Trending: Ex-Microsoft worker charged in alleged scheme to steal $10M in gift cards and use funds to buy a Tesla and lakefront home

AmazonFireTV_HomeScreen_FrontAmazon Fire TV is continuing to rapidly expand consumers’ selection for new games, channels and apps. Amazon said this morning that it has added more than 600 options to the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick in the last three months.

Some of the new titles include Popcornflix, Funny Or Die, Candy Crush Saga, and Fox News. Game options have also expanded due to the new GameFly game streaming service. At launch, Amazon Fire TV was touted as a low-powered game console. GameFly takes advantage of that by offering games on demand for a monthly subscription fee.

“Amazon Fire TV selection has grown 127% in just the last 6 months, and is continuing to accelerate,” Amazon Appstore vice president Steve Rabuchin said in a press release.

Amazon now has more than 1,600 different channels, apps and games on its streaming devices. Roku still has a greater selection, with more than 2,000 options, but many core channels can be found on both streaming devices.
