Fire TV 36The Fire TV library of apps has been quickly growing to offer a range of apps giving users access to a ton of 100 percent free content; however, many of the apps are not video apps, so it can be difficult to find good cord cutting apps.

So here are the top 10 free video Fire TV apps as of August 14th 2018. (Note: These are streaming apps only. No games, weather apps, etc included.)

#1 NBC:
#2 YouTube Player:
#3 Tubi:
#4 The CW:
#5 Facebook:
#6 Pluto TV:
#7 PBS Kids:
#8 PBS:
#9 Fox News:
#10 NBC News:

A few honorable mentions are ABC, CBS Sports, Plex, and Twitch.

Biggest Trends:

Recently news apps have slowly started to fall out of the top 10. Back during the last election, they dominated this list. Over the last year, they have slowly started to fall out of favor and are being replaced by services like Tubi and Facebook to name a few. It seems Americans are once again looking for entertainment rather than news on the Fire TV.
