In addition to Freevee’s ad-supported video streaming service, which includes thousands of TV shows and movies, both original and licensed content, Freevee also offers free ad-supported (FAST) channels. The latter is more like a traditional cable TV experience where you can immediately tune into something that’s airing live as soon as you launch the app.
Freevee currently includes over 250 FAST channels in the US, with themed programming channels focused on movies and TV shows, plus original channels exclusive to Freevee and Prime Video, and syndicated channels with partners such as FOX Weather, PickleTV, Vevo and more Amazon says it will expand its FAST offering by 75% by 2023.
