How to watch the Royal Wedding for Free on the Amazon Fire TV or Fire TV Stick

The royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will take place tomorrow, May 19th. While the wedding ceremony will start at 7 a.m. Eastern, most coverage will start hours earlier at around 4 a.m. Eastern. If you’re interested in watch, here’s how to do it live and for free on any Amazon Fire TV, Firestick, or Fire TV Edition television.

If you don’t currently pay for any kind of cable subscription service that’s fine. Several apps will be streaming coverage of the royal wedding for free without needing to be a subscriber of anything. The People TV app is one such app that will stream live and for free. Another option is to watch through YouTube where there will be numerous channels streaming the wedding, such as the Washington Post or the official Royal Family channel. Additional free options include CBS News or, if you prefer a british perspective, try the Sky News app.

If you are a cable subscriber and have the means to activate apps, you’ll have even more options to stream the royal wedding live. There will probably be no better coverage than in the BBC America where they will stream the exact coverage that most people in the UK will be watching, but again, you’ll need to activate the app with a TV service provider. Other apps that will stream the wedding but require activation are the NBC app and the FOX Now app.

    How has this bizarre medieval leftover of the dark and middle ages survived, and actually thrived all the way into the 21st century?

    Yeah, I get that the UK is now a modern representative democracy, but why then is this relic of human oppression maintained (at a not inconsiderable public expense) and even celebrated?

    Seriously, how is a figurative monarchy, complete with literal subjects instead of citizens any different than say, a figurative slave trade with figurative slave masters and figurative slaves? Or a figurative forced colonization of a land occupied by indigenous people. If we still have a Queen and princes, why don’t we still have a figurative Raj of India? If the obvious answer is than one is objectionable and the other is not, why is that? Both ostensibly ruled over subject people.

    The Queen by any and all reports, is actually a remarkably admirable lady that has done more than her duty to God, country, and the common good. The princes by all reports are decent men that have acted with good will and grace in the ridiculously fortuitous, and at times tragic circumstances they have been born into.

    But really, when you come down to what monarchy has truly meant to the dignity of mankind, why are we still maintaining, much less celebrating… this pantomime of tragedy of human history?

      Put simply, they’re our mascots.

      At one point we did get rid of Royalty, but we ended up bringing them back.

      The Wedding itself may actually be profitable, with £2bn+ being estimated from tourism.

      That said, I’m glad to be working today, things like Royal Weddings aren’t my thing, ended up spending the last one playing MGS2.

    I’d rather you told me how to avoid this pantomime. I used to be a Royalist, but this new generation are truly no better than the British version of the Kardashian’s. Better to spend my time rewatching The Crown, remembering the days when you used to actually look up to the Royal Family.

    Et tu, Elias?

      I try to write an article like this for all live events that are watched by millions, regardless of subject. It’s mostly for people searching for an answer than for the usual readers. If I could keep it off the front page but still make it easily findable, I would, but the big search engines penalize articles that don’t appear on the main page.

      • Chris says:

        That makes sense. I guess if one was going to watch this anyway, it might as well have been on a Fire TV.

    The royal family are not a”British version of the Kardashians.” It’s the other way around. The American idolization and fascination with Paris Hilton and the Kardashians demonstrate that many people, most with humdrum lives, WANT to vicariously watch rich, glamorous people who are famous only for being rich and glamorous. It seems to be a universal human desire, otherwise the U.S. woudn’t have created its own “monarchy.”

    Who are you guys kidding, we all watched it. CBS news is definitely one of the best apps around!

    Silk browser was also a great option.

  8. Mike says:

    Free is not good enough. As long as I am not getting paid to watch it, no way!
