Amazon today announced that its Fire TV streaming set-top box will arrive in the U.K. and Germany on October 23.
The expansion follows the Fire TV’s U.S. launch earlier this year. Today’s announcement also follows the February debut of Amazon’s streaming video service in the U.K. and Germany. It’s not yet clear what, if any, content restrictions exist for the Fire TV in Europe.
Pre-order for the device starts now for £79 — approximately $130 USD. The Fire TV costs $99 in the U.S. (plus tax).
Reached by VentureBeat for comment, an Amazon spokesperson declined to discuss the company’s expansion plans going forward.
