Looking for the inside scoop on Seattle music and travel? Visit Seattle is launching its Visit Seattle TV Amazon Fire TV app, which allows users of the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick to enjoy popular Seattle video content, including current regular series and short video clips. The Amazon Fire TV service further extends the reach of visitseattle.tv, launched last fall by Visit Seattle.

The new app offers a mix of branded video content, pulling directly from Visit Seattle’s YouTube channel as soon as new video content is added. Content includes episodes of the “Sounds by the Sound” series, currently in its third season on Revolt TV. The series explores Seattle through its music. Episodes include interviews with emerging and established artists and performances at city landmarks.

The new app also features Visit Seattle’s “First Takes,” a series of online films featuring first-time Seattle visitors being introduced to city-specific experiences, such as Pike Place Market, the Seattle Great Wheel, a ferry trip, Easy Street Records and Washington state wine tasting. visitseattle.org

Connecting the Community

Last summer, as communities across the state reeled, the CVB launched the “We Need Us!” campaign as a rally cry and reminder on the importance of supporting the businesses that make Minneapolis so unique.

“It really came from this question of, ‘How can we support our community that’s hurting in so many ways and make locals feel comfortable making those choices?’” says senior vice president of destination branding & strategy Courtney Ries.
