Amazon is adding to its Fire TV platform with the addition of the News app. The News app will bring content from a number of different reputable networks, including CBS, Sports Illustrated, Al Jazeera, and Bloomberg. Amazon's News app will feature a mix of live content and shows that can be viewed at any time.
Amazon's new app will be supported using revenue from ads, which follows the general direction the company is taking. Over time, Amazon has incorporated more ad revenue into its business model. In 2018 the company was recorded as being the third largest digital advertiser, behind Google and Facebook. Additionally, the new app will allow the company to compete with other organizations launching similar networks.
