    Fire TV is not supported yet.
    What TV Tuner are you using?

    If a silicondust tuner, use this plex channel for the time being:

    The Fire TV is not an android TV OS........ it is Fire TV OS!(nor is it android mobile OS)
    Android TV OS includes these devices only... Nvidia Shield, MiBox, ADT-1 and the Nexus Player.

    Your only option currently for Fire TV is stated in my earlier post.

    correct?

    Ok yes it appears that is a full Android TV OS after rooting. I can not say for sure how it will work out for you though.
    That said lets see if we can make this work for you.

    So even after rooting then installing Android TV OS on your Fire, there is still no category called "Program Guide"?

    Plex does not support rooted devices. If you are rooted, YMMV. Also, what app did you sideload? The app for Fire devices is different from what we have in our release announcement. We do not release the Fire TV version for sideloading. Unless you install from the Amazon app store, the app you have is probably incompatible and won't work properly.
