Secondly, beginning today, Fire TV Cube (Compatibility devices) owners in the UK can watch over-the-air TV, with the ability to leverage Alexa voice capabilities to tune to their favourite channels.

  • Customers can set up their over-the-air tuner in the Fire TV Settings menu under Equipment Control. In the Equipment Control menu, select “Manage Equipment”, followed by “Add Equipment” and “Live TV” and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the setup.

To tune to a channel using Alexa, say, “Alexa, tune to channel five on the TV.” Customers can also use the name of their favourite channels instead of their channel number.
