Amazon may not be building a $99 Kindle Fire, but it is rolling out its X-Ray for Movies feature it introduced six months ago on its Kindle Fire HD to now be able to offer the same service to its library of television shows.

The X-Ray for TV will allow Kindle Fire users to be able to access IMDb while they’re watching a TV show, giving them immediate access to everything the database has to offer to give them the information they might be looking for on that particular show or episode. The update will be available for “the most popular TV shows on Amazon,” which in layman’s terms means not every TV show will use Amazon’s X-Ray for TV.

The only other place you can experience Amazon’s X-Ray for TV feature is through the Amazon Instant Streaming app available on the Nintendo Wii U, which makes sense when you consider its Wii U GamePad already offers similar experiences for a number of its other streaming video applications.
