Everybody wants to know what channels Amazon’s Fire TV has to offer compared to other streaming media players such as Apple TV, Chromecast, and most specifically Roku. While Roku players still have many more channels, Amazon is not wasting any time getting the most popular channels added to the Fire TV lineup.
