New and existing BT TV customers who recontract can now sign up for Amazon Prime Video and receive the streaming service for six months at no extra cost via the Prime Video app on BT TV.

Customers will receive their six months subscription in time for Prime Video’s first Premier League games this December. Prime Video will show two full Premier League rounds consisting of 20 matches, for the very first time next month. This adds to the sporting line-up already on BT Sport including more Premier League matches, as well as UEFA Champions League and Emirates FA Cup football.

Customers will also be able to watch thousands of popular movies and TV shows, including Amazon Originals such as Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, The Boys, The Grand Tour, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Carnival Row and Good Omens.

Additionally, BT TV customers can also now benefit from the added convenience of using their Amazon Alexa-enabled device (including Amazon Echo and Echo Dot) to search for content for the first time. Customers can link BT TV to their Alexa account by enabling the BT TV skill via the Alexa app.

Pete Oliver, Managing Director of Marketing, BT Consumer, said: “With six months Amazon Prime Video on us offering access to even more Premier League matches, all in one place with integrated search and one simple bill – there’s never been a better time to be on BT TV. Amazon Prime Video also offers great TV and film, so there really is something for everyone this festive season”.
