Discovery Communications has agreed a deal for its pay-TV brand Discovery Channel to become available on Amazon Channels in Germany and Austria. The launch of Discovery Channel on the service extends the streaming cooperation between Discovery and Amazon, which launched Eurosport Player earlier this year with its extensive sports line up, including exclusive Friday night Bundesliga matches.
Amazon customers with an active Prime membership can now access Discovery Channel through live streams of the linear TV channel as well as catch up and VoD content. These new premium additions to Amazon Channels are available via the Prime Video App on Smart TVs, mobile iOS and Android devices and Fire tablets as well as on Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick, or through amazon.de/channels at €3.99 a month.
“After the successful launch of the Eurosport Player on Amazon Channels, we’re delighted to present our factual entertainment flagship Discovery Channel as an exciting new addition for Amazon’s customers,” commented Susanne Aigner-Drews, SVP & General Manager Discovery Networks Germany. “With a 30-year pedigree of telling great stories about the world, Discovery Channel has superfans around the globe who love its immersive factual content.
“With Discovery Channel being available at Amazon Channels, we are excited to offer customers yet another premium-brand,” added Mirjam Laux, General Manager Amazon Channels Germany/Austria. “Whether the depths of space, the icy expanses of Alaska or exciting moments in South America – there’s something for every documentary fan on Discovery Channel. Available in HD, with just one click in the same interface.”
