Amazon Fire Stick

Amazon Fire Stick

I want to buy a Roku or Amazon Firestick for one of my TVs. 

 

Does Comcast support these devices?  I am interested in watching TV shows and movies via on Demand.

 

Will I have to contact Comcast to complete the set up?

To clarify - Amazon Firestick is supported by Comcast - just not currently for supported by Comcast for premium channels like Showtime and HBO


All - as an update, there is now support for HBO GO and Showtime Anytime on these devices. Thanks for your patience.

Comcast has nothing to do with these devices, other than providing your internet connection.

You plug them into your TV and set them up from there.

Thanks!  I just wanted to make sure Comcast didn't have a block or something odd going on before I purchased one/1
