Amazon Will Live Stream Local NBC & Telemundo Channels For Free on The Fire TV





Today Amazon announced a deal to stream 15 NBC and Telemundo local news channels for free on the Fire TV. With this deal, you will now be able to watch local news from many local NBC and Telemundo stations for free.

With this deal, Amazon will live stream these channels for free on the Fire TV: NBC New York News, NBC Los Angeles News, NBC Chicago News, NBC Philadelphia News, NBC Dallas News, NBC Washington, D.C. News, NBC Boston News, NBC Bay Area News, NBC South Florida News, NBC San Diego News and NBC Connecticut News. The four Telemundo FAST channels are Noticias Telemundo Noreste, Noticias Telemundo California, Noticias Telemundo Texas, and Noticias Telemundo Florida.

“We are excited to grow our existing partnership with Amazon, expanding the reach of our local news content to millions of people on Fire TV and Echo Show devices,” said Matt Schnaars, president, NBCUniversal Content Distribution. “News continues to be a top choice for viewers, and we are proud to reach new audiences with best-in-class journalism from our local stations.”

Earlier this month, Amazon announced the launch of Fire TV Channels, a free live TV hub that will work similar to Pluto TV and The Roku Channel by offering a huge number of free live channels.

Amazon already has free content on the Fire TV in the free content section at the top of the home screen. Starting this summer, this new Fire TV Channels destination will roll out to Fire TV devices putting content from over 400 content partners in a single place on the Fire TV home screen. The new Fire TV Channels area will replace the current free section on the Fire TV home screen but will add a ton more content.

No exact date has been announced for when Amazon will roll out Fire TV Channels other than sometime this summer.
