Amazon has continued to expand its Fire TV franchise, adding more than 600 channels, apps and games to the device in the past three months.
Although the content add has been relatively thin – it now gives users access to Popcornflix, Funny Or Die, Candy Crush Saga, and Fox News -- Amazon also made a deal for the GameFly streaming service, which is available exclusively for streaming media devices on Amazon Fire TV.
The GameFly service offers PC titles including Warner Brothers’ Batman series, Darksiders II, and Dirt 3. Game packs start at $6.99 a month and at launch customers can choose from six gaming packs. Customers can use the GameFly service with the Amazon Fire TV Game Controller, which is available for $39.99.
“Amazon Fire TV selection has grown 127% in just the last 6 months, and is continuing to accelerate,” said Steve Rabuchin, VP Amazon Appstore. “Customers now have access to even more of their favorite TV shows, news content, top quality games and live TV.”
