    Dispute between Amazon and Charter?

    Last night I was trying to watch the college football national championship on ESPN through my Amazon Fire TV Stick because of using my DVR for recording other things. When I tried to set up Watch ESPN I found out that Charter wasn't listed as an available cable system. I've also run into this problem with Watch TCM, and Charter hasn't been added as an available system in the 9 months it's been available. But I was able to watch it on my Roku box that I had connected to the same TV set.

    Is there some sort of dispute between Amazon and Charter that Charter customers aren't allowed access to channels like Watch ESPN and Watch TCM on Fire TV? Is this happening on any other cable channels with available apps on Fire TV? Does anyone have any ideas on why this is happening? Thanks!

    i really have no clue, i doubt there's a dispute between Charter and Amazon. just the compatiblity might be affected, maybe your fire isn't fully up to date or something like that, i don't know.

    I bought the Fire Stick new during the Christmas season in 2015 and I've updated it several times, not counting the times it should have updated automatically. Since Watch TCM was added in April 2016 Charter hasn't been added as an available cable system. Since I ran into the same problem with Watch ESPN that is what makes me wonder if there is a dispute, or at least no agreement, between Charter and Amazon. I can get them both on my Android phones and Windows 10 laptop, and Charter is listed. I can also get Watch ESPN on Roku, but not Watch TCM. TCM's activation page has Roku listed as coming soon, but it has been that way since April, and I get the impression they're in no big rush to make it available.

    I found a work around to get Watch TCM through Playon, which uses a PC for a media server, and sends the available channels through Roku and the Fire Stick, so that's working for me for now.
