iHEARTRADIO will now be available out of the box on AMAZON Fire TV; it was also one of the first apps available and optimized on AMAZON's line of Kindle Fire tablets. CCM+E's online radio channel has already integrated into APPLE's CarPlay, SAMSUNG's Gear 2 Smartwatch, QUALCOMM's AllPlay and consummated new auto partnerships with AT&T DRIVE, GM, JAGUAR LAND ROVER, KIA and Volvo.
"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," CLEAR CHANNEL Pres./Digital BRIAN LAKAMP said. "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," AMAZON VP/Appstore and Games MIKE GEORGE said. "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."
Earlier TODAY, AMAZON introduced Fire TV, a small black box, priced at $99, that enables television sets to access Internet programming, including streaming shows from its AMAZON PRIME subscription service, and a giant library of video games.
