Yesterday, NBC released their new app on the legacy Apple TV. Now, Variety is reporting that NBC’s next platform target will be the Amazon Fire TV and the Chromecast. The app will feature over 1,000 episodes of over 40 shows with the majority of them being available without the need to first authenticate the app through a traditional cable subscription provider. Shows like “Heroes Reborn,” “The Player,” “Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris” and “Chicago Med” are among some of the shows currently airing which are available without activation. No word on when the NBC app will arrive on Fire TV devices. With an ABC app already available and a Fox app on the way, a new NBC app means the only large US brodcaster missing from the Fire TV will be CBS.
