Not to be outdone by the recently released CBS News app, the BBC has released a new BBC News app for US residents. Just like the CBS News app, this BBC News app is completely free and requires no cable subscription. However, that’s where the similarities end. This BBC News app for US Fire TV’s does not provide access to their live news broadcast like the UK version released last month. Instead , the app provides a “News in Video” playlist of recent news clips. There is also a menu of news categories like Health, Tech, Business, and Entertainment, however these categories bring up text articles with no accompanying videos.
