Amazon Freevee announced on Monday that throughout the year, more than 100 original series and movies from Prime Video will be available to stream for free on the ad-supported streaming service.
Starting Friday, May 26, Freevee users can stream the first three episodes of The Summer I Turned Pretty. Also launching in May are the first three episodes of A League of Their Own, The Terminal List, Paper Girls, Goliath, The Tick, full seasons of Homecoming and Upload and The Vast of Night.
Later this year, Freevee viewers also will be able to stream the first seasons of Reacher and The Wheel of Time, which has yet to receive a Season 2 premiere date.
More than 50 movies and TV series — including Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls, The Grand Tour, Mozart in the Jungle, Bosch, Modern Love, Savage X Fenty, Sylvie’s Love, Troop Zero, and Late Night — are already streaming on Freevee.
Additionally, Freevee has its own original content including Jury Duty, Bosch: Legacy, Judy Justice, High School, Hollywood Houselift with Jeff Lewis, Sprung and more. Upcoming Freevee Originals include the coming-of-age comedy Primo on Friday, May 19 and the new court program Tribunal Justice premiering Friday, June 9.
Amazon Originals will remain available for ad-free viewing on Prime Video.
I pay for streaming for the content and lack of commercials.
Any word on another season of leverage?
That’s what I want to know, too.
Just a quick nitpick: it’s “The Vast OF Night” and it’s a movie (and it’s great)
I fully support Amazon putting content both on Prime and Freevee. It’s all the content they put ONLY on Freevee — so it isn’t available without commercials, even for people who are shelling out $139 per year for Prime membership — that makes it seem like they don’t value their paying customers.
Some of it may be contractual. The production companies may share in the revenue streams from advertising or have different international arrangements. For what it’s worth, I’m guessing most streamers will have advertising even for the paid tiers within a year or so. And/or be facing substantial price increases
I actually think this is really smart idea. It allows then to get value from a series/movie after it having an exclusive window on Prime. And it’s also good marketing. Netflix wishes it could do something like this with the decade of content they have gathering dust.
I agree on Amazon getting more value but it also can benefit consumers with the Freevee runs adding to fanbases which can rebound back to new seasons on Prime. Thus new seasons can gain larger audiences which could lead to more renewals and longer running series.
Prime is ok if you have money you don’t need.
It’s a quick question and not a complaint or anything but I love Reacher, but I won’t be able to see it on Amazon prime. I’ll have to watch it on their other network which means that I have to deal with the commercials or will it still be on Amazon prime as well, I’m a little confused…?
The article mentions that the FIRST season of Reacher will be available on Freevee later this year. So sounds like the second season will be shown on Prime first and later be shown on Freevee.
Oh… And by the way if anyone hasn’t seen Sprung on Prime or Freevee it’s worth the watch. Was funny and great to see Martha Plimton and Garrett Dillahunt from Raising Hope together again
That’s nice, but when are we getting Reacher season 2 already?! :)
