“What channels are free with the Firestick in the UK?” – that’s what lots of Fire TV users are asking.
Watching TV has never been easier than it is in 2020. As well as TV subscription services such as Sky, new additions to the market such as Fire TV sticks and Freeview are available. Streaming sticks and devices are a fraction of the cost of traditional TV subscriptions and provide a whole host of entertainment.
As well as apps, such as Netflix, Amazon Fire TV Sticks can provide viewers with all kinds of channels, many of which may not be expected.
All our favourite shows, from I’m A Celebrity to Ozark can be watched via a Firestick. So, here’s a look at what TV channels are free with the Firestick in the UK.

Pick TV on Firestick
Pick TV gained a fair deal of popularity in 2020 due to the channel airing free-to-view Premier League football over the summer. Understandably, many football fans wish to watch the channel and many of them have a Firestick as their way of watching TV.
Watching Pick TV on a Firestick isn’t exactly possible. A Freeview app isn’t available via the regular app store, so anyone wishing to watch Pick may need to take out a Now TV subscription. From here, open the Now TV app on a mobile device, then you can cast the Pick channel to the TV.
TV Player and UKTV Play offer UK TV channels on a Firestick. TV Player requires a paid subscription to view its content. There’s no contract, you can cancel any time and it costs £6.99.
