With the streaming market featuring a lot to choose from, some consumers are opening up to free services with an occasional ad break like Freevee than ponying up more money for another subscription. So how can you start watching Freevee right now?

Here's what you need to know about how to watch Amazon Freevee.

How to watch Amazon Freevee

Amazon Freevee is currently available for US and UK viewers, with the plan for the streaming service to launch in Germany later in 2022. As far as how these viewers can start watching Freevee, there are multiple options.

First, Amazon Freevee is available as an app on Amazon's Fire TV and Fire Tablets, as well as being a free channel to access on Prime Video.

There is also the ability to get Freevee as an app on third-party devices. The list of compatible devices includes:

  • Roku devices
  • Samsung smart TVs (2017-2021 models)
  • Comcast's Xfinity Flex
  • Xfinity X1
  • Chromecast with Google TV
  • NVIDIA SHIELD
  • Android TV devices

Finally, there's the mobile option, with the Amazon Freevee app also available on iPhone, iPad and Android mobile devices.

Again, Amazon Freevee is a free service that requires no subscription because it has ads. On the ad front, Amazon touts that Freevee has half of the ads that traditional linear TV does.
