Today is a great day for you if you have always wished there was more free video content available to you. Amazon has introduced a new platform called Fire TV Channels, which will let Fire TV devices to access an increased amount of FAST (free, ad-supported TV) programming. Have a look at the information that follows.
Free Content is Being Added to Amazon’s Fire TV
A while ago, during the IAB NewFronts event, Amazon made the announcement that it will be launching Fire TV Channels. Now, the massive technology company has presented the product to the public in an official capacity. This week, users should start seeing the newly added free channels appear on the home screens of their Fire TV devices.
Users of Fire TV will not be required to pay any additional fees (or even sign up, for that matter) in order to access the FAST content that is hosted on the platform because Fire TV Channels will be free for everyone to use. The one and only catch is that there will be advertisements.
Fire TV Channels will not compete with or interfere with other streaming services now available, such as Netflix, Disney+ Hotstar, Amazon Prime Video, and others. Those will continue to be displayed on the platform. Your existing library will be augmented with additional free content drawn from a wider variety of subject areas as a result of the addition of the new channels.
These areas include travel, local and international news, sports, music, lifestyle, and entertainment. The National Hockey League (NHL), Xbox, TMZ, Condé Nast, and the Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA) are among the popular and expected suppliers.
Because Amazon has not yet divulged the locations that will be receiving the service, all we can do now is wait and see. More recent information will be presented to you as it becomes available. Keep an eye out!
