UKTV has become the ‘first’ UK broadcaster to bring voice-search functionality to Amazon Fire TV.

Viewer can now find shows by speaking into their Fire TV Stick with Alexa voice remote, or the new Amazon Fire TV.

The UKTV digital products team has worked with Amazon to integrate a feed of UKTV’s free catalogue of shows - which is updated every 24 hours - to ensure that images, episode titles and descriptions for shows are current.
