Amazon announced that its free streaming service Freevee is now available in Germany. This is the second international launch for the AVOD platform, following the UK last year. Freevee offers hundreds of premium movies and TV shows, available anytime, at no cost.
The ad-supported service debuts in Germany with Amazon Freevee Originals including “Bosch: Legacy,” “Uninterrupted’s Top Class: The Life,” “Times of the Sierra Canyon Trailblazers,” and “Bug Out,” as well as a library of popular movies and television shows, including “Hotel Mumbai,” “Ostfriesisch für Anfänger,” “Nightcrawler,” “Tigermilch,” “2 Broke Girls,” “The Night Manager,” “Person of Interest,” and “Penny Dreadful.” The streaming service also features thematically programmed live linear channels from BBC Food, BBC Travel, BBC History, X-Factor: Das Unfassbare, FilmRise Serien, Craction TV, and Highway to Heaven.
Prime and non-Prime customers in Germany can access Amazon Freevee through the Prime Video app or website and, over the coming days, via a standalone app on Fire TV - no subscription necessary. On Prime Video, customers can access Amazon Freevee content through the “Popular Movies and TV – Free with Ads” carousel. Every month, Amazon Freevee will add new content, including Originals, linear channels and fan favorite licensed movies and TV shows, providing customers free entertainment across a variety of genres.
“In the United States and the UK we have quickly differentiated ourselves in the free streaming landscape through a hybrid of exclusive Originals from Amazon Studios and highly sought-after movies and television. We look forward to building on this momentum, and establishing Amazon Freevee as the premier AVOD destination in Germany as we deliver customers a growing slate of widely appealing content through a personalized streaming experience,” said Lauren Anderson and Ryan Pirozzi, Co-heads of Content and Programming at Amazon Freevee.
“Whether you are a longtime Prime member, or just learning about the premium streaming offerings at Amazon, German viewers will be pleasantly surprised by the high-quality, free programming now at their fingertips through Amazon Freevee. Customers have much to look forward to, and we’re only just getting started,” added Christian Hoeweler, Head of Amazon Freevee, Germany.
