“Customers are loving the selection on their Fire TV, telling us how easy it
is to watch their favorite movies and TV shows, listen to music, and play
games in their living room. And because of that, developers continue to bring
great apps to the platform, with app selection more than doubling since
launch,” said Steve Rabuchin, Vice President, Amazon Appstore. “And it’s still
day 1—we have a great pipeline of new services and games coming soon.”
