Amazon is adding STARZPLAY to its Prime Video Channels line-up in the UK and Germany. A new channel from the popular US TV network Starz, STARZPLAY will now give European viewers the opportunity to watch exclusive STARZ series all in one place for the first time, with future STARZ Originals launching exclusively on the same day as the US.

Only available in the UK and Germany to Prime members through Prime Video Channels for £4.99 a month, with a seven-day free trial, customers can watch the brand new, highly acclaimed shows Vida and Sweetbitter, as well as all future STARZ Original series, popular series such as Boss, Party Down, Survivor’s Remorse, and Swedish Dicks, and a movie library, featuring Requiem for a Dream, and The Hunger Games.

STARZPLAY joins Prime Video Channels as Amazon celebrates one year since launching its channels service in the UK and Germany, offering Prime members in the UK a line-up of over 70 channels, including live and on demand entertainment and sport, available as individual subscriptions, with no need to sign up to a bundle and anytime cancellation.

“Since launching Prime Video Channels in the UK and Germany a year ago, we continue to build on the selection of live and on demand TV channels for Prime members with over 120 channels across Europe, so it couldn’t be more fitting that today we celebrate by bringing customers STARZPLAY,” said Alex Green, European MD of Channels and Sport at Amazon Prime Video. “It’s fantastic we can now offer Prime members in the UK and Germany even more choice and quality, with the wide range of STARZ Originals, TV series and movies exclusively available on STARZPLAY.”

“The launch of STARZPLAY on Amazon in the UK and Germany marks a significant expansion of the STARZ platform into the global market, providing an exciting opportunity for us to build on the success of our relationship with Amazon Prime Video Channels,” said Starz President and CEO Chris Albrecht. “These new channels allow us to extend the reach of our storytelling and bring the growing portfolio of STARZ original series as well our extensive library of hit TV series and movies to a new audience.”

STARZPLAY will offer Prime members who have subscribed in the UK and Germany, its growing selection of future STARZ Originals exclusively on the same day they launch in the US, as well as a range of STARZ series, such as Houdini and Rosemary’s Baby, and hit movies such as 3:10 to Yuma, Bend It Like Beckham and Dirty Dancing.
