Amazon has expanded its free local news coverage on its Fire TV streaming device.
Amazon introduced its free news app last year, initially in just 12 cities. In March, the company expanded to 88 markets. The company has once again expanded the service, this time to 158 cities across the US.
Today’s expansion includes cities like Charleston, Wichita, Tucson, Reno, Raleigh-Durham, Honolulu, and Lincoln, and will double the local stations available from 126 to 259.
Customers can access their local news under the “Local News” tab in the app, or by saying “Alexa, play local news” using the Alexa Voice Remote.
