How to add over 100 Live Channels for Free to the Fire TV’s Channel Guide and ‘Live’ tab

The Fire TV’s “Live Experience,” as Amazon calls it, consists of a built-in channel guide that displays each channel in a traditional scrollable grid layout and the ‘Live’ tab, where content that is airing now is grouped together by various genres (e.g., News, Sports, etc..) and service. Even though more and more apps have added support for this interface over the years, I suspect that most Fire TV owners ignore it entirely. When you don’t know what to watch and/or are sick of endlessly scrolling through the same old apps, it’s sometimes nice to just channel surf through live content or just put a never-ending channel on in the background, like the good old days. Here are instructions for how to quickly add over 100 live channels, completely for free, to the Fire TV’s channel guide and live experience. Read more ›
