MTV has brought their official app to to the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. The app is nearly identical to the Comedy Central app released last week, since both networks are owned by Viacom. There is some free content available in the MTV app, the majority is going to require you to activate the app through a cable provider. The app breaks down the content into MTV, MTV2, and MTV News sections. There is also a Favorites section where you can find shows you’ve marked as favorites and episodes you started but didn’t finish. Whether you activate or not, you’re going to be watching both pre-roll ads and intermittent ads within most videos. The app has the same sporadic episode availability as the Comedy Central app, so while some shows have entire seasons available to stream, others are limited to just a few episodes.
