Please someone tell me does the new kindle fire HD allow you to watch tv on demand - i.e. BBC iPlayer, ITV player and 4OD ?

Denis Powell says:
Only BBC iPlayer appears in the Appstore at present.

You cannot watch 4OD using the Fire HD. 4OD requires the latest flash player which is not available for the Fire HD. It is one of the reasons I have sent my Fire HD back.

There is a brilliant free android app called TVCatchup which I got for my Momo tablet from the Google Play store. I have no idea if it will run on the Fire or if it's available from the Amazon Appstore, but if you can, give it a try. So many TV channels to choose from for live streaming TV. Just watching Tora Tora and the quality on my 10" screen is fantastic!

Another vote for TVCatchup, it's brilliant.

I've yet to see a stable root method for this unit

Sideloaded = downloaded from another app store to another device (say a phone and/or a PC) and then copied across to the Kindle via cable.

You can install Dolphin from the goodereader.com appstore which you need to install on your Fire first.

Hi Mr RCA
Make sure your kindle is set to download and install external apps.
Go to the url above. Scroll down the page and find the download link, it's not the picture of the dolphin.
Find the new file using the file finding app mentioned above. Install and you're away. Do the same for flash player.

I'm new to this forum, can you or someone please hold my hand and send me a beginners guide to downloading apps on my Kindle Fire Hd. I'm particularly interested in all the tv programmes BBc, 4OD etc...the full gamut, please?
I've read all the above comments but none really help a simpleton like me whose a total technophobe!!

can you provide a link to the channel 4 od apk file as I am having problems finding it !

In reply to an earlier post on 28 Dec 2012 22:03:34 GMT
Denis Powell says:
I don't think there is a 4od apk file. I think you have to install Dolphin, Flash and then watch 4od via the website.
