Drawbacks of Mvix Amazon Fire TV app
As best I can tell, for digital signage there are two main drawbacks to the Mvix Amazon Fire TV app solution:
#1 Monthly fee
They charge a $30 per month fee per account. However, that does cover all the devices/displays that are in use (it is NOT a per unit fee).

#2 Performance or content limitations
I am also worried about the Amazon Fire TV version being underpowered or crippled for HD video. I was basing that on their “Andros” system, which I believe is similar to Fire TV on specs and may only supports menuboards and not HD video. Lastly, I have some concerns about remote maintenance/reliability of the Fire TV solution versus their dedicated hardware options.
More capable alternatives:
My preference is for their Mvix Xhibit Myrko system which has no monthly recurring fees and offers some fairly robust functionality.
