Amazon’s free, ad-supported streaming service Freevee has added a highlights channel from CNN and more than a dozen other content streams from Warner Bros Discovery (WBD).

The channel, called CNN Headlines, is part of a broader package of 16 content streams programmed by WBD that have rolled out on other streaming platforms over the past few months.

CNN Headlines offers news headlines and featured clips from CNN’s news and opinion programming, along with shorts from CNN’s digital production team. The channel was first offered on Paramount Global’s Pluto TV and later debuted on Samsung’s free streaming service Samsung TV Plus.

In addition to the CNN Headlines channel, Freevee is adding a number of other WBD content streams, including marathon channels of “Say Yes to the Dress,” “Bachelor Nation,” “Nikita,” “The FBI” and “Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern.”

Other content streams launching this week on Freevee are:

  • WBTV Chasing Criminals
  • WBTV Classic Cinema
  • WBTV Generation Drama: Love and scandal shows
  • WBTV In the Garage
  • WBTV Living with Evil: Shocking stories
  • WBTV Love Kills
  • WBTV On the Telly: British shows
  • WBTV Science is Amazing
  • WBTV Travel & Adventure

Other free streaming content channels from WBD will launch on Freevee early next year, the companies said in a statement.

Freevee is widely available on streaming TV platforms like Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV (Google TV) and Apple TV, as well as on phones, tablets and some newer-model smart TV sets.
