Amazon Video is, of course, available on Amazon Fire TV — but also on many more devices.
Back in the day, the battle lines were drawn. If you wanted to watch Amazon Video, you pretty much had to use an Amazon device like a Fire TV or Fire HD Tablet. That, to put it mildly, wasn't exactly ideal.
Today, things are different. Very different. Not perfect, but much better. When it comes to the devices on which you can watch Amazon Video — and along with it Amazon Prime Video, and Amazon Prime Video Channels — the sky's the limit. In fact, with very few exceptions, you're going to be hard-pressed to find a modern piece of technology that doesn't somehow have access to Amazon Prime Video.
From set-top boxes to televisions themselves, it's easier than ever to watch something on Amazon Video. Here's the shortlist:
- Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick (up to 4K resolution)
- Amazon Echo Show (SD quality)
- Amazon Fire tablets, including Kindle Fire
- Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch
- Apple TV
- Android phones and tablets
- PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4
- Xbox 360 and Xbox One
- Nintendo Wii
- Sony smart TVs (including sets with Android TV)
- Samsung smart TVs
- Panasonic smart TVs
- Vizio smart TVs (2013 and later)
- Hisense 2015 smart TV
- TPVision smart TV
- NVIDIA Shield TV
- Smart TVs with Fire TV OS
- Modern web browsers
Missing from that list, unfortunately, is Google's Chromecast. You can send video from an Android phone or tablet to a Fire TV device, however, which is better than nothing. (You also can use AirPlay to send Amazon Video to an Apple TV, but that's kind of redundant.)

Today — Monday, Jan. 20, 2020 — is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a holiday that commemorates the birthday of the famous Civil Rights Leader.
