April 28, 2020
Discovery and Amazon have announced an expanded collaboration that will provide the tens of millions of new and existing Amazon Fire TV and Fire Tablet customers in the US with a one-year subscription to Discovery’s Food Network Kitchen, compliments of Amazon.
Amazon and Discovery first joined forces in 2019 to introduce Food Network Kitchen on Amazon devices, with hands-free access to Alexa. New and existing Fire TV and Fire Tablet customers will nowreceive a complimentary year-long subscription. Customers will be able to immediately enjoy live and on-demand cooking classes with Food Network culinary experts and fan-favorite personalities, along with world-renowned chefs. Customers can also stream episodes of popular Food Network shows ad-free, including 30 Minute Meals, Barefoot Contessa and Brunch @ Bobby’s.
“We were thrilled with the success of our initial collaboration with Amazon to launch Food Network Kitchen, and we couldn’t be more excited to introduce tens of millions of Fire TV and Fire Tablet customers to Food Network Kitchen,” said Peter Faricy, CEO, Global Direct-to-Consumer, Discovery. “With families and individuals preparing meals at home now more than ever, this offer will help provide ideas and encouragement to even more customers during this unprecedented time.”
“When Food Network Kitchen came to Fire TV and Alexa last year, we saw how much customers love cooking with, and learning from, their favorite chefs,” said Marc Whitten, VP of Amazon Entertainment Devices and Services. “Many of us are spending more time cooking at home during these challenging times and are in need of a little inspiration. That’s why we are excited to offer all of our new and existing Fire TV and Fire Tablet customers a free year of access to Food Network Kitchen.”
To coincide with the new offer, Food Network Kitchen and Amazon are launching the “We Cook Together” initiative to help those seeking inspiration and assistance in the kitchen. On May 2nd and 3rd, Food Network Kitchen will present a special “We Cook Together Weekend,” bringing back live classes for two days and allowing at-home cooks across the country the opportunity to cook alongside chefs, cooking in real-time from their own home kitchens.
