Original story (published on June 4, 2021) follows:

TNT is a hub for many shows and exciting thrillers and is easily available on many media streaming devices.

Being a widely used streaming device, Amazon Fire TV Stick also supports the TNT app and opens up a pool of shows and sports telecasts for the viewers.


But the TNT app on Amazon Fire TV Stick has found itself surrounded by a boatload of reports about it crashing and not opening recently.

Reports in good numbers have started to flow in the past couple of hours that suggests users are finding a hard time opening the app on Fire TV Stick.

Here is what users are facing and is slowly picking up the heat to affect more users.

My TNT app not working I can’t take this! Lebron attack the FUCKING rim!

Shoutout the TNT app for not working on a night with 2 NBA Game 6s…

TNT app not working on fire stick 😢 I don’t wanna keep watching the games on the ‘puter

This becomes more annoying when there are 2 NBA matches and the app stops working just before the matches are about to begin.

The issue is primarily causing trouble to folks who are trying to access the app on Amazon Fire TV Stick but at this moment, the possibility of it affecting other platforms can not be ruled out.

This issue has spread enough to reach Amazon Help but the support has nothing to offer just that they would like to take a ‘close’ look at it. Here’s what the support says.

We appreciate the additional details. We’d like to take a closer look at this with you. Since we don’t have account access via social media outlets, please connect with us here:


Well, by the time Amazon fixes it, playoffs will be over and nobody wishes to watch such exciting games as highlights.

It’d be better if Amazon addresses it at the earliest but in the meantime, we would suggest going for an alternative app or cast your phone to TV and stream shows/matches on mobile instead of accessing the app on the Fire TV Stick.


That said, we will continue to keep an eye on this and update here as soon as we have an update.
