Ignite TV App on Amazon Fire Tablet

I can run ignite tv with no problem on my Samsung A5 phone. It also runs fine on my daughters ipad.

 

I can only view recorded shows on my Amazon fire tablet. On demand shows error out. When I try to ask for my channel guide I also error out.

 

I can try and figure out how to get screenshots of the errors if someone is willing to pursue this.

Thanks for the quick response and the info.

 

One final comment is to identify in the Ignite Tv app that it is not functional on the Amazon Fire tablet platform.

Re: Ignite TV App on Amazon Fire Tablet

Hello @john_odonnell_1,

 

We appreciate you joining us in the Rogers Community Forums and congrats on your first post! 👍

 

It's strange that the Ignite TV app is working fine on two of your devices but not on your Amazon tablet! How puzzling!!

 

Was it working previously or has it been this way from the start? Can you please attempt to uninstall and then reinstall the app on your tablet followed by a quick reboot of the device to see if this gets it working again? I would also ensure the tablet has the latest update installed as well.

 

Please do keep us in the loop! 🙂

 

Correction: My apologies, I skipped your mention of Amazon Fire tablet. Even though Fire OS built on Android OS, it's not supported. So the Ignite TV app on your Amazon Fire tablet may not be fully functional like on your other Android devices. Thank you for understanding!

Re: Ignite TV App on Amazon Fire Tablet

Is there any plan at Rogers to develop a Fire OS version of the app? I have since tried the app on Windows 10 and it works fine too. The app functionality is 5 stars!

 

Another question on IgniteTV. Is there any plan to add Disney+ app?

 

I'm a huge IgniteTV fan since I had it installed last month. I believe addressing the above 2 gaps identified above would be popular with all your Ignite Tv customers.I

 

Any input from other Community members?I

 

Thanks for the quick response Laura!

Greetings john_odonnell_1!

 

I have no plans to share with regards to a Fire OS version but we are always looking for opportunities to bring new features and apps to Ignite TV. At this time, Disney+ is not available on through Ignite TV.  

 

Regards,

RogersCorey

I never saw any indication anywhere that it ever was.  How did you get the Ignite TV app installed on your Fire tablet in the first place?  Did you find the APK hosted on an unofficial download site or did you sideload APKs to get access to the Google Play Store?

Re: Ignite TV App on Amazon Fire Tablet

I'm pretty sure I simply launched and used Google Play.

Re: Ignite TV App on Amazon Fire Tablet

Hi,
Is there a list of device requirements for the IgniteTV app? What version of Android is it compatible with?

As far as I know, the Ignite TV app only runs on mobile devices.  According to this post, the Ignite TV app requires Android 4.1 or higher.  However, according to the Ignite TV app page in the Google Play store, it requires Android 5.0 or higher.  I don't think that it has officially been certified to run on Fire OS and (as far as I can see) it is not available in the Amazon App Store.  It may take some time but  @RogersTony  is in the process of verifying the Ignite TV application's compatibility requirements and will revise the support page with updated information as it becomes available.
