Amazon has added its X-Ray feature to both Fire TV and Fire TV Stick to provide owners quick on-screen information about movies and TV shows.

It appears that Amazon is very serious about walling off its garden. Late last year, it pushed out a firmware update for its Amazon Fire TV devices that not only made rooted devices unusable, but prevented Fire TV owners from rolling back firmware to previous, more root-friendly versions.
