Amazon’s New FREE Streaming Service Will Reportedly Be Announced This Week





Male hand holding TV remote control.It looks like Amazon is working on a new streaming service to take on services like Tubi, Crackle, and The Roku Channel.

According to CNBC, the new service will be built from Amazon’s IMDB service and will include free ad-supported content. According to reports Amazon has been in talks with at least three major media companies to bring their content to the new service. This is not new for Amazon as they have for some time offered free episodes of shows supported by ads. Amazon has also allowed people to make videos free on Prime Video with ads.

Now, this service seems to be a more significant push into free ad-supported content. Instead of just an episode here or there now movies and full seasons will be free on Amazon. Similar to The Roku Channel, Crackle, and Tubi it sounds like this will be an on-demand streaming service free as long as you watch ads.

If you don’t want ads, you can always still subscribe to Amazon Prime. Yet for those who don’t want Amazon Prime, this is one more free option for cord cutters.
