Westinghouse and Amazon: A Newsworthy Combination

JAN 30, 2017

The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is a truly global affair, attracting companies from 81% of the countries in the world, more media representatives than The Olympics and over 175,000 consumers. So when a Westinghouse brand product becomes the talk of the show, we know we are doing something right.

At the show, Westinghouse Electronics announced they will be one of only three brands producing TV sets with Amazon Fire built in – and believe that this will be the first to market. This will allow consumers access to over 7,000 channels, apps and Amazon Alexa services.


The announcement was covered by many news outlets, including The Wall Street Journal. You can find the article here if you have a subscription, http://www.wsj.com/articles/amazon-brings-fire-tv-experience-to-third-party-tv-sets-1483563379
