I cannot play CBS.com videos on the Firfox TV app through the Amazon Fire TV. Why?

Posted

I have the Firefox for TV app downloaded correctly and it functions in many ways. I can open up CBS.com but when I try to play a current free to view episode of any show I get an error message stating "This address wasn't understood : You might need to install other software to open this address" What other software would I need to install to open a full episode of a CBS.com show?

I do not want to subscribe to CBS All Access if I can watch the current episode on the Firefox for TV app just like I can on my Firefox PC browser.

error message on cbs.com

Unfortunately I don't currently how to fix this and I don't have a workaround at this time. I will create a issue for this on our bug tracker.

Cheers!
