YouTube Red works on the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick


For those curious, YouTube Red, the ad-free subscription service from YouTube, does work with the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. You’re not going to get any of the added perks, like video downloads for offline viewing or background playback, like you’ll find on mobile phones and tablets, but YouTube Red subscribers who login on the Fire TV’s YouTube app will enjoy ad-free viewing as well as access to exclusive original content. After logging in you’ll find that the YouTube logo in the upper right will change to a YouTube Red logo, indicating you will no longer see any pre-roll advertisements when watching YouTube videos on Fire TV devices.

    Why would anyone subscribe to youtube red for $10 month when you can get netflix or amazon prime, what a joke

      With YouTube Red you also get Google Play Music, which is $10/month on its own. YouTube Red alone may not be worth it to most, but if you were considering subscribing to a music service anyway, it’s not a bad deal.

      Any idea how many more people watch YouTube than watch Amazon Prime?
