Amazon is expanding its free, ad-supported streaming portal Fire TV Channels with additional content from various sports media partners, including Fox Sports.

In a blog post published on Monday, Amazon said the new streaming channels join already-available content feeds from the National Basketball Association (NBA), National Hockey League (NHL), NBC Sports and Major League Baseball (MLB), among others.

“We’re continuing to make Fire TV Channels the best option for you to follow and catch-up on your favorite teams, leagues, and players,” an Amazon spokesperson said in the blog post.

Starting this week, users of Amazon Fire TV devices will be able to access free, ad-supported streaming content from Fox Sports, Big Ten Conference, the Southeastern Conference (SEC) and the Big 12 Conference from within the Fire TV Channels portal. Additionally, shows from the Locked On Podcast Network will also be available to stream without charge.

Amazon Fire TV Users can launch the Fire TV Channels portal by saying “Play Fire TV Channels” into their Alexa-enabled remote or smart speaker device. The Fire TV Channels app is also available from the featured app row on Fire TV devices.
