Entire Stargate collection arrives on the Amazon Fire TV through a new Gate Cast app

A new Gate Cast app has arrived that lets Stargate Command members watch the entire Stargate collection on the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. The app is not a stand-alone app that is controlled by the Fire TV remote, like most apps. Instead, it’s a cast receiver that works in conjunction with the Stargate Command mobile app. You must use the mobile app to select what will be played on your Fire TV. A Stargate Command all-access pass costs a one-time payment of $20. It lets you stream all Stargate episodes and movies ever made through May 2018. That includes the shows Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis, Stargate Universe, and the new Stargate Origins series. It also includes access to the 3 Stargate movies and the Stargate interview series Dialing Home. The Gate Cast app is not currently compatible with the Fire TV 1 and Fire TV Stick 1.
