Freevee has thousands of premium movies and TV shows available to watch anytime and is releasing more original TV series in 2022.

The service uses adverts rather than a paid subscription, an increasingly popular streaming model, according to Ashraf Alkarmi, director of Amazon Freevee.

"Customers are increasingly shifting to streaming ad-supported premium content, and we have developed Amazon Freevee to deliver them highly sought content with limited ads," he said.

"Our new name clearly communicates who we are: An easy-to-navigate streaming service, available to users for free, whenever and wherever they choose to watch some of the greatest original and licensed content available."
