Last year Amazon announced that they are adding FreeTime to the Fire TV Sticks and soon to select Fire TV Edition Smart TVs. With FreeTime on Fire TV, parents will find a kid-friendly video experience with strong parental controls that give parents the ability to manage their child’s FreeTime settings, including age filter settings, bedtime settings, and weekday and weekend settings. Plus as parents, you can add and remove content from your child’s FreeTime profile giving you far more control over what your kids can access with the Fire TV.
Now just in time to deal with lockdowns rolling out around the nation, Amazon is offering 3-months of FreeTime Unlimited for just $0.99. After that deal, the price returns to $6.99 a month for Prime Members and $9.99 a month for non-Prime members.
Amazon says when you pair it with with a FreeTime Unlimited subscription or a Prime membership, kids can enjoy access to thousands of premium movies and TV shows on select Fire TV devices, including new and popular titles like LEGO Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu, Pete the Cat, Barbie Dreamtopia, and Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny, from brands like LEGO, Amazon Studios, Mattel, and Prime Video.
