Re: Ignite TV App on Amazon Fire Tablet

Hello, @Mrbouzanne.

 

Thank you for your post, and welcome to Rogers Community Forums!

 

It can surely be beneficial if the Ignite TV app is accessible from many platforms; the Fire OS is currently not supported. You can check the app compatibility requirements on our support page. 

 

Thank you for your understanding!

 

Cheers,

RogersMoin

Re: Ignite TV App on Amazon Fire Tablet

@RogersMoin I'm pretty sure that the Rogers "Ignite TV Compatibility Requirements"  support page is out of date and was probably boilerplate taken from an old Comcast Xfinity TV support page.

 

https://www.rogers.com/customer/support/article/ignite-tv-compatibility-requirements says that Ignite TV supports "Android 4.1+ (including Kindle Tablets)", which suggests that the Ignite TV app should run on Fire OS.  However, the Ignite TV app page in the Google Play store says that version 6.1.1.001 requires "Android 5.0 and up".  We also don't have an app in the Amazon store so the only way to install Ignite TV on a Fire tablet is to side-load an APK obtained from a potentially untrustworthy source, something that Rogers would never endorse or support.
