Amazon's Fire TV platform now has a free section that it says will highlight a curated selection from thousands of free TV shows, movies, news and more. 

The new "Free" tab began rolling out to Fire TV users in the US on Tuesday. It opens with a row of free, ad-supported streaming apps, including the Amazon-owned IMDb TV, Tubi, Pluto TV, Crackle, The CW and News app. You'll also be able to find apps that offer free content like Red Bull, PBS, PBS Kids and Twitch, which is also owned by Amazon.  (Editors' note: Pluto TV and CNET are both owned by ViacomCBS.)
