Fire TV adds Sling
February 12, 2015
Amazon has announced that Fire TV’s selection has been boosted by the availability of Sling TV for download as well as other popular services and games such as FOX Sports GO, TED, WSJ Live, Crossy Road, and Game of Thrones – A Telltale Games Series.
“The growth of apps and games available on Amazon Fire TV has been tremendous since launch—selection is up 5x since April, and many popular titles such as FOX Sports GO and Flappy Birds Family have launched exclusively on the Fire TV platform,” said Steve Rabuchin, Vice President Amazon Appstore. “We’re especially excited to be one of the first platforms to launch the Sling TV app—we think Fire TV and Fire TV Stick customers are going to love it.”
To celebrate the launch of Sling TV – a $20 per month, Internet-based television service delivering live sports and entertainment from channels like ESPN, TNT and TBS – customers who purchase 3 months of Sling TV can now get a Fire TV Stick for free or opt for $50 off a Fire TV (normally $99).
