I can't speak to that, except to say it used to be.  I logged in myself, but I 
am not going to log out to find out.

All the best

Hi, the Netflix login screen is not accessible as I’ve recently purchased a 
Fire Cube which has the same software installed on it.

Hi John,

Yes, it does plug into HDMI and it does need power, but I plug it into 
a USB socket on my telly.

You can say Play XXX on Netflix and it will do it.

You can say play anything on anywhere and it should do it.

Some of the third party apps though, such as My5, All4 etc, are a bit 
patchy where accessibility is concerned.

All the best

Steve

Ok all you clever people.

I'm totally blind and I'm wondering how accessible the Amazon TV stick 
is with Alexa.
I get that I can use Alexa functions, but what can I do re: TV 
channels, programme guides, Net flicks, recording programs etc?
The other question is: Does the fire stick just plug directly into an 
HDMI socket of my TV and does it need external power?

Any help would be very welcome!

Talk soon, John
