A “new” FOX News app has just been released for the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. While it may seem like a dedicated app on the surface, it’s actually just the video hub app Hotlist with all but FOX News stripped out. This became apparent when the app crashed and revealed its guts. Speaking of crashes, the app is quite buggy. I had to force stop the app several times while trying it out, which is not fun because it strangely takes 15 seconds just to launch. You’re much better off with the CBS or BBC news apps for your Fire TV news needs.
