AMAZON has bolstered its free telly service Freevee with 10 new channels for users in the UK, including NBCUniversal.
Freevee is a platform found on most smart TVs and all Fire Sticks (and Cubes), that offers telly free of charge in exchange for making viewers sit through ads first.
NBC Universal, which has made its debut on Freevee, will offer up classics that have previously been hard to find via streaming, such as Northern Exposure.
There is one slight catch, however.
These channels are live, which means shows won’t be available to watch on-demand.
Instead, viewers can watched the live streaming channels air episodes back-to-back, following a schedule if they want to catch specific episodes.
