Amazon Prime members in the UK can now access factual, lifestyle, entertainment and sport from discovery+ via Prime Video.
With immediate effect, the discovery+ entertainment package can be added to Amazon Prime Channels for £4.99 a month. The entertainment and sport package can be added for £6.99 a month, which includes sports otherwise shown on Eurosport.
The service was added to Amazon Prime Channels in the US earlier this year. The new deal expands a previous arrangement that allowed UK Amazon Prime members to access the main Discovery Channel.
Discovery+ is less than one year old, but has been rapidly signing deals boosting its reach beyond traditional pay TV channels.
Announcing the move Julian Monaghan, Director, Prime Video Channels Europe, said:
“I’m delighted that Prime members in the UK can now add discovery+ to their Prime Video experience through Prime Video Channels. Discovery are leaders in the factual space and we’re pleased to be bringing popular TV series like Gold Rush, Faking It and live sport like the Australian Open to our customers, adding to our ever-growing line-up of premium and specialist Prime Video Channels in the UK.”
James Gibbons Executive Vice President UK & Nordics, Discovery, added:
“We’re thrilled to introduce discovery+ to Amazon Prime Video channels in the UK. We have an incredible portfolio of highly compelling and relatable shows and we’re proud to make it more accessible to a wider audience through such important collaborations with our strategic industry partners.”
