Amazon is now offering the option to bundle streaming services, including Showtime and Starz, with Prime memberships.
The Streaming Partners Program, which launched Tuesday, allows Prime members the ability to pay extra for 30 different streaming services all through Amazon. Subscribers will have access to special Prime pricing, free trials, one Watchlist across all subscriptions and the convenience of managing all subscriptions through one account.
"The way people watch TV is changing, and customers need an easier way to subscribe to and enjoy multiple streaming subscriptions," Michael Paull, vice president of digital video at Amazon, said in a statement. "With the Streaming Partners Program, we're making it easy for video providers to reach highly engaged Prime members, many of whom are already frequent streamers, and we're making it easier for viewers to watch their favorite shows and channels."
Amazon's Streaming Partners Program includes Showtime, Starz, A+E Network (Lifetime Movie Club), AMC (Shudder and SundanceNow Doc Club), Gaia, RLJ Entertainment (Acorn TV, Urban Movie Channel, Acacia TV), DramaFever (DramaFever Instant), Tribeca Short List, Cinedigm (Dove Channel, Docurama, CONtv), Smithsonian (Smithsonian Earth), IndieFlix (IndieFlix Shorts), Curiosity Stream, Qello, FlixFling (Cinefest, Nature Vision, Warriors and Gangsters, Dox, Monsters and Nightmares), BroadbandTV (Hooplakidz Plus), DEFY Media (ScreenJunkies Plus), Gravitas (Film Forum, Daring Docs, Fear Factory) and Ring TV Boxing.
