Watch your favorite series and movies on the Amazon Echo Show 15 | Digital Trends Spanish

The Echo Show 15 is a device designed by Amazon to be the digital heart of your home. You can view your shared home calendar, as well as manage shopping and to-do lists or control your favorite compatible smart home devices, with Alexa widgets, on your customizable home screen. You can also use the device to leave notes for family members or call loved ones.


Even though the Echo Show 15 already does a lot, Amazon realized that customers use the device for video and entertainment, and they want to keep it that way. This is why the Fire TV experience is now available on the Echo Show 15. This new feature will allow you to watch your favorite content on your device. The truth is that the Echo Show 15 could already do incredible things before, and now on top of that you can access more than a million movies and TV series, all through Fire TV.

The Fire TV experience is available to Echo Show 15 users as a free software update, and will already be integrated into all new Echo Show 15 devices.

Start watching content in less than 15 minutes


If you already use the Echo Show 15, just download the latest software update. If this is your first time setting up your device, the option to install the Fire TV experience will appear during setup. Then just add your favorite streaming apps and sign in to your subscription to start enjoying your content.

Once the update is downloaded, you can access the Fire TV experience on Echo Show 15 simply by saying “Alexa, open Fire TV”, “Alexa, open Disney+”, or “Alexa, play The Rings of Power.” Amazon hopes that accessing content with your voice will make it easier to watch your favorite series while cooking dinner in the kitchen, or catch the news as you settle into your office in the morning.

Pair the Alexa Voice Remote (3rd Gen)

Now, in addition, the Alexa Voice Remote (3rd Gen) is the best way to find, play and control your content from Fire TV on the Echo Show 15. You can touch the home button on the remote to quickly access the experience on Fire TV, press the Live TV button, or even go directly to your content with one of the app buttons at the bottom of the remote. For a limited time, control will be available to Echo Show 15 customers for $9.99 (65% discount) when you buy the Echo Show 15.

If you’d rather use the experience without the Alexa Voice Remote (3rd Gen), Amazon has developed a virtual remote for the Fire TV on the Echo Show 15. The virtual remote will appear on the screen so you can navigate and control video apps. that are not enabled for touch use. You can also use the Amazon Fire TV app on your mobile phone to get the Fire TV experience.
