All I’m gonna be doing is looking at our top 10 free apps. Now then, the first thing I’ll show you is how to find your apps here on the home screen, we can go down here to your apps and channels.

And it shows me that grid view for the apps. So that’s how I’m gonna be locating these. If you want to download apps, you’re gonna come to the Apps tab up here on the top. And you can scroll through these you’ll notice there is no search function here. But what you can do is hold down your voice search, search the Tubi TV app, so yeah you can search it that way.
Click in here and then you can download an app this way. The first one is YouTube. Now you might be saying hang on that’s obvious, of course, YouTube, right? This is obviously this is where you get me. So it’s the most important app on your TV.
Once you get in there, you can search for everything, just like you normally would on YouTube. Alright, so now if we go back to our apps, the next one is Express VPN, this one is not an app that you’re going to find any content on. But it’s gonna be very important if you use other apps to view content that depends on your location.
So for instance, I do have one paid app here called MLB.TV. So it can be very useful for privacy reasons and for reasons of other apps. Next up are a few really well-known ones’ Sony crackle and Pluto TV, numbers three and four. And so Pluto TV gives you over 100 channels that you can browse through, it’s got a lot of great shows and movies. This is where you’re gonna find a lot of kind of, I would call it B team content from Viacom channels.
It’s just ad-supported, much like Sony crackle. Next, up to one of my favorites, I found this one while I was searching around for fun stuff to watch. If you’re into NASA stuff, if you like space stuff, then come in here and you can watch NASA live, they’ve got the latest images and videos that they’ve uploaded. If this is the kind of content that you go for. This app is wonderful. Next up is another big surprise. I discovered this one when I was looking for apps for Apple TV. Luckily, it’s available on the Fire TV as well.

Viki is Asian TV that is subtitled by fans by you know mega fans, so they translate it and subtitle it and put it on here for you to watch. So if you’re looking for something, kind of off that beaten path, lookup, Viki. It’s delightful.
And so I can go in here and watch some awesome movies, frankly, they are really high-quality stuff. If you have a library card, this is a no-brainer free content just based on your library card. Next up Ted, you’re probably familiar with this. But you may not know that they have an app where they’ve gathered all of their content.
But once I get in there, it asks me to verify that with you know, log in using Facebook or something like that. But once you’re in you get a ton of PBS content, the reason it has you log in is that it’s going to base it on your local PBS station. And so if you have local stuff that you want to watch, it’s going to show up on this app. Similarly, when you go into PBS Kids, it’ll have you do the same activation.
Obviously, if you have kids, this is a must-have, my kids love “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood”, I can sing you all the songs all of them. Now, these are apps that are all available in the Amazon Fire TV app store. That’s one nice thing about the Amazon Fire TV is that you can sideload apps. But if you come in here and turn it on, then this means that you can now download apps from unknown sources.
And so if I go now and say, search for the downloader app, there are a few apps like this one like Downloader that will allow you to find apps that aren’t available on Amazon Fire’s store. And so you can get some things that are of questionable legality, like I said, and so we kind of steer away from showing you everything about that.
But one thing that it does, that’s really nice is gaming. We’ll be upvoting and hearting those comments that have great content ideas. And so if you’re interested in that, go check out that contest. There are lots of ways to enter to win that so thanks for watching guys. I will see you in the next review.
