We’ve published the v1.4.27 update to the C Spire TV app for Amazon Fire TV to the Amazon Fire App Store. This app update includes various performance and stability improvements over the previous version. We recommend updating your app when prompted.
Amazon Fire TV App Update Notifications
Amazon has made some changes to the way they are handling app updates on the Amazon Fire TV platform. Previously, Amazon Fire TV would update apps in the background. However, we’ve encountered a new behavior where the platform is now prompting users to update as part of the app launch sequence.
So even if you have your apps set to update automatically, you will likely get a notification asking you to update your app.
The update takes just a few seconds and you will be up and running with a version that is more performant and stable!
