Amazon has added several new FOX channels to the News app on Fire TV devices. You can now add FOX News, FOX Sports, FOX Business, FOX SOUL, and FOX’s LiveNOW channels to your selection of news sources within the app. This is the first time that FOX has made an arrangement like this to bring all of its news apps to a single platform. The FOX News, Business, and Sports channel integration is just for short on-demand segments that can be watched and does not provide access to the live feeds of those channels. The LiveNOW and FOX SOUL channels, however, do offer a live feed. According to FOX, LiveNOW is a general news service covering all news across the country, while FOX SOUL is a news platform focused on the black community. The addition of these FOX channels to the News app on Fire TVs comes a month after FOX debuted its new FOX Weather channel in the News app.
Interestingly, these don’t seem to show up – along with the Fox Weather channel- on any of my devices. But I do see them on my Tubi TV Live TV channel selection. No Fox Weather at all anywhere. Very Weird. I live in the DC metro area.
Where is this News app?
It was available on my firetvstick 2nd gen but after an update it disappeared. It is not available on my firetvstick 4k, lite and 4k max.
Also cannot find it in the amazon app store.
It should be pre-installed on all Fire TV devices in the US. You won’t find it in the appstore. Are you using a VPN or have you set your Amazon account region to something other than the US? You could try saying “Open News” into your remote’s microphone.
I am not in the US and don’t use a vpn so maybe that is the reason news has disappeared.
