    Thanks for all the work you been doing, not only it helped me decide but keep me informed without the need to search the net regarding media devices :).

    One question if I may, sorry if you posted somewhere but i cant find it. Will Fire Tv 2nd Gen work with the NowTV app on UK?

    Thanks and continue the wonderful work,
    Bruno Reis
