Throughout the year, Freevee is promising to expand the FAST linear channel offering by 75%, which currently includes more than 250 channels in the U.S. across the following areas: thematically programmed channels, exclusive original channels from Freevee and Prime Video, and syndicated channels with partners including FOX Weather, PickleTV, and Vevo.
Within those new offerings is Mike Schur and Shea Serrano’s “Primo,” which is scheduled to arrive on May 19, and the new court program “Tribunal Justice” premiering June 9.
