You still can’t watch HBO Max or NBC Universal’s Peacock on Fire TV – but now you can stream tic-tac-to videos on your big screen TV via Amazon devices.
For any TickTock fan looking to watch top lip-syncing and dance videos on HDTV, the company has rolled out an app called “More on TickTock” on Fire TV. Launched on Thursday, the app marks the first time TickTock has been officially available on a connected-TV device.
The launch comes on Fire TV as the Chinese-owned app is under threat of sanctions from the Trump administration if it is not sold to Microsoft by September 15.
As first reported by Business Insider, “More on TickTock” is available to Fire TV users in the United States, providing playlists and collections of popular short-form videos attached by TickTock. The channel includes “This is Tiktok”, highlighting Tiktok star interviews and other producers in “Studio”.
Read the app’s description on Fire TV. “More on TickTock” TickTock’s original, fun and daring world – the top destination for short-form mobile videos – directly in your living room. The app is free to download and currently does not carry any ads.
Unfortunately Fire TV will want the TickTock app No. Let users watch the live-streaming virtual concert with The Weekend, who will be performing songs at a special add-on reality event on his hit album “After Hours”. It will premiere exclusively on the Tiktok mobile app on Friday, August 7, at 8:30 p.m. ET / 5:30 PM PT, with recurring display schedule. According to a TickTock representative, down the street, such national live streaming special events may be available on Fire TV.
Nick Tran, head of global marketing at TickTock, said in a statement, “People are looking for the community right now, and TickTock users are engaging with content and resonating with them that resonates and makes sense to them.” “We thought about what streaming devices like the Fire TV meant for recipients to connect with our users and how we could give them a more dynamic experience, and we thought it was a natural next step to bring some of our content to the TV. “
Separately, in the meantime, it’s worth noting that before the tech giant backtracked and Amazon last month issued an email instructing employees not to use TickTock on their company smartphones due to potential “security risks” – the error email was issued.
