Amazon Fire TV availability

What is the latest on Amazon Fire devices getting the Spectrum TV app? It seems this has been a request for a number of years. I have been patiently waiting and when I request information all I get is that it is to be supported "soon" . Is there any official information on this?

    The Spectrum TV App is currently available for Kindle and Roku.  There is currently no additional information available regarding plans to expand to Amazon Fire.

    How do you make a request for support on FireTV and other Android platforms, not just ROKU?  This seems unfair and an easy port since it's avaliable on the Kindle already.

    It is simply not acceptable to not have this softaware avialalbe on more platforms.

    Not necessarily absurd, since Spectrum doesn't usually write the apps for various cable device platforms.  it might even be a very logical contract restriction placed by one of the other competing platforms that is presently offered.  But Spectrum hasn't even told their employees of the reason, and until they do we customers are NEVER going to know why!

    I know there has been numerous comments on this, but none as of recent. Is there any movement by either Spectrum or Amazon on this? Or any info (that is useful) that can berelayed to the customer about the Spectrum TV app being added to the Amazon Fire Stick/TV/Cube etc......?

    With the exception of the identified moderators, everyone here on the forums is a Spectrum customer.  As a result, we don't hear anything that anyone could relay to customers.  We all get to wait until Spectrum officially announces it.

    When is an app going to be available for Amazon Fire TV Cubet and like devices? A previous request was made by another customer and it was maked solved but there is still nothing available; therefore, it does not seem right to mark it as solved. see original as follows:

    I'm sure it was marked as solved because there is no information available. The official word right now is "Fire TV streaming devices are not supported."

     

    EDIT: Customer service is ALWAYS the last to know when something is being made available and the groups that would be in the know are not talking.
