Updated ABC and Freeform apps released for all Fire TV models

ABC originally released an app for the 1st-gen Fire TV over a year ago and never updated it to work with any other Fire TV devices. That has finally changed with an all new ABC app that works with all Fire TV and Fire TV Stick models. The new app is quite nice with, most importantly, a lot of free content that does not require activating the app through a cable provider. If you do have a participating cable subscription, you can use it to unlock all content. Unlike most apps from cable or broadcast networks, this new ABC app includes a live stream. Unfortunately, the live stream does require activating the app and it’s only available in select cities, which include Chicago, Fresno, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, Raleigh-Durham, and San Francisco. ABC has also released a new Freeform app, which was formerly known as ABC Family.

New BET app arrives on the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick

Similar to NBCUniversal, Viacom has been on a bit of a new app spree for the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick, with the latest arrival being a new BET app. As you’d expect, the layout and functionality of the app is identical to other Viacom apps like Comedy Central, which I reviewed in detail, and MTV. Unlike most apps released by media conglomerates, Viacom’s apps actually have quite a bit of free content, including full episodes, that you can watch without needing to activate the app with a cable provider. Other Viacom properties that we’ll hopefully see Fire TV apps for in the future include Spike TV, Logo TV, Nickelodeon, Nick Jr., CMT, and VH1.

NBCUniversal has rounded out their recent network app releases with the arrival of an E! Now app for the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. Much like their other apps, you’re going to need a cable subscription to really watch any content within this new E! Now app. Other NBCUniversal networks that have not had their apps ported to the Fire TV yet are Sprout, Oxygen, and Telemundo, so we may see those arrive in the future.
