Do you own a Fire TV or Fire TV Stick from Amazon? They are great streaming players that let you access a ton of paid content like Paramount+, Hulu, Apple TV+, and more. But the Fire TV also has a ton of 100% free streaming services that every cord cutter should try.

Now you likely know of Amazon’s Freevee streaming service as its content is right on the home screen, but what about other great options to stream free movies and TV shows legally?

So today, I am breaking down my top 10 list of the free Fire TV apps and TV shows every cord cutter should have!

Now, this list is in no particular order, and picking just 10 was hard, but here is my top 10 list of my favorite in no particular order.
