Weirdly, this did not work for me on my FireStick 4K Max. The voice 
command resulted in it trying to install the "MyTV" app (yes, that is 
typed correctly). So I tried searching and nothing starting with "myth" 
appeared in the list. I also checked to make sure my device's firmware 
was up to date, and it was.

So, this morning I figured I'd try again before writing this reply. And 
it was there. It installed and runs great. I guess my point is: if 
people are having trouble finding the app, try rebooting or perhaps 
waiting a while longer. It seems the device can take a while to update 
its list of available plugins.
