How To Watch Local News Channels On Firesticks For Free

The following tutorial will show you How to Get Local Channels on Firestick.

Cutting the cord just became a whole lot easier for Firestick and Fire TV Users.

The free Amazon News App is now supporting local channels in over 80 cities across America.

This includes live news from outlets such as ABC, NBC, CBSN, and more.

The latest update brings the total number of accompanied cities to 88.

Prior to this new listing, only 12 cities had access to Live Local News directly from the Firestick home-screen.

If you use an IPTV Service you are likely without any local options.

However, with local options now available in the News App, Firestick and Fire TV users will have full access to live news channels everywhere.

The Amazon News App is a fabulous way to stream local channels on your Firestick or Fire TV.

If you are in one of the following locations, you can easily access Local News directly from the Firestick home-screen.
