Discovery+ integrates 11 live channels into Fire TV’s channel guide

Discovery+ is now integrating 11 live linear channels into the Fire TV’s channel guide and Live tab, but there’s a catch. You can currently only get this integration if you subscribe to the service through the Discovery+ Prime Video Channel. Also, these live channels aren’t what you think they are, which is probably a live feed of their traditional cable channels. Instead, they are channels playing nothing but an individual show, or two, all day 24/7. Read more ›

Amazon’s News app now integrates 9 Channels into the Fire TV’s Live tab

Amazon has somewhat integrated its News for Fire TV app into the Fire TV’s Live Experience.

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.

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 ›
