If you think you have so much to watch on your Fire TV, things are about to get even better. Amazon has just announced that it is adding 200 new Amazon Fire TV free channels to all its devices.
The new channels will be available in all devices that have received the new Fire TV interface.
What You Need to Know About These Free Channels
It’s not the first time Amazon is adding free channels to its streaming devices. In December last year, the company added a very popular news app that allows users to stream local news from all major US cities for free.
It is clear that the e-commerce giant is pursuing this strategy in an effort to dominate the streaming industry. The new Amazon Fire TV free channels are expected to integrate free content from a lot of sources including Pluto TV, IMDd TV, Tubi, Redbull TV, and many others.
Live streams from Twitch will also be available. However, you will need to have all these apps installed on your Firestick to enjoy these free channels.
We are also hearing that Plex will be integrated as part of this free channel bundle. Just last year, the app added a live TV section that offers up to 80 free channels. Amazon is hoping to bring all these live streams into its Firestick devices.
By the time this rollout is done, there could be well over 400 live channels from 20 different sources available for Firestick TV users. Over half of these channels will either be completely free or ad-supported.
How to Access Free Amazon Fire TV Channels
If your Amazon Firestick already has the new user interface, accessing the Amazon Fire TV free channels is super easy.
Just follow the following steps:
1. Hover your remote to the main menu and locate the “Live” option.

What Does This Mean for the Future of Entertainment?
Many industry experts have for a very long time believed that the cable industry as we know it is dying. There is just an increasing number of cord-cutters and it’s not hard to see why.
The great thing about streaming is not just the diversity of entertainment and the ability to get content on demand. But also it’s very affordable compared to cable. Even the Amazon Fire TV free channels that are coming to Fire TV devices could offer better entertainment options compared to cable.
Based on this, it is clear that the future of TV seems to be online. More and more people see streaming as a flexible and convenient way to stay entertained without dealing with hefty cable bills. As a result, the death of the cable industry could be coming sooner than we all expected.
The Amazon Fire TV free channels will be a huge plus for Firestick users out there and a game-changer for Amazon.
