The Top 10 Free Fire TV Apps as of August 2016




Fire TV 36Fire TV Library of apps has been quickly growing to offer a wide range of apps giving users access to a ton of great 100% free content. Yet there is so many apps out there that it can be hard to find the best free content.

I could tell you my favorite free apps but maybe the best way to find the best free content is to look at what the top 10 most installed free app on Fire TV are.

So here are the top 10 free Fire TV apps as of August 1st 2016: (Note these are streaming apps only. No games or weather apps etc.)

#1 YouTube:
#2 DNC Convention:
#3 GOP Convention:
#4 CNNgo:
#5 CBS News:
#6 NBC News:
#5 Plex:
#8 Spotify Music:
#9 NBC:
#10 Fox News Channel:

A few honorable mentions are Popcorn Flix, PBS, WWSB TV, and Tubi TV.

Maybe it should not be a surprise that so many news channels jumped into the top ten in July. With both the RNC and DNC conventions being streamed for free on many news channels it makes since that they would see a big bump. Yet it is very interesting how different this list is from the top free channels on Roku. The Roku list had news channels in their top 10 it was far more dominated by free movie and show apps than the Fire TV list.
