How to Watch Local Channels on Firestick

Netflix, Hulu, and Prime Video are all great, but what if you just want to watch some old fashioned, live over-the-air local channels using your Amazon Fire TV? Use these solutions to get started enjoying those local channels.

Option 1 – Live Streaming Services

Many of the services that offer streaming and live cable TV also offer local channels. These services usually cost around $65 per month.

Option 2 – Network Apps

Many of the major TV networks offer their shows and local news via apps that are made for Firestick. New episodes are typically available to watch in these apps the day after they air on live TV. Other apps may offer you tokens you can use to watch a certain number of shows per week. If you just want to watch content from just a few networks, this is the best option.

Option 3 – LocalBTV

You won’t be able to watch the major local television networks with this option, but you will find many of the “B” local TV stations available to watch free on LocalBTV. Unfortunately, the service is only available in certain areas. The list of cities keeps growing though.

Hopefully you have found one of the solutions above helpful for watching the local channels from your Amazon Fire TV. Have a different solution? Feel free to share it in the comments section.
