by | May 3, 2023

The Washington Post has launched a free ad-supported (FAST) channel with Amazon Freevee, a premium free streaming service. According to a release, Washington Post Television, available 24 hours, 7 days a week, “will bring its trusted journalism to new audiences – providing an additional destination for breaking news as it happens, exclusive interviews with newsmakers, and in-depth reporting from the front lines.”

On May 6, Washington Post Television will go live with continuous coverage of King Charles III’s coronation.

“We are thrilled to introduce The Post’s journalism on a service that has such incredible reach. On Amazon Freevee we will be able to reach audiences who are increasingly looking online to get their news and entertainment,” said Micah Gelman, Director of Video at The Post. “This is a new avenue for us to broadcast breaking news with our incredible reporting team, helmed by Libby Casey who brings a deep understanding to a wide range of issues with her experience in breaking news, political stories and major events. We are thrilled for new audiences to seek out her reporting during important news moments.”

Washington Post Television will also offer additional content on Freevee including discussions with the world’s top business leaders, entertainment personalities and authors as part of Washington Post Live, the newsroom’s live journalism platform.

The release added that The Washington Post “also partnered with media technology leader, Amagi, to create and manage the 24/7 channel. A full suite of Amagi tools are being leveraged including Amagi CLOUDPORT for scheduling, cloud playout and delivery, Amagi THUNDERSTORM for server-side ad insertion, and Amagi LIVE to manage breaking news and live event coverage. Amagi’s ADS PLUS platform will provide additional monetization capabilities for the channel and advanced graphic HTML overlays will enhance the overall viewing experience.”
