The 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 October 1, 2016. (Note: These are streaming apps only. No games or weather apps included.)

#10 Fox News: http://amzn.to/2dQFiSr
A few honorable mentions are Plex, PBS, Tubi TV, and Pluto TV.
PBS and Plex both fell out of the top 10 likely because of the move to sports and news apps. It seems the NFL and the election are a big driver in what people are adding to their Fire TV.
Twitter is the new man on the block and is making a name for their new streaming service by taking over the #4 position from not even being available last month. News is also a big part of August and news apps almost across the board are moving up. CBS jumped from #4 to #2 and Fox News is once again back in the top 10.
Sports and news apps were the biggest movers up the top 10. News apps made the strong return in October because campaigning for the election is in full swing. It will be interesting to see if they can maintain top 10 positions once the election is over.
