Amazon launched its Fire TV video streaming box in the U.K and Germany Wednesday, making the device available for pre-order through its website in both countries. Amazon has struck a number of partnerships to offer local content in both markets, with apps for the U.K.’s Sky News as well as Germany’s Spiegel TV as well as shows from broadcasters like ARD and ZDF. Notably absent in the U.K. is the BBC’s iPlayer. Netflix support hasn’t officially announced for Germany either, but will likely follow as soon as the service launches in the country later this month.
