Amazon X-Ray Now Available For TV Shows On Kindle Fire


Amazon has expanded its impressive X-Ray feature to cover TV shows on its lineup of Kindle Fire tablets. Powered by Amazon’s IMDb service, X-Ray lets you find out more about the content you’re watching by providing you with all kinds of information at your fingertips.

X-Ray for movies first launched last September, but this is the first time it’ll be available for TV shows. It won’t be available for everything straight away, but you will see it in the following shows on Amazon Instant

  • Justified
  • Downton Abbey
  • The West Wing
  • Sons of Anarchy
  • Falling Skies
  • American Horror Story
  • Grey’s Anatomy
  • Doctor Who
  • The Walking Dead
  • Lost
  • Glee
  • Breaking Bad
  • Game of Thrones

When you’re watching one of these shows and you hit the pause button, X-Ray lets you access information about the actors in the show, including their biographies and details about other shows they’ve been in.

“X-Ray has been one of the most loved features on Kindle Fire HD since it launched last September,” said Peter Larsen, Vice President of Amazon’s Kindle division. “For people who are passionate about movies and TV, there is no better way to watch than on Kindle Fire HD, which combines an exceptional viewing experience with the unbelievable power of the over 100 million pieces of data in IMDb’s catalog.”

Expect X-Ray to be added to other shows in the coming weeks and months.
