It is easy to use the Amazon News app on your Firestick device! Every Fire TV Stick streaming player has a built-in Amazon News app installed that you can use at any time. It is available for free to all Fire TV devices without the added monthly subscription cost. That means you don’t need to subscribe to Amazon News for you to access the local news. Just fire up the app or ask Alexa to do it, and you are all set to watch the current happening in your area.

When you first launch the Amazon News app, you can customize it based on where you want to watch the news. The app will detect your region so that it will know what news sources to offer you. You also have the option to choose if you want to stream the local news or the national channel. If you change your mind, you can easily edit your selection.

Note that the Amazon News app comes with advertisement interruptions given that it is for free.
