    Angry What's Going On With The BBC News App?

    My partner and I both have HD 7 4th generation tablets. On both I had installed when we got them several years ago now the BBC News App. In the last week or so, when we try to open the app on either device the message across the BBC News screen is that the service is not available, please try later. Then you click something like OK or cancel and it disappears completely. Anybody have an idea what is going on? Same thing on both devices. It looks like the BBC is in dispute with amazon and has suspended the availability of the App. Could this be true? or is it technical? Very strange as other BBC apps seem to work OK Very upsetting as this is one of our favourite apps. Appreciate any help, guidance comments! Thank you/

    Thank you. I tried to download from the BBC website but that sent me to Google Play which does not recognise the Fire and therefore will not download or install. I did look for it in the Fire App store but it seens to disappeared from there. Is this part of a dispute between Amazon and the BBC?

    I'm not sure if it's a dispute as such, or the BBC can't be bothered writing the app just orAmazon usage.Or if it's a delay or forever, Either way if you complain in to Amazon, they give you the email for the bbc saying " tell them"
