AMAZON has a little-known free streaming app that recently made its way to the UK
Freevee, formerly known as IMDb TV, offers a collection of hundreds of TV shows and movies available on demand.
So what’s the catch? You must watch ads while streaming.
What is Freevee?
Freevee is a streaming platform that works similar to Netflix, Amazon Prime or Disney+.
However, the app differs from these giants in that you don’t have to pay a subscription fee to use the service.
Instead, Freevee is supported by advertising. Like YouTube, it costs nothing to use, but you do have to watch an ad or two every now and then.
In addition to on-demand content, FreeVee offers more than 60 “Fast Channels” that stream episodes of some shows live.
This part of the app works more like more traditional TV channels and is dedicated to popular series.
Advertisements appear in a manner similar to terrestrial broadcasts and are played continuously at regular intervals.
What’s on Amazon Freevee?
The platform has a good range of classic series including Babylon 5, The A-Team, Baywatch and Magnum PI
Amazon has also pumped money into original content, including Bosch spinoffs, Bosch: Legacy, and Plan B’s High School.
Also available is Judy Justice, a 120 episode series hosted by legendary judge Judy Sheindlin.
Amazon says it will increase its exclusive Originals range by 70 percent this year.
How to see Freevee
In the US, you can watch Freevee through a dedicated app available on cell phones, smart TVs, and consoles.
It’s also available in a section of the Prime Video app for smart TVs.
In the UK, you can only watch Freevee on mobile, TV and consoles via the Prime Video app.
However, if you have a FireTV device, you can check out the dedicated Freevee app.
On PCs and Macs, the service is available through Amazon Prime Video in your browser.
Freevee is currently only available in the US and UK and will launch in Germany in the coming months.
