In another sign that Amazon's Kindle is becoming an increasingly important platform for streaming TV programming, Univision Communications has launched its bilingual digital video network on Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD.

The UVideos app is now available in the Kindle store.

"Amazon's Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD tablets are very popular with consumers, and the launch of UVideos on these tablets allows access to the best in Spanish-language programming in the U.S.," said Kevin Conroy, president, Univision Interactive and Enterprise Development. "We are committed to making Univision's programming available wherever and whenever our current and new audiences are looking to enjoy it."

The free UVideos app, which is now available in the Kindle store, gives users access to thousands of hours of the best day time, primetime, entertainment, sports and news programming available.
