Amazon is Adding a New Live TV Section to The Fire TV With Content From DIRECTV NOW, PlayStation Vue, & More

Today Amazon announced that they are adding a live TV section to the Fire TV home screen that will feature content from many popular live TV apps. This will let you see content from HBO and NBA League Pass right next to your live channels from services like Sling TV and PlayStation Vue.

“We have created a single destination on your Fire TV on the ‘Live’ tab, which brings together your live sports, news, and channels from select OTT services, streaming apps (e.g. PlayStation Vue), paid subscriptions, and over-the-air antennas into one consolidated view. You’ll find the new ‘Live’ tab right next to ‘Home’ in the main navigation menu, and this new experience is available across all Fire TV devices and Fire TV Edition smart TVs.” Amazon said in a statement on their site.

Here is a short video showing the new live tab.

Amazon says the new live tab will be available to all Fire TV customers in the United States over the next week. You can learn more about this new live section HERE.
