About Watching First Episodes of TV Shows for Free

You can stream the first episode of eligible TV seasons for free on selected Prime Video devices.

The following devices currently support First Episode Free:

  • Amazon Fire TV
  • Fire phone
  • Fire Tablets
  • Roku
  • PlayStation 3 & PlayStation 4
  • XBox One
  • iPhone, iPad & iPod touch

First Episode Free titles include advertising breaks before and during video playback. Many of the TV seasons that feature the first episode for free are also included in the Prime Video catalog. If you're currently a Prime member, you'll be able to watch these episodes at no additional cost, without ads. However, for First Episode Free titles that are not available to stream as part of your Prime membership, you'll see advertising breaks during playback.

You can find eligible TV shows by opening Prime Video and browsing the First Episode Free carousel from the TV or Video section.

"First Episode Free" or "Free with Ads" messaging will appear on the detail page for available titles. Tap Watch Now or Play to start streaming.

Note: You must be logged into your Amazon account, and must also accept the Prime Video Terms of Use to access First Episode Free videos.
