Amazon has just posted the partial source code for a new 5.0.4 software update on their source code notice page. The update has been listed under both the 2nd-gen Fire TV and the Fire TV Stick. This often, but not always, indicates the update will begin rolling out to devices in the next few days. This software update may bring the full featured integration of Amazon’s new add-on TV subscription service to Fire TV devices, which we’re expecting to arrive soon. Although I was told, by my sources at Amazon, that those features would be in a 5.0.5 update. The date on the source code file seems to indicate this update was completed on November 24th, so time will tell what this update has in store. Be sure to leave a comment below if your device receives this update and let us know if you notice any changes.
