The Univision app comes to Amazon Fire TV devices | Digital Trends Spanish
Having an Amazon media player means “connecting” a conventional television to multiple entertainment platforms, from Prime Video itself to Disney Plus. The options are not limited to streaming like these, and proof of this is that the app from Univision reaches Amazon Fire TV devices in the United States.
The application mainly includes the content of UniMás, Galavisión and of course, Univisión. To put it in other words, users can access news, sports and entertainment programming.
To have a closer reference, the contest Lo Nuestro 2021 Award can be followed through the app Univision on Fire TV teams. It is a ceremony that recognizes the best Latin musicians of the year and that will take place on February 18, 2021.
Regarding specific programs, clients have the possibility to enjoy the Univision Newscast, First impact, The fat and the skinny, Wake up America, Guadalupe’s rose and Falling in love. Sports lovers have an exclusive program of the League MX, UEFA and Champions League.
How to access Univision on Fire TV?
In addition to having an Amazon media player, users must log in with their cable service credentials to enjoy Univision content.
The reason is that the network dedicated to the Spanish-speaking population in the United States is available by cable and satellite in most of the country.
Now if the customers are out of the app from Univision and have an Alexa-compatible Fire TV, the only thing they have to say when pressing the button with the microphone icon on the remote is: “Alexa, open Univision.” With this, the platform interface will be immediately displayed.
Without Fire TV?
The good news is that Amazon’s player offering is diverse; the user could opt for a basic Fire TV Stick or a Fire TV Cube.
The first is ideal for those who do not have a large budget, but who still do not want to miss the opportunity to bring developments such as Netflix and Apple TV Plus, or digital services such as Spotify and YouTube, to their television.
Regarding the Fire TV Cube, it combines functionalities of the Fire TV and Amazon smart speakers, in addition to requiring a greater investment to have it in the living room of the house, although it is not high either.
What other possibilities do the Fire TV offer?
Although this type of player’s main function is to access different platforms of streaming, it is also a control center thanks to Alexa. That is, it can communicate with other smart home appliances, from doorbells to security cameras, to find out who is knocking on the door from the living room TV, for example.
It is also possible to ask Alexa to display all kinds of information, from the latest news to the weather report, equally, without getting off the couch.
