About the BAFTA View app for Amazon Fire TV Stick

  • In response to member feedback, we have developed an Amazon Fire TV Stick app to enable members to watch BAFTA View content easily on larger screens.  As with the BAFTA View web app, BAFTA View hosts content on BAFTA’s in-house player, Electron, and various third-party players facilitated by entrants or distributors.  This can result in different small differences in controls across each player.
