Starz app comes to Amazon Fire TV

But the HBO competitor's app is still not Comcast-compatible.

HBO rival Starz has launched its streaming app on the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV stick, but if you're a Comcast subscriber, you're still out of luck.

Amazon users can sign up for a $8.99 Starz subscription directly from or through the Amazon Appstore.

The Starz app consolidates the existing Starz Play, Encore Play and MoviePlex into a single application.

The app is also available on Xbox One, Apple TV (4th generation and newer), iPhones and iPads running iOS 8.0 or higher, Roku, Sony Android TV, as well as most Android phones, tablets and TV devices.

Ever since the Starz app appeared on other platforms, Comcast subscribers have been unable to authenticate it and this reportedly remains unchanged with the Fire TV version. However the Starz Play app will apparently continue to work.

Does the Mac still matter? Apple execs tell why the MacBook Pro was over four years in the making, and why we should care.
