I recently switched from a Roku to a Amazon Fire TV and I absolutely love it. The only thing missing is the Crunchyroll app. I'm wondering if there's anyone else in the same boat and if there's interest in getting Crunchyroll to port their app over.

Let me know what ya'll think!!!

Sorry but outside of the U,S, Amazon's equipment (ie: Kindle Fire etc are unsupported crap) so I can't see any reason to get interested if you don't live in the U.S,,

I don't have one and nearly nobody I know has one.There can only be good from making an app for it,but I don't really mind if they don't,especially considering location availability.

I sure would like to see the Crunchyroll app on Amazon Fire TV!
I also switched over from the Roku Box to the Fire TV, simply because I had a real old Roku Box that finally gave out, and since I have a lot of instant digital movies from Amazon, I decided to go for the Fire TV.
As there is no app for the Fire TV, I ended up canceling my Crunchyroll premium membership as I do not watch videos on my computer, and have been relying on Hulu for my anime, however if a Fire TV app makes an appearance I will restart my premium membership!

I have a Fire hdx tablet and a fire tv. I really think that crunchyroll should have an app for fire tv as it has in kindle fire. What I ended up doing was mirroring my tablet on the fire tv, but native app shouldn't be difficult because they have it on the kindle fire platform. Please crunchyroll! I think this makes sense to you also.

I don't know where you're getting your info from but you couldn't be more incorrect.

Fire TV and Fire TV Stick are available in US, Canada, UK, and Germany, with more countries to follow. I'm pretty sure that'll make up a huge proportion of Crunchyroll subscribers.

As it happens I have the Crunchroll Android app installed on my Fire TV and two Fire TV Sticks via sideload. It works OK, but there's a few niggly problems, like FF/RW only work when starting a program from the beginning (they just don't work at all if you resume)

These should be really simple for CR to fix, especially as they already have a Fire App. CR Team, Please just take a quick look at the app on Fire TV - you'll open yourselves up to a massive market.

Yah that would be awesome to have. We have a Ps3 and a fire TV stick so we watch crunchy roll on the ps3 but it would be nice to not have to switch systems just to watch crunchy roll especially since we watch Netflix, youtube, etc all on fire tv stick.

Fire TV (Not Kindle fire or Fire Phone) are way more popular today than they were when this was originally posted. And to be honest, when CR stopped supporting Smart TV's (which was a big mistake) they left a lot of users shut out. I have Google Chromecast and a Fire TV stick. The Fire TV stick is waaaaaaayyyyyy better than Chromecast, because with Chromecast you need a second device like a laptop or phone to run it. The Fire TV and Fire Stick come with remote control and work as standalone systems. There's really no excuse for CR to not get their app supported by Fire TV, particularly as I said when they suddenly decided to end support for smart TV's.

This is similar to the issue with the app having been marked incompatible with Amazon Fire Tablets for a year now.
I still had it installed on my Fire TV from before, the queue didn't work, but I didn't mind.
I recently bought a new Fire TV (the 4K model) and had to side-load the app.
The one currently available from the app store works.
It also doesn't have the crashing issue and the queue works on it too.
The downloaded file name had a "1.2" in it, but the app says it's version 0.9.7.

One bug still remains... after performing a seek (rewind/fast forward) it remembers the seek position.
If you try to seek again later it will go forward or backwards from the last seek position.
For example, if I need to reread a subtitle 5 minutes into the show and hit the 10 second back button...
Then at 15 minutes into the show hit the back button again, it will rewind 10 seconds from the 5 minute mark.

Still happy to have the app on my Fire TV!

I use Roku and Fire Tv but I'd still like to see it on the Fire Tv instead of having to turn on my PS4 for my anime fix
