Fire TV adds more access to sports

Amazon has updated the Fire TV Channels feature of their platform's devices to include more sports.

This doesn't necessarily mean live sports, but it does include highlights, news, and even condensed games for fans of various sports and leagues.

Amazon Fire TV Blog says the feature has already rolled out:

We’ve added the NBA, Big Ten, SEC, Big 12, Fox Sports’ 24/7 linear channel, beIN SPORTS XTRA & video-on-demand, and the Locked On Podcast Network to our lineup of sports content available to all FTV customers in the US for free. These partners join Major League Baseball, the National Hockey League, NBC Sports, and many other high-profile sports content providers already streaming on Fire TV Channels.

For basketball fans, the content from the NBA includes daily highlights from every game and event, along with top plays. If you’re into college sports, the college conferences offer highlights, condensed games, news, and analysis from all of their member teams. Check out Fox Sports for their expert coverage of the biggest national stories in sports, and Locked On Podcast Network for hyper-local coverage of your favorite teams.

Fire TV Channels also introduced a new Favorites feature that makes finding and watching your favorite team’s content easier and faster. Now fans can select and follow their favorite teams in Fire TV Channels to instantly watch fresh feeds of their teams’ highlights, news, and analysis. You can also favorite Channels, like NHL or any of the other 400+ channels on Fire TV Channels, to quickly and easily get right into the shows and personalities you like best.

This is good news for sports fans who use the Fire TV platform. My Streaming Life doesn't use Fire TV a lot, but it's good to know these options are there when I do use that platform.
