Free Streaming Service through Amazon Freevee

What is Amazon Freevee?

Amazon first launched the free, ad-supported, streaming video service in January 2019, under the name IMDb Freedive. Later that year, the company changed the name of the service to IMDb TV. 

In April 2022, the service got yet another name change, this time to its current brand of Amazon Freevee. However, the basic business model hasn’t changed. It still offers a number of older and more recent TV shows and movies that you can watch completely for free, with some video ad breaks. It’s also been slowly adding a number of exclusive TV shows to the service as well.

Where is it available?

Amazon Freevee is currently available in the US and the UK, and there are plans to expand the service to Germany later in 2022. 

If you have a Windows or Mac PC, you can access Amazon Freevee via the Amazon Prime Video web site. It’s listed as one of the Prime Video “channels”. However, you don’t need a Prime subscription to access Freevee on your PC.

On other devices, you can download a stand-alone Amazon Freevee app to watch the content. They are available for iOS and Android mobile devices, along with Roku streaming sticks, boxes, and smart TVs. You can also get the app for Amazon’s Fire TV sticks, boxes, and smart TVs, the Amazon Fire tablet, and Android/Google TV-supported devices. There’s also an app available for Samsung and LG smart TVs, along with Sony’s Playstation 4 and 5 game consoles and Microsoft’s Xbox One and Xbox Series S/X game consoles. Finally, it’s accessible for Comcast’s Xfinity cable TV and internet users.

Are there “Live” TV channels on Freevee?

While not as prominent as other free streaming services like Pluto TV or The Roku Channel, Freevee does have a small selection of “live” TV channels. These are shows that run 24/7 content that the user has no control over, like a typical broadcast or cable TV channel. You can select from truly live news content like Newsy or AccuWeather Now, or watch constant reruns of shows like Unsolved Mysteries, classic Doctor Who, and more.
