BBC BASIC on Amazon Fire TV Stick

Post by Richard Russell » Sun Apr 16, 2017 9:32 am

The latest device on which I've successfully run BBC BASIC is the Amazon Fire TV Stick (the new version with Alexa voice control, but I believe it runs on the earlier version too). This is basically the standard Android edition of BBC BASIC, slightly modified so that it can accept input from the Fire TV remote control; it needs to be sideloaded onto the device using a file manager such as ES File Explorer. Here's a short video showing it running:
