This is what happened between 4 and 10 May, 2020.

  • The 🥎 Weekly Golden Ball goes to FireTV. Amazon is trying something new with their "Linear Television Integration". They want to aggregate data on live TV channels, and display EPG data outside of the app. Viewers can navigate to the TV channels outside of the application, and can even use voice commands to get there.
