Cloud-streaming game service launched on Amazon Fire TV

Amazon has declared its Fire TV service as boasting the fastest growing selection of any streaming media device — after the online retail giant added over 600 channels, apps and games to the service in three months.

In addition to popular new titles like Popcornflix, Funny Or Die, Candy Crush Saga, and Fox News, the GameFly streaming service is now available exclusively for streaming media devices on Amazon Fire TV.

Using the GameFly service – described in some quarters as the ‘gaming equivalent to Netflix’ – customers can play top quality PC titles, including Warner Brothers’ acclaimed Batman series, Darksiders II, and Dirt 3. Game packs start at $6.99 a month and at launch customers can choose from six gaming packs.

“The team is working hard and moving incredibly fast to bring even more movies, TV shows, live TV, sports, music, channels, apps and games to the Amazon Fire TV platform every week—and it shows. Amazon Fire TV selection has grown 127% in just the last 6 months, and is continuing to accelerate,” said Steve Rabuchin, Vice President Amazon Appstore. “With the addition of new titles like Fox News, PopcornflixCandy Crush Saga and GameFly, customers now have access to even more of their favorite TV shows, news content, top quality games and live TV.”
