The new Amazon Fire TV news video app will bring some of the most recognized names in journalism to consumers.
It’s going to go live over the next few weeks for Fire TVs, with Fire tablets to gain support in the not-too-distant future.
Puneet Puri, Product Management, Fire TV, writes the following:
“Over the coming weeks, you will see the app appear on your Fire TV home screen simply titled ‘News.’ No download or subscription is required to enjoy this new feature; it’s a free experience supported by ads.
Getting started is easy. When you first open the app, you have the option to customize your experience. Simply select the news channels and content categories that you care about most. You can watch news clips and live feeds from popular news providers such as CBS News, Bloomberg, HuffPost, Yahoo, Reuters, Sports Illustrated, Entertainment Weekly and more.”
