Amazon is bringing new features to its smart TV box. You can now use an Amazon Fire TV to stream music to your TV. The feature will let you access any MP3 songs or albums you’ve purchased from Amazon as well as Amazon AutoRip content (which provides you with an MP3 version of physical albums you purchase from Amazon.
But as of June 30th, you still can’t yet stream free(ish) tunes from Amazon Prime Music.
Prime Music launched in mid-June, offering members of the Amazon Prime subscription service the ability to stream over a million songs at no additional cost. That means for $99 per year (in the US), you get access to a large library of music, TV shows, movies and eBooks as well as free 2-day shipping on millions of items.
You can stream Prime Music to phones, tablets, and web browsers… but not yet to the Fire TV, Amazon’s set-top-box which launched earlier this year. Still, with the addition of a Music tab to Fire TV user interface, it seems likely that Prime Music will make its way to the Fire TV… eventually.
