“The response since we announced Sling TV at CES has been overwhelming, and we’re excited to officially launch the service on a great platform, like Amazon Fire TV,” said Sruta Vootukuru, director, business development and operations, Sling TV. “Fire TV customers now have access to live sports, lifestyle, family, and news channels—all for $20 per month.”

“Adding FOX Sports GO to Amazon Fire TV is a great next step in enhancing our distribution and connecting with more sports fans," said Clark Pierce, FOX Sports, Senior Vice President, Mobile and Advanced Platforms. "We're thrilled to make FOX Sports GO available on Amazon Fire TV and expand our roster of platforms."

“Working with many indie developers, we are always thinking about how we can expand the reach of their games,” said Harry Miller, Co-Founder at Devolver Digital. “Bringing our games to Amazon Fire TV was a no brainer, as it brings our much loved and unique indie games, to the large global audience that Amazon reaches.”

"Customers of all ages have loved playing Crossy Road on their mobile devices, but we wanted to allow them to play the game with a controller in the hand and take the fun to the biggest screen in their homes – the TV in their living room,” said Matt Hall from Crossy Road developer Hipster Whale. “Fire TV is a fantastic platform that was easy to develop for and allowed us to quickly achieve our goal of getting this game to the living room.”
