As we all know, we scroll around the screen with no idea of what to watch and when to watch. There’s good news from Amazon for all those indecisive folks. Amazon has now added ‘Now’ and channel guide on Fire TV. It has now become easier to watch Live TV from Amazon Channels.
Amazon channels subscription is given to prime members without any requirement of cable TV. They can access around 100 channels through Amazon prime membership and Amazon Fire stick account. You don’t need to download any app or you can cancel the subscription anytime. Most of the shows and movies available on Live TV platform can be watched on demand. There are some channels that provide you with access to watch live shows or sports through live streaming on supported devices.
On Now: If you are using a Fire TV at home and signed up for different services like Cinemax, HBO, Showtime and Starz, then you will now find a new option on the home page by the name of ‘On now’. Through this, you can see the programs that are available to live now. You only required Amazon Fire TV login for the live streaming.
On later: In addition to the above-mentioned point, you have the option to look into the future. If you want to know what’s coming up later today or in the coming days of the week, then with the help of the channel guide, you can check the entire schedule. To open guide, go to ‘Options’ button from the remote and check the channels information by pressing the ‘Guide’ button. Don’t forget to add the favorite channels to the screen. The benefit of adding the favorite channels is that these channels will be displayed on the home screen. Like for example, Showtime is showcasing Death becomes her and St. Elmo’s Fire this weekend. So, you can plan your weekend accordingly.
Just say Alexa watch HBO
If you are prepared with what to watch, then simply pick up the remote and speak the name of the channel to Alexa. You can use the echo device connected to Fire TV to watch live channel instantly.
Some voice commands you can try:
Alexa ‘Tune to HBO’.
Alexa ‘Watch HBO’.
Alexa ‘open Showtime’
Alexa ‘Open Cinemax’.
Alexa, ‘Watch Starz’
Alexa, ‘Open Channel guide’.
As always, you can command Alexa to open any particular show, movie, actor or genre. If you are searching for a content that is being aired right now, then it will get appeared under search results.
We want to mention here that this service as of now is available only on Amazon channels like Cinemax, Starz, Showtime and HBO and the company on Amazon Fire TV Support claims that it is adding more channels in near future. You can start with the free trial today and start watching live TV on Fire TV. If you are accessing the above-mentioned channels through another provider, then you won’t be able to enjoy such functionality. You will not find ‘On Now’ and ‘Channel guide’ on the Fire TV home screen. To learn more about this, you can go to Amazon online support.
