Paramount Network app arrives on Amazon Fire TV devices

Paramount Network has just updated their app to now support Amazon Fire TV devices. If you’re not familiar with the channel, that’s because it used to be called Spike TV until it was rebrand at the start of the year. That rebranding came with a shift in programming towards a wider demographic than the old male-centric Spike channel. Most of the content in the new app requires activating the app with a cable provider to watch. You’ll find reality shows, such as Lip Sync Battle and Ink Masters, in the app, as well as new original shows, like Yellowstone and Waco.
