and playback and switch between inputs" using just your voice.
If your Fire TV Stick came with an Alexa remote, adding the Fire TV Blaster will allow you to control your devices without having to press the microphone button. There are no microphones built-into the Blaster, however, which is why the company requires pairing with an Echo.
Amazon has incorporated IR control into some of its products in the past, including the Fire TV Cube , but it has not previously added the functionality into its Fire TV Sticks. The Fire TV Blaster won't work with Amazon's own Fire TV Edition televisions or soundbars.
Available, the Blaster will be released on December 11 and retail for $35.
