Amazon said Monday that Freevee, the ad-supported streaming service formerly known as IMDb TV, now has an Apple TV app. If you were using the Prime Video app to watch Freevee, you can now download its own app from the App Store to your Apple TV in 4K or HD.

As well as episodes from Amazon Studios like Bosch: Legacy and Pretty Hard Cases, Freevee also provides free access to other movies and TV shows, such as Mad Men and Knives Out. They will all be available as part of a new contract negotiated with Disney, and the streaming service now offers more than 75 channels, one of which is dedicated exclusively to Kim’s Convenience. Since this service is free, you can’t really complain about the lack of control over which episodes you watch. The app can be used on Apple TV, iOS, Android, Roku, some LG and Samsung smart TVs, Xbox, PlayStation, and other devices.

While the company is spending heavily on Prime Video programmes, such as NFL games and The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, there are plenty of reasons for Amazon to invest in its free streaming service. As part of its NewFronts presentation earlier this month, Amazon unveiled a pilot program for virtual product placement on both networks.

In contrast to typical product placement, which keeps Samsung devices out of the hands of evil characters in Succession and iPhones in I, Tonya, the product is simply inserted in post-production instead of being placed on the set. However, the blog post doesn’t specify whether it plans to replace the M & M’s with anything else in the future, such as a monetary payment for a placement two years down the road.

However, Freevee isn’t the only option for those looking for ad-supported streaming. The Roku Channel has been a major investment for Roku, while YouTube just added thousands of free, ad-supported TV shows to its catalogue. Streaming services that charge a subscription fee are increasingly reliant on advertising revenue to cover their costs. HBO and Hulu already have premium subscription packages with ads, just like Netflix and Disney Plus.
