ITV Player has come to the Amazon Fire TV.

It works on the existing Amazon Fire TV and the new model which goes on sale on Monday.

It will come to the Amazon Fire TV Stick later this month.

"The launch of ITV Player on Fire TV is great news for our customers," said Jorrit Van der Meulen, vice president of Amazon Devices EU. "ITV Player adds to the growing number of third-party apps available for Fire TV and offers our customers easy access to sports, documentaries, news and soaps from ITV's world-class catalogue.

"We're delighted to welcome ITV Player to the Fire TV platform and look forward to adding even more partners in the coming weeks and months."

ITV Player was a glaring omission from Amazon's streaming box, so many will welcome the move.

However, ITV Player will soon be replaced by a new service called The ITV Hub. The app will be updated when The ITV Hub goes live later this year.

The Fire TV has over 3,000 channels, apps and games available. These include: Netflix, Amazon Video, Prime Video, BBC iPlayer, Demand 5, Curzon Home Cinema, Sky News, Spotify, Ministry of Sound Radio, Prime Music, Vevo, Plex, MUBI and YouTube.
