Recently, Amazon has launched its first live video show by the name of Style Code Live. It is a fashion show that people can watch on the internet or on Amazon Fire TV. People who have viewed the show found it really interesting.

As we all know that the majority of the online video streaming services can be accessed on demand. People just require to hit a button and they will be able to watch the live program that is being streamed online. That’s the conventional way of watching live shows, but what if the shows are boring? People will have to watch it or turn the TV off. But, Amazon Fire TV is coming with a feature that will allow people to find live shows. The company is also waiting to have more live shows for the users of Fire TV in the near future.

Going more into the details for the software update that was done recently, ‘AFTV News discovered a few findings of the new buttons that will be designated as the ‘live stations’ and ‘live channels’ along with the programs that are ‘Watch Live’ buttons and ‘On Now’.

Those who are worried that they are going to miss an episode should not worry anymore, as they will be able to watch episodes after they goes on air. The shows will be displayed on the original air date, but people will be able to watch on-demand shows at the completion of the original broadcast.
