I was hoping to load the Optimum app on my Fire TV, to see if I could watch TV from it. I tried installing the version from Google Play, but it launched in portrait mode, then said "this display is not supported" and exited.

I was thinking the Kindle Tablet Edition of the app might work, but I can't find the apk.

Has anyone gotten this to install successfully? If not, would anyone be able to help me fine the Kindle Tablet Edition of the app and I'll try myself?

Thanks!

You can get Optimium 4.1 on aptoide and it is in landscape, but since the Fire TV uses HDMI it considers it an external display and Optimum does not support external displayes. So it does not work, and if you look at the list of apps that do work and do not work on the Fire TV, Optimum is on the list of apps that do not work on the Fire TV.

Had to write another post, cause I do not wanna be stuck on 666 post. Optimum does not work on any device that uses an external dissplay, including the laptop version. Kinda sucks, but a lot of apps are still like that. I remember for the longest time Crackle and Netflix would not let you use an external display, and I think the other companies that still restrict you from using external displays will never change their policy, cause if they haven't done it yet they probably never will. The companies that still block external displays are almost always media streaming companies, cause they wanna lock their stuff down, cause they are afraid you will share it with another person, which keeps them from getting tat persons money too. If someone elses eyes are on what your eyes are on, its bad for their business.

I can verify that it works great on the newest Amazon Firestick!!! Starts off in portrait, but when you click on a show to watch, it automatically converts to landscape. You do need a bluetooth keyboard with a mouse pad to move the little circle and to choose what you want. You can actually move the mouse to the right side of the screen and click on "quick guide" and you can see what's on and double click what you want to watch. It's not perfect. The quality is a little below what you would normally get with a cable box, but it works. It also pauses for about 13 seconds in the beginning, but then works great. After about an hr, a pop up comes up asking if you are still there. You just need to click on yes with your wireless mouse pad and the video will continue.

Hope this helps.
