Perhaps you were surprised this morning by a particularly long update of your Fire TV Cube or Fire TV Stick. But have you delved into its menus to find the change of the day? The editorial staff of the Alexiens yes, of course, and is happy to announce the arrival of a new on Fire TV: live TV !
Live TV on Fire TV
You may have already spotted the "Live TV" menu. Until now empty, it foreshadowed the imminent arrival of a live television service without additional application. Although we are already lucky to be able to use a service such as Molotov.tv in France, it is now possible to do without it, Amazon just added the Live TV channels on Fire TV.
How to watch live TV on Fire TV?
Unfortunately, only France Télévisions channels are available at the moment, but you can still access France 2/3/4/5 and France Info live. Rest assured, there is no doubt thatAmazon must be activated behind the scenes to offer us as many channels as possible as quickly as possible ...
To watch live TV on Fire TV, it's easy:
- On Fire TV, go to Parameters,
- Select Live tv,
- Click on " Synchronize sources" page (in French).
You can then:
- Manage channels and their order,
- Choose your favorite channels,
- Define a parental control.
All you have to do is use a simple voice command Alexa to start a chain. You just need, for example, to ask « Alexa, put France 2 " and your voice assistant will ask you if she should do this on Molotov or Fire TV.
From the home page, you can finally access the Channel Guide presenting a timeline programs.
What are the differences with Molotov or myCanal?
At first glance, the advantages of the service Live TV from Fire TV seem thin, especially in the face of 36 channels offered free of charge by Molotov.tv and the 70 supply chains Molotov More. However, if you have not subscribed to the service, you will benefit from a better picture quality than that offered by the free version.
For subscribers to myCanal, the interest also seems limited, except that the service unfortunately does not work usingAlexa, which pushes many Canal + customers to watch TNT channels with another service. Yes, when you've got a taste for voice control, it's hard to do without it!
Note, finally, that you will also find the replays on the application France.tv for Fire TV.
What devices are compatible?
A priori all! Indeed, on all the models tested by our editorial staff, the service was available. Note that, of course, the update is not necessarily available to everyone yet ... Be patient!
