Netflix hits Amazon Appstore in UK, available for Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD

Netflix has released a UK version of its application for its TV and movie-streaming service for Amazon Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD tablets.

Now that the Amazon tablets are on general release, the firm has added the Netflix app to the Amazon Appstore and promises that it offers the complete video streaming service.

"Today, we are very excited to announce that the Netflix app is available in the Amazon Appstore in the UK," said Roma De, director of product development. "Many of you have asked us if Netflix on the Kindle has all the Netflix titles. Yes it does!

"Everything that is available on Netflix UK is also available via the Netflix app in the Amazon UK Appstore. Download the Netflix app on your new Kindle Fire and enjoy all the great films and TV programmes."

Netflix's biggest rival in the UK, Lovefilm, is an Amazon company and is fully integrated within the operating systems of the Kindle Fire and Fire HD. However, Netflix now boasts more than a million customers in Great Britain and Northern Ireland, so the choice will be welcomed by Kindle tablet owners with subscriptions.
