Amazon Fire TV Logo

Amazon has tons of free apps available for Fire TV devices, but with so many to choose from, it can be difficult to find the best apps for news, music, movies, and more. Today, we’re sharing ten of the top free Fire TV apps, in no particular order.


Amazon’s own free streaming service is consistently adding new content and just announced the new content being added in September. Look for new releases, movie series, and classic favorites, all for free.

Sling TV

While Sling TV is known for being a paid live TV streaming app, the service also has a free section that offers news, event coverage, movies, kids shows, and TV episodes at no cost and with no subscription required.


Crackle has a library of blockbuster movies, hit TV shows, and exclusive originals. The lineup is always being updated and is always free. Be sure to check out Crackle’s original content, as well as its collection of classic TV shows and movies.

TuneIn Radio

Listen to over 100,000 radio stations, get the latest breaking news, and check out new podcasts with the free version of the TuneIn Radio app. This is a great option for keeping music playing in the background throughout the day, and for staying up to date on what’s happening with current events and weather around the country.


While Crunchyroll recently announced different membership tiers to watch content, the app still has a free tier that offers access to a large library of anime content. On the free tier, new content is added one week after it premieres live.


FilmRise has a massive library of titles available for free, spanning all genres. Better yet, if there’s one specific genre you’re interested in, FilmRise likely has a free app just for that content too. Look for FilmRise apps for True Crime, Horror, Classics, Sci-Fi, History, Family, Westerns, and more.
