This should be supported rather than having Premium members perform workarounds. Beating Funimation to this would be a wise business decision. Hopefully there is some progress behind the scenes?

Given that CR recently updated the iOS app in a significant way (i.e., more than just bug fixes), I would hope the Android app is next. It shouldn't be too difficult at that time for them to make it compatible with the Fire TV and submit it to the Amazon app store.


As to Funimation beating CR to the punch, I don't know if CR has much to worry about there. At the moment, I can't think of a platform Funimation has beaten CR to.

Their iOS and Android apps, like most (perhaps all) of their apps were developed by a third party, which means any changes not covered by the original contract mean going "back to the well" again. Although it is shear speculation on my part, it may be that they are under some sort of revenue-sharing contract for those two Phunware-developed apps that might prevent them from going to another developer for those platforms until the contract expires.

fire tv stick support would be great, there is nothing containing the level of quality anime that crunchyroll provides.

really want to merge my amazon instant video and crunchyroll use into one device, so this would be like a holy grail to me.

I got an Amazon Fire TV around two weeks ago or so and was disappointed to see that there was no Crunchyroll app available for download, which is strange since it is available on the Kindle Fire tablet. O_o

Add me as another person for Fire TV support, too!

If you are willing to do a little work, you can get it there. It listed in the "working" section of apps that can be sideloaded onto the Fire TV:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2756608

They also provide a link to a site that allows you to download the APK from Google Play rather than from more dubious sources.

Definitely lame that there isn't a dedicated fire tv app! Shouldn't be that difficult seeing as the android app works if you sideload it, but a dedicated app would be much better.

CR hasn't updated the tablet version on Amazon for like 4 years, somehow I doubt they consider the Amazon offerings viable, evidence suggesting otherwise.

Lately I've been taking using my phone to keep in "sync": it automatically updates from the Play Store, and I use ES App Manager to backup and side-load that on both my tablet and TV, and at least I keep myself away from questionable apk repositories (which you definitely want avoid, especially considering this latest threat http://mashable.com/2015/11/06/android-malware-auto-rooting/#D0ZS8BboJGqf
