The Amazon Freevee app, which offers free, ad-supported streaming that doesn’t require users to subscribe, is the centerpiece of the company’s most recent promotion, which expands the services that Prime Video provides.
More content is now available on Freevee thanks to the company’s use of various Prime Video Original series and films. For the entire year of 2023, up to 100 Amazon Prime Video originals will come to Freevee, with the initial rollout beginning later this month to add more content to the platform.
Customers would be able to watch the first three episodes of “The Summer I Turned Pretty” for free, just on Freevee, as part of the first round of Prime Video’s freebies, which would begin on May 26.
Before the second season of “The Wheel of Time” premieres on Prime Video, viewers of “Freevee” will also be able to stream the entire first season of the Amazon Original series “Reacher” and “The Wheel of Time.”
This is a big step for Amazon as it aims to make Prime Video Originals more accessible outside of its subscription-based platform. The company wants to reach a wider audience and take advantage of the rising demand for free, ad-supported streaming entertainment, so it has decided to make some of its most well-known episodes freely accessible on Amazon Freevee.
Later this year, more than 100 Prime Video Originals, including well-known episodes from the firm, will be accessible on Freevee, according to Amazon. The business guarantees that its advertisements will be few and won’t ruin the viewers’ experience.
The choice to release some of its Prime Video Originals on Freevee is an indication of the expanding significance of free ad-supported (FAST) streaming platforms in the overall streaming environment. With the rise of free, ad-supported streaming services like Pluto TV and Tubi, there is a rising desire for high-quality content that can be watched without a monthly cost.
Freevee is accessible on numerous platforms, including the Google Play store, the Apple App Store, LG and Samsung TVs, Google TV, Roku, Android TV, Xbox and PlayStation consoles, and more.
The Streaming Features of Amazon
Amazon is constantly enhancing the features of its streaming platform, one of which was marked by a UI change, in an effort to catch up to its competitors Netflix, Disney+, and others.
Watch out for its material, which includes shows like “The Expanse,” often regarded as the greatest on the network, as well as “Jack Ryan,” “The Boys,” “The Marvellous Ms. Maisel,” and other shows.

While it’s unclear whether Freevee will be successful in drawing in a larger audience, the presence of Prime Video Originals is probably going to be a big draw for many viewers.
Viewers of Freevee will have access to some of the best material from one of the top streaming services in the world thanks to the more than 100 Originals that will be made accessible on the platform later this year.
