I cannot play CBS.com videos on the Firfox TV app through the Amazon Fire TV. Why?
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.
Additional System Details
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:57.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/57.0
I can reproduce your "This address wasn't understood : You might need to install other software to open this address"
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.

Thank you for looking into this issue for me. I will continue to HDMI my lap to to the tv for CBS shows I miss or lose until someone finds a solution.
p.s. I filed issue https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/firefox-tv/issues/314 for this
