Soon viewers can watch Bosch seasons 1 through 7 plus Bosch: Legacy for free.
There has been a lot of excitement surrounding the release date for the highly anticipated Bosch spinoff Bosch: Legacy which arrives on May 6th. We have also learned that the home of the spinoff, Amazon’s ad-supported streaming service, is being rebranded as Freevee.
What some viewers may not know is that the full catalog of the original Bosch series (seasons 1 through 7) is being added to the free service on April 22nd, which is a few weeks ahead of the arrival of Bosch: Legacy. Additionally, Bosch will have its own dedicated FAST channel on the streaming service.
Freevee is available in the UK and soon to be launched in the US. Freevee will come to Germany later in 2022.

What does this mean?
First of all, viewers will soon be able to enjoy the whole Bosch series and the spinoff without paying for a subscription service. Friends who have been missing out on Bosch due to not having a paid subscription can get on board with Amazon’s longest running original series for free.
The original series will be added to the ad-supported streamer several weeks ahead of the Bosch: Legacy spinoff release. While it is not required to watch the original series ahead of the spinoff, it certainly gives viewers a chance to get the full Bosch experience without a paid subscription to Amazon Prime.
What is the Bosch FAST channel?
Another great addition to the Amazon’s free streaming service, currently IMDb TV and soon to be Freevee, is the FAST channel being included with the service. FAST (free ad-supported streaming TV service) channels stream live in a marathon-style format without having to use on demand features to select a specific episode. Of course, you still have the on demand option as well.
The Bosch FAST channel will stream live so that everyone can be watching the same episode at the same time, very much like the broadcast TV experience. For instance, fans could set a time to watch the Bosch channel and live Tweet together. It all depends on the experience you are looking for at the time.
Free and flexible
Ad-supported streaming eliminates a paid subscription. The addition of the FAST channel brings flexibility allowing viewers to use on demand features to select a specific episode or use the Bosch channel to sit back and watch whatever is airing live.
