The very popular racing game Riptide GP2 has just gone free to celebrate the game’s 4 year aniversary. This game is normally $1.99 and has a great 4.5 star rating from over 1,000 reviews.

Riptide GP: Renegade is normally $2.99 but is currently down to $0.99, which is the new lowest price it has ever been. Both of these games are compatible with all Fire TV devices except the 1st-gen Fire TV Stick. They are both playable with either a remote control or game controller.
If you’ve never purchased anything from QVC, you can currently buy the Fire TV Stick for $32.98 by entering promo code Five4U at checkout.

The game Cyboid has just gone on sale for $0.99. This is the first time this game has ever been offered at this low of a price.

It offers local multiplayer split-screen to go head-to-head against friends and family. The developer tells me this sale will last through the end of the month. Cyboid is compatible with all Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, and Fire TV Edition television models. It works with either a remote or game controller.
The game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic has just gone on sale for $2.29. This is the new lowest price that this game has ever been.

You will need a game controller to play the game, since it’s not compatible with the Fire TV remote.

It allows you to send video and mirror the screen from an iPhone, iPad, or Mac to your Fire TV device. This app has been around since 2014 and has been receiving constant updates to keep it compatible with the latest versions of iOS, which is the most important thing to look for in an AirPlay Receiver app. It’s compatible with all Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, and Fire TV Edition television models.

The Channels app by Fancy Bits has just been released for the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. This app allows you to view live TV through an HDHomeRun tuner. It features a program guide as well as a nice content view with cover art for shows and movies. The Channels app is known as the best way to watch HDHomeRun content on the Apple TV. The developer has recently released DVR software that runs on a PC or NAS to record content and make it available through the Channels app. The DVR service will cost $8 per month, but the Channels app is free for Fire TV devices. That’s particularly unusual considering the Apple TV version of the app costs a staggering $24.99.

The Jackbox Party Pack 3 has just gone on sale for the first time. It’s currently 50% off at $12.50.
