Amazon has added single sign-on functionality across select Fire TV apps

Last September, Amazon had teased about single sign-on across apps when it launched the new 4K Fire TV. We had been wondering when the company was going to introduce the feature to the public and now it appears that they are finally making good on their promise.

If you have a login available from your cable TV provider that supports SSO authentication (like AT&T Uverse, Verizon FiOS, Dish and DirecTV), you can use your login credentials to sign in once and have access to the whole lot of TV network apps. This new SSO ability is expecting to be rolling out in the next feed hours, according to an Amazon spokesperson.

So far, here’s the list of apps that currently support this on FireTV: Freeform, Syfy, USA, Bravo, E!, Telemundo, CNNgo, A&E, History, Lifetime, Turner TCM, HGTV, Food Network, DIY, Travel Channel, Cooking Channel, AMC, BBC and Hallmark. TBS and TNT access should be coming in the next several weeks and months.
