April 2, 2014
Amazon announced its new Amazon Fire TV streaming video device today, and iHeartRadio will be available out of the box on the device. iHeartRadio was also one of the first apps available and optimized on Amazon's line of Kindle Fire tablets.
iHeartRadio's integration with Amazon Fire TV will provide consumers instant access from to more than 1,500 radio stations from across the country and hand-curated iHeartRadio digital-only stations, as well as the ability to create their own stations from a library of more than 450,000 artists and 18 million songs, all for free.
"iHeartRadio's launch onto Amazon Fire TV is another key step in our pledge to be everywhere listeners want us to be, whether they want to hear the music and radio stations they love in their living rooms or on the go," said Brian Lakamp, Clear Channel's President of Digital. "We're excited to continue our relationship with Amazon and be able to extend our reach to even more consumers through Fire TV's simple and affordable in-home platform."
"iHeartRadio is a customer favorite, letting users listen to popular live stations or create custom stations from the artists they love," said Mike George, VP of Amazon Appstore and Games. "We think it's a great addition to Amazon Fire TV, so customers can listen to their favorite music right in their living room, with no hassle."
