Amazon to add video partners in UK, Germany - report

Monday 22 May 2017 | 09:20 CET | News
Amazon will shortly roll out an OTT service with linear TV channels and on-demand content in the UK and Germany, two people familiar with the matter told Broadband TV News. The new service Amazon Channels will offer around 25 pay-TV channels to start, both from major broadcast groups and smaller players, according to the report. This is part of the Streaming Partners Program, first launched in the US at the end of 2015, which allows Amazon Prime subscribers to add additional video options from third-party providers. All the billing is then handled by Amazon.
