Warner Bros content for Amazon Prime UK
February 24, 2014
Amazon and Warner Bros International Television Distribution have agreed a UK instant video subscription deal to bring five hit US TV series to Amazon Prime Instant Video, which launches in the UK on February 26th.
The multi-year agreement sees Amazon Prime Instant Video acquire the UK on demand subscription streaming rights to multiple seasons of Warner Bros TV shows – Arrow, The Following, Hostages, Revolution and The 100 – following their linear UK broadcast runs. The first seasons of Arrow, The Following and Revolution will go live on Amazon Prime Instant Video this year with Hostages and The 100 in 2015, and subsequent seasons of each show following thereafter.
Jeffrey R. Schlesinger, President, Warner Bros. Worldwide Television Distribution, commented: “We are very pleased to extend and develop our relationship with Amazon in a deal that demonstrates the growing appetite for SVoD rights to our TV shows in the UK. UK viewers can now look forward to either re-watching or discovering these quality series on the Prime Instant Video streaming service in the coming months and years.”
