Comcast has finally opened its door for Amazon’s streaming hardware, the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. The company said in a blog post that customers are now allowed to access their pervasive access apps— Showtime Anytime and HBO Go — on the Amazon Fire TV and Stick.

Few months ago, Comcast reached a similar agreement with Roku. It also allowed access to TV Everywhere apps for various other TV-connected platforms such as the Apple TV, Xbox One and Google Chromecast. The company supports majority of HBO and Showtime listings through its Video-on-demand platform, live streaming and Xfinity TV Go app. Many web browsers such as Android, iOS, and Amazon devices are currently supporting Comcast’s Xfinity TV Go app. Although company has not revealed any plan to provide Xfinity TV Go app’s access to TV-connected platforms.

In the latest blog post, it has also confirmed that it supports over 90 networks on 18 devices, it wrote, “We will continue to grow as new technologies and platforms emerge.” Matt Strauss, Comcast Cable’s EVP and GM, video services, also said in the post, “Our customers have access to one of the largest content libraries in the world and we’ll continue to make opportunities available for them to watch when and where they want,”

There is still no word on support for Sony’s Playstation 3 and 4, however, with today’s move we can expect Comcast to extend the services to the Playstation franchise as well.
