I do some interesting stuff for work that involves a lot of travel, and recently I invested in an Amazon Fire TV stick. The thing is great - plug it into an HDMI port on a tv in the hotel, plug in the power cord, connect to the wifi and I've got all the Netflix and Amazon Prime (not to mention Pandora, Spotify, Berlin philharmonic, etc) that I can handle. The only thing is, no Crunchyroll!! You guys have such a great selection of shows, and the quality is so good that it's always a shame to watch on a laptop when the possibility of streaming through a tv - especially using a device small and light enough to fit in my pocket - exists.

At home I watch streaming videos on a PS3, and the Netflix app on the Fire TV looks and functions exactly the same as the Playstation version. It is possible that you could adapt the PS3 app for use on the Amazon device without too much blood sweat and tears. I certainly hope so! And I hope it happens soon :D.
Thanks!

Dropping Smart TV support was messed up too. But at least get the app on FireTV to make up for it!!!!!!!

Love watching Crunchyroll on my PS3 and PS4, but I'd rather not turn on those big boxes just to stream video. Been holding off on getting a Fire TV until Crunchyroll is on it, as it's the only streaming service that I pay for that's not on the device. Make this happen guys!

If they make the app , I will come ... they have a new fire box that comes with a controller & upgraded processor (and memory I believe) . Another plus is an optical out port for 5.1 DD audio . Roku removed theirs so I won't get another one of them .
