Amazon Fire TV will be in new BMWs, so you can stream just like in a Tesla
Future BMW and Fiat Chrysler drivers may find themselves streaming Fleabag from their dashboard screens later this year.
Fiat Chrysler and BMW, both of which are no stranger to testing new tech, announced at CES on Monday that it will soon offer TV streaming from Amazon's Fire TV in some of its new vehicles. Which cars? The companies won't say just yet.
The streaming service will be available in some BMW and Chrysler cars as an entertainment option on dashboard screens already built into the car. No smartphone syncing or extra device sitting on the dashboard necessary.
It'll work similarly to Tesla vehicles that let users stream videos and shows on Netflix, Hulu, and YouTubeDisney+ is even coming to Tesla soon. Except in BMW and Chrysler cars this will be through Amazon's streaming platform that connects to Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, YouTube, Hulu, and other apps. Access to Alexa, the digital voice assistant, will also be available through the car TV portal.
