VH1 app arrives on Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick devices

Viacom is continuing to slowly bring their networks to Amazon Fire TV devices, with a new VH1 app as the latest arrival. The app is similar to their previous apps and requires activation through a television service provider in order to watch all full-length content, but the app does have some completely free content for those who can’t activate the app.

Viacom started by releasing a Comedy Central app for the Fire TV and quickly moved on to releasing an MTV and BET app. After taking a break they recently released a Nicelodeon and Nick Jr. app. Spike TV, Logo TV, and CMT are the remaining Viacom properties that have Amazon apps which have not yet been released on the Fire TV, so we may see those arrive shortly.

PAC-MAN Kart Rally by Namco arrives on the Amazon Fire TV

The popular game PAC-MAN Kart Rally by Namco has just arrived on the Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, and Fire TV Edition television. This Mario Kart style racing game includes multiple characters from various video game franchises. It has pulled in over 5 million downloads on smart phones and tablets and I believe its arrival on the Fire TV line is the first time it’s being made on a TV platform. It currently costs $4.99, but I’d suggest holding off until September if you’re thinking of buying it because there’s a chance it will be Amazon Fire TV game of the month. If it does earn that accolade, it will be free next month. The game works with either a remote control or game controller.

Nick Jr. app by Nickelodeon arrives on the Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, and Fire TV Edition television

About a week after they released their Nick app, Nickelodeon has now released a Nick Jr. app for all Amazon Fire TVs, Fire TV Sticks, and Fire TV Edition televisions. This new Nick Jr. app is tailored for kids under 6 years old, while the Nick app is for older kids. As you’d expect, the two apps are very similar in their design and features, so take a look at my overview of the Nick app to get a feel for both apps. To access all of the content in either app you’ll need to activate the apps with a subscription television provider, but both apps do have a decent assortment of free ad-supported content that does not require activation to view. The free content does include full-length episodes of most of the shows available through these apps.
