Full list of all Services, Apps, Channels, & Devices integrated into Fire TV’s Live Experience & Channel Guide (Updated)

The Amazon Fire TV’s Live Experience, which makes accessing live linear content easier through various interfaces including a Live Tab, traditional Program Guide, and Home screen rows, has continuously evolved over the years. It started with the first Fire TV Edition televisions as the way to access antenna channels through the TV’s built-in OTA tuner and then expanded to all Fire TV devices with the inclusion of Prime Video Channels, streaming services, and apps. Here’s the full list of streaming services, apps, channels, and devices that integrate into the Fire TV’s Live TV interfaces.

Note that only U.S. channels and services are listed.

Paid Streaming Services/Apps

These are paid services that provide cable-like packages of live channels that are streamed over the internet.

Free Streaming Services/Apps

These apps offer a variety of content that is organized into channels.

Prime Video Channels

Prime Video Channels are additional subscriptions added to your Prime membership. In addition to the live channels listed below, each subscription comes with a large selection of on-demand content.

Antenna Devices

The local Over-The-Air (OTA) channels picked up by an antenna connected to the built-in tuner in Fire TV Edition televisions and in the Fire TV Recast DVR are integrated into the Fire TV’s Live TV Experience and Channel Guide. There is no monthly subscription fee for either.

  • Amazon Fire TV Recast: Channels vary by those available in your location. The 2-tuner model with 500GB DVR is $229.99 and the 4-tuner model with 1TB DVR is $279.99.
  • Fire TV Edition televisions: Channels vary by those available in your location. Fire TV Edition Televisions start at $149.99.

    Any idea why Pluto only affords 52 – channels on the Live Experience / Channel Guide?

    • Ron says:

      Pluto doesn’t include any of the expensive sports channels. I tried 4-5 streaming packages and settled on Pluto and Locast.

    No support for HDHomeRun devices? That would make this truly awesome.

    Elias,

    AMC+ subscription service should be added to the PRIME VIDEO CHANNEL listings with LIVE TV channels.

    5 Channels for $8.99/month (AMC Plus, AMC, BBC America, IFC, Sundance TV)

    • Nice catch! Thanks for pointing it out. I’ve added it to the list.

      • JS says:

        Any idea or rumor if Discovery+ is going to integrate into Live TV once they launch live streaming of their channels (which they are adding to their classic Discovery+ platform by the end of this month)? This would make a great integration for Amazon Live and cord cutters.

        • oasis_001 says:

          It would be nice if they integrate LIVE TV feeds with Discovery+, but I think here in the US what we might get are curated Playlist/Channels of popular content, similar to what Peacock does with their service.

          Below is their description of the difference between Discovery GO app and Discovery+ streaming service. Sounds like they want to keep LIVE TV feeds tied to a cable subscription.

          GO vs discovery+
          Unlike the GO apps, discovery+ does not require a cable TV subscription. Once you sign up for discovery+, you can start streaming more than 55,000 episodes with your internet connection. Also, discovery+ is available ad-free.

          We will continue delivering high quality, world-class content to all of our customers. If you are a cable subscriber with access to Discovery networks, you will still have access to our live feeds and on-demand content through our GO apps.

    Has anyone with PHILO received an answer from Philo or Amazon as to why there is no audio with LIVE TV feeds when you have the pop up window in the upper right corner active?

    i have a fire stick that soplayer on now with new updates i can’t get in to watch tv does anybody have any ideas

  6. Charlie says:

    How do you get the free Sling channels added? Do you need an account?

  7. JS says:

    Sort of related—but how do you add Hulu Live channels to the Fire live channel guide? I know Sling (paid and free) integrates—doesn’t Hulu Live too?

    • Thomas Hoang says:

      I’d like to know this as well. Hulu Live TV doesn’t seem to be integrating into my Live Experience on my Fire Stick 4K. Maybe it only works once it updates to the new Fire TV interface?

      • JS says:

        Mine is a 4K stick too and I don’t see the integration either. I was wondering if I just wasn’t doing something right

  8. SA says:

    Is there actually a SlingTV for Free?

  9. Cordfree says:

    Elias, I got the zumo channels added over the weekend, and noticed news by fire tv in the setting sync sources. If you like on it, not avail. But seems to be another on the way. Another related note. As recast is the only ota avail. for this. Is there anything you can share on that, (within your rules) as atsc 3.0 becomes avail

  10. Stephen J Anderson says:

    1st thanks very much for this maintained article. I do not believe this information is available anywhere else not even on Amazon. For those that have the Firestick 4k is there any info on if we will get the updated look. I have a standard HD stick as well and the double left tap on the pad to get to the Live Guide shortcut is HUUGE! I hate that the guide is all the way at the bottom of the Live area.
