IMDb TV (now Amazon Freevee) will launch a new FAST channel for Judy Justice on January 24, the same day the Amazon ad-supported streaming service debuts five new episodes of the court show. 

IMDb TV has close to 50 free ad-supported TV (FAST) channels, including recent additions such as The Price is Right: The Barker Era and Supermarket Sweep.

IMDb TV, which fashioned a new reality court series around retired Manhattan judge and longtime syndicated star Judy Sheindlin, debuted the first three Judy Justice episodes back on November 1, with a total of 45 installments posting before the series went on hiatus on December 17. 

That total is apparently enough for Amazon to feel comfortable programming a linear FAST channel, which will line the show up in a grid-like format that fans of Sheindlin's long-running, massively successful broadcast syndication series, Judge Judy, might be more comfortable with. ■
