Looks like Amazon are on a purge again and have removed the very popular firedl app from their store.
If you have it installed via your account then you should be ok but any new accounts from today are unable to install it as a new app.
It can still be done by other means such as the apk and then load it via downloader app.

Still won't stop people sideloading apks as you've mentioned mate could you put it as a sticky @benijofar so we don't get loads of threads created about it mate if possible

You can still use it.
All they have done is make it more difficult to install all the apps they don't want us to use.
Just turn the apk's into tiny urls and load up that way so takes a minute longer !

I've just bought a new one, my son's 1st gen broke, so I just got him a 2nd gen for £24.99

Like @benijofar has said, it's just a slightly longer process to install the apps, there will always be a way around it. Downloader still works and that's all I need to get my IPTV onto it for him.
are the 2nd gen ones the 8 gig, and alexa?

I see the 4k firestick is down to 39.99 from 49.99
Black Friday they were down to 34.99 so not the same saving but still decent, is it worth the extra 15.00 over the ones listed above... I think so for the higher spec
