FandangoNow Launches on Amazon Fire TV Devices

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.

Fire TV Stick, Echo Dot Amazon Prime Day Best Sellers

As expected, worldwide sales of Amazon’s Fire TV Stick streaming media device and Echo Dot wireless smart speaker topped the e-commerce behemoth’s annual 36-hour Prime Day sales event that ended July 17 at 11;59 p.m. PT.

The company said more than 5 million Fire TV Sticks were sold, while Prime Day was the biggest sales event for the Echo product line.

The Toshiba 4K Ultra HD Fire TV Edition (50-inch) and Toshiba 4K Ultra HD Fire TV Edition (43-inch) emerged as Amazon’s best-selling TV deals in the company’s history – selling more than six times as many combined TVs compared to last year’s record-setting Fire TV Edition.

“Extending Prime Day to a day and a half this year allowed us to further reward members with … deals, access to exclusive new products and … experiences that highlight the many benefits of a Prime membership,” Jeff Wilke, CEO worldwide consumer, Amazon, said in a statement.

Prime members across 17 countries purchased more than 100 million products, with Whole Foods Market customers in the United States offered week-long savings.

Members purchased more than five million items in each of the following categories: toys, beauty products, PCs and computer accessories, apparel and kitchen products.
