In addition to new entertainment channels, Amazon Fire TV has also added new games such as Shovel Knight, Telltale’s Minecraft: Story Mode, Dark Echo, and Olli Olli 2.

“We’re thrilled to bring these popular new channels, apps, and games to Fire TV customers,” said Steve Rabuchin, VP, Amazon Appstore.
