Several of Freevee’s original series — including Leverage: Redemption and American Rust — have already been proactively moved to Prime Video for their coming seasons. More Freevee originals, such as Bosch: Legacy, are expected to follow suit.

No point in having 2 video services that are both showing ads! Just move everything to regular Prime Video now that it has ads!

Gareth,

Yups. I expected this to happen the moment Amazon decided to do ads on Prime video.

I don't care about the movies or original series, I just hope they move the old shows over to prime.

There's quite a bit of stuff on there. It would greatly enhance Prime's catalog and value, and make it available without ads if you want to pony up for the subscription. There was no ad-free option for FreeVee, as far as I know (?).

Since this would make good sense for the customer, they probably won't do it.

Acer,

FreeVee didn't have an ad-free option. If Amazon rolls FreeVee content into Prime, it will actually be a nice enhancement to it. I might even pony up the bucks for the no-ad option. 'course, it makes too much sense for Amazon to do it. So, I ain't getting my hopes up.
