Amazon announced today much more content coming to the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick, including popular channels like NBC and Fox Now. With today’s content update, users of Amazon’s media streaming devices will be getting much more value out of them.

The online retailer has also added a handful of new games and apps. These include Shovel Knight, Telltale’s hit adventure game Minecraft: Story Mode, Dark Echo, and Olli Olli 2. With the release of these games, Amazon has decided to slash the Fire TV Gaming Edition down to just $114.99, from its original price point of $139.99. The Fire TV Gaming Edition comes with a microSD card for additional storage, two games, and a gaming controller.

Today’s announcement reveals that Amazon has added over 1,000 new apps, channels, and games since September. New additions include NBC, NBC Sports, Watch HGTV, Watch Food Network, Watch Travel Channel, Fox Now, NPR One, GoPro, and many other channels and apps.

Amazon as of late has been under scrutiny for removing competitors’ streaming devices from its online store in order to bolster the attraction of the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick.

Both the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick are available on Amazon.

    Great article, Brad. For those who live outside US like me, you can access Netflix, Hulu and similar media stations on your Amazon Fire TV by using UnoTelly or similar tools.
