50 Best Streaming Free Trials on Amazon Fire TV

It's easy to see why Amazon Fire TV is regularly mentioned among the top media streaming devices. It's sleek and affordable, plus it seamlessly integrates with other parts of the Amazon ecosystem, such as the Alexa voice assistant and Amazon Prime. But the Fire TV also does well when it comes to other streaming services; it supports a wide array of them, many of which offer the much-coveted free trial. Below, we list the very best of these free trials, which range from the typical seven-day tryout to the rare 30-day test.

Named the "best all-around streaming service for cord-cutters" by Rolling Stone, DirecTV Stream tries to be all the good things about cable without any of the hassle. It has a big selection of channels, possibly the best stream quality in the market, and great DVR capability. For example, unlike with competitor Youtube TV, your DVR recordings on DirecTV will be the same quality as the live stream (often in 4K). The service also comes with a decent monthly price tag, and Netflix-style practicality that allows you to stream Live TV from anywhere by downloading the app. Within your home, you can stream on up to 20 devices (!), and from outside your home you can stream on up to three devices.

Amazon's premium membership program is an all-in-one bundle that includes access to the streaming platform Prime Video, more commonly referred to in this publication as “Amazon Prime.” A subscription entitles you not only to Amazon Prime's thousands of films and TV shows, but also to Amazon's delivery benefits, which include discounted fees, free shipping, and same-day delivery on select items. The membership bundle costs $14.99/month, but you can access the streaming service as a standalone for just $8.99.

Depending on where you live, access to Amazon Prime might differ.
