FandangoNow, Fandango’s transactional video-on-demand service, has launched on Amazon Fire TV devices and Fire TV Edition smart TVs.
“Fire TV was one of our most requested devices, and we are excited to be able to offer FandangoNow to Amazon customers,” said Cameron Douglas, head of FandangoNow, in a statement.
The move offers users of these devices the ability to watch content purchased or rented from FandangoNow’s online collection of more than 100,000 movies, catalog films and next-day TV shows. New this week on FandangoNow are the critically acclaimed Bombshell and Uncut Gems, both available for purchase, plus Rian Johnson’s Oscar-nominated whodunit Knives Out, newly available for rental.
FandangoNow offers the most comprehensive collection of 4K Ultra HD movies among on-demand video providers, according to the service, and FandangoNow’s 4K content can be streamed on one of Fire TV’s many 4K UHD streaming devices such as the Fire TV Stick 4K or Fire TV Cube. On average, more than 20% of FanangoNow’s movie rentals and sales come from 4K when made available in that format on the service, according to the company.
“At FandangoNow, we want to deliver the highest quality movies and TV shows to our customers on all their devices,” Douglas said in a statement.
In 2019, FandangoNow experienced double-digit growth in both sales and new users, according to the service.
FandangoNow is also available on Roku, smart TVs from LG, Samsung, Vizio and Xbox, as well as Facebook’s Portal TV and Oculus VR headsets, with a large assortment of 3D titles.
