nexGTv now a featured app on Amazon Fire TV Stick

Subscription-led video entertainment app nexGTv has made its big-screen debut. The app is available on Fire TV Stick, a digital streaming device from Amazon, and can be downloaded from the Amazon India store. nexGTv has also been showcased prominently as a featured app in all product-related promotional material for the recently launched device.

Speaking on the development, Abhesh Verma, COO, nexGTv, said, “Having captured a significant share of the Indian OTT entertainment market, we wanted to consolidate on the leadership position that nexGTv has achieved in the sector. Expanding our content outreach to smart TVs and similar large-screen offerings was therefore the next logical step. Partnering with Amazon Fire TV Stick as a featured app is an extremely promising entry point for nexGTv. We want to build on it by launching more big-screen apps in the near future and allow nexGTv users to stream our massive content catalogue on any digital device of their choice, conveniently and seamlessly.”

nexGTv’s entire entertainment library, comprising 100+ live regional and national TV channels and around 500 movies will be initially available for free on Fire TV Stick as a part of the launch offer. This includes original nexGTv programming like It’s My City, the widely-popular web series featuring Priyanka Chopra as herself, as well as blockbuster movies, TV shows and international web-based content. Existing users can link their nexGTv accounts with the Amazon Fire app, and can also stream their preferred entertainment content on other Amazon devices such as Kindle, Fire TV and Fire Phone.
