When Amazon boasted about the Fire TV’s app selection this morning, they said that “Popular new titles include Popcornflix, Funny Or Die, Candy Crush Saga, and Fox News.” Candy Crush Saga stands out in that list because it is not yet available for Fire TV devices. This isn’t the first time Amazon mentioned an unreleased app as if it were already available. A couple months before the Fox Sports app arrived on the Fire TV, Amazon featured it in a “what’s new” ad banner for the Fire TV. Given Amazon’s track record, it’s safe to assume Candy Crush Saga, one of the most popular mobile games of all time, will be making its TV debut on the Fire TV some time in the coming weeks.
The game is now available if you search for it on your Fire TV, even though Amazon’s website still shows the app as incompatible with the Fire TV.
