Fire TV machines now have authorization to a number of live television offerings, and Amazon needs to be certain you know what is playing irrespective of what services you choose. The internet behemoth is launching out a devoted Live tab that displays whatever is playing all over a series of apps, regardless of the that fact that it is a free offering such as a cable substitute such as PlayStation Vue, Pluto TV, or an OTA (over the air) broadcast selected via a Fire TV Recast.
The section comprises rows that underline your latest channels as well as separate genres, comprising live sports and news. You can favorite any channels to be certain that they take priority in any specific row.
The new section will reach all Fire TV consumers in the US over the course of the coming various days. It is not a channel guide (there is already a comparable service for Amazon Prime Channels consumers), so it will not quite restore the browsing experience you may be accustomed to from traditional TV. On the other hand, that is not essentially an issue. It may do the trick if you are a cord-cutter who just cannot wait for an on-demand clip to binge watching.
On a related note, July means it is almost time for the huge Prime Day sale by Amazon, which it is extending to 2 Days this year. But, similar to Target, eBay is not happy to offer its rival all the limelight, and aims to be right there with its personal offers. eBay is operating its own Crash Sale this month, also known as the first half of Prime Day.
In fact, you may really be crossing your fingers that the servers by Amazon buckle below the Prime Day stress again. If the sale does make Amazon go offline for a period that will set off a bunch of “too-good-to-be-real” offers on eBay.
