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

In the early 1990s, Washington communities and activists had a vision of maintaining green wilderness and creating space where people could embrace the outdoors near urban cities like Seattle. “We’re all better and healthier when we’re connected to nature,” says Caroline Villanova, community and partnerships manager at Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust.

 

Visit Seattle, in partnership with the King County government, will host “Cloudbreak: Seattle’s Revive Live Music Fest,” in support of Seattle’s music community. 

 

The Addition, also known as Summit, at the Seattle Convention Center (recently renamed from the Washington State Convention Center) is making steady progress toward completion. With only months of construction remaining, interior details are quickly taking shape. In other progress, construction has begun on the codevelopment office project by its new owner, Hudson Pacific Properties Inc. (HPP).
