Has anyone been able to load the Optus Sports app onto the Amazon Firestick? Or is it just available for for Fire TV?
This link suggests that it is avaialble on Firestick but I am unable to locate the app. http://www.optus.com.au/shop/support/answer/optus-sport-how-to-watch?requestType=NormalRequest&id=70...
@Jimyee, we've recently announced support for Amazon Fire TV devices. I'll try and locate more information, but I'm almost 100 percent confident that it encompasses the entire Amazon Fire TV product range.
That includes the 1080p Fire TV stick and 4k HDR Fire TV.
The Optus Sport app is now available on the Amazon App store
I've reached out to our TV & content team for a list of supported Amazon devices.
I'll send through an update in a tick 🙂
I did not go into the Amazon Store... Optus Sport found me...
I rebooted into my Firestick (HD via HDMI) front page... where Home, Your Videos, Movies, TV Shows, Apps and Settings are at the top...
Went to Apps and there it was... under the 'Featured' Sub Heading... clicked on it... it downloaded... installed and then I opened... used my log in details and I am already watching... just hope the Internet Speed can keep up now.
I've tried but no luck, I even reset factory settings but still no good. I have an older Firestick that was bought in the UK so maybe there are some geo restrictions? Even though I have set up a new Australian Amazon account.
Tried downloading on my laptop from the Amazon App Store but it says not compatible.
Think ill just go back to plugging my phone in the tv.
That is strange... my unit is also from the UK... so I am umsure if geo restrictioms are the problem.
Having said that... my stick was set up im the UK for an Australian Audience.
Can you not search for it under the Apps page ?
Do you have a laptop that you can plug into a big screen as that is another way I can connect too, via a HDMI box ?
My Firestick also has basic screen mirrroring... that is under the settings tab on the main page too... so that would be wireless connection potentially.
However it is called something else... go take a look and if you cant find it... I will check.
