Amazon Channels launches today in the UK, Germany & Austria

23 May 2017 | Rasmus Larsen |

Amazon has today expanded its “Channels” initiative in the UK, Germany and Austria. The service allows members of the Prime service to add channel subscriptions for “a low monthly subscription fee” without bundles.

Channels via streaming

Amazon Channels was first launched in the US in late 2015. Think of it as the classic TV channel experience reimagined for streaming. By serving channels via streaming you can watch live TV on more devices.

With the service Amazon offers an alternative to YouTube TV, Hulu’s live TV service, PlayStation Vue, and others. Amazon says that there are no bundles, meaning that you can subscribe to channels on an individual basis, and that you can cancel anytime.

- "For the first time, Prime members in the UK and Germany will be able to choose to watch premium TV channels without having to sign up to a bundle or a contract, giving them the freedom to pay for only what they want to watch," said Alex Green, MD, Europe, Amazon Channels. "From live sport to Bollywood, arthouse cinema to reality TV, and award-winning TV shows from popular channels like Discovery and ITV, Amazon Channels gives power back to customers to choose exactly what they want to watch."

Access via the Amazon app

Everything is included in the Amazon Prime Video along with your usual streaming catalog. This means that you can watch your channels on FireTV, game consoles, Smart TVs, and mobile devices.

The app offers unified search and a unified user interface. Some channels also offer free trials and besides live TV the on-demand catalog is included. The “majority of channels are available to download”.

More than 40 channels are offered in the UK, including ITV, Eurosport, and Discovery. In Germany, more than 25 channels are offered.

Amazon Channels is live today and you can explore it now on Amazon UK and Amazon DE.
