Graham, No please let me off!  I may not be a good lawyer, but surely not
bad enough to be shot?

Best,
Richard

That's great Jackie.

Is BBC IPlayer also available? Does it have AD on the fire tablet?  Can
Youtube be used?  I know amazon and google were having a bit of a spat about
this.  Shooting all lawyers would probably solve that problem but that won't
happen any time soon!

Cheers

Graham

Following a QVC offer for this last week, I decided to dip my toe into the
world of Amazon Fire and buy the 10-inch tablet which also came with micro
SD card and vouchers for a case and music subscription for a couple of
months.

I managed to set it up myself which pleased me no end thanks to all the
helpful tips given in various threads on this list and from the Amazon help
pages.

While I haven't had much time to play with it extensively yet, I did
download and sign into the ITV Hub.  I was in Scotland last week for a few
days, and used the ITV Hub on iOS to catch up on the only two soaps I watch.
I still can't believe they haven't got AD going on it yet.  But the Amazon
Fire does indeed have Audio Description on the ITV Hub so this is great.

I have lots to learn and explore yet but it's a promising start.  Yes it's
an Amazon buyer's tool, but the sound is good and I may actually use it more
than I thought I would.

Kind regards,

Jackie Brown
