Does anyone if Crunchyroll will be downloadable anytime in the future on Fire TV? I love Crunchyroll finished watching Kuroko Basketball on my laptop in 3 days lol a couple of days ago and would love to be able to see other shows on my TV.

It would probably be better to post this in one of the help forums (http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumcategory-391030/android), so I suspect this message might be moved.

They pulled the Kindle Fire tablet from the Amazon Marketplace about a month ago, and there's been no formal reason. The new version is buggy, but rather than fix it, they pulled it, and when someone mailed support about it, they claimed they never supported it.

Now, I know the tablet is different from the Fire TV, but it seems like their willingness to support the Amazon devices is a bit lacking. (I have both the Kindle HDX and Fire TV). If you're comfortable with sideloading the app on your Fire TV, it's possible, but you need to sideload one of the older versions. The 0.9.3 runs fine on the Fire TV, but the icon doesn't appear on the Home screen.

Crunchyroll apk, you'll need the older 0.9.3 version: http://crunchyroll.en.uptodown.com/android
