When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Controlling Fire TV/Fire Stick (maybe UK specific)
« on: November 01, 2016, 12:45:17 pm »
I'm in the UK, I've bought a firestick (and later, a firestick + alexa remote).
I wanted to get Echo to control my TV and play my amazon videos and netflix.

* Can I launch Amazon Videos and Netflix via Echo?
* Will it work on a FireStick, or do I have to upgrade to Fire TV.
* Is this crippled only in the UK?

Documentation talk about FireOS 5.0+ but it appears to be wrong.

Help?

I have the same issue, was at least expecting Echo to control my Amazon TV devices but as you stare, this does not appear to be possible in the UK.

Pretty disappointing.
