Freevee Laces Up Channel Featuring ‘Rocky’ Films in March
'The Addams Family' not just available on Wednesdays
Freevee, Amazon’s free, ad-supported streaming TV (FAST) service, said it added a Rocky Channel for March.
The channel will feature all six movies in the Rocky franchise.
Amazon acquired the Rocky films when it bought Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer for $8.45 billion
Freevee also added a channel featuring the creepy and kooky Addams Family, now back in viewers’ consciousness because of the popularity of Wednesday, the Netflix series that reimagines the Addams’ daughter Wednesday.
Another new Freevee channel offers the Best of Neighbours, the Aussie soap opera that has featured actors including Margot Robbie, Russell Crowe, Kylie Minogue, Jason Donovan, Guy Pearce, Natalie Imbruglia and Liam Hemsworth.
All 15 seasons of Lifetime’s Matched Married Meet have found a home on Freevee, as has the series Nashville on the Nashville Channel.
A channel based on Spin magazine is also coming to Freevee on March 21.
And because it’s Women’s History Month, Freevee will be highlighting The Carol Burnett Show, Judy Justice, financial advice expert Suze Orman and French chef Julia Child.
In all, Freevee offers more than 200 FAST channels. ■
