Amazon Prime Video, unlike Netflix, Hulu, Apple TV+ and Disney+, continues to embrace live sports programming. Prime streams NFL Thursday Night Football, in addition to select Major League Baseball games.
Now in the United Kingdom, Prime Video has struck a distribution deal with online BT TV service in time for Premier League soccer.
New and renewing BT TV subscribers will get free six-month access to Prime Video, which includes Amazon’s first live streaming of England’s top professional soccer league.
Original Prime Video programming includes: “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan,” “The Boys,” “The Grand Tour,” “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” “Carnival Row” and “Good Omens”.
“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,” Pete Oliver, managing director of marketing, BT Consumer, said in a statement. “Prime Video also offers great TV and film, so there really is something for everyone this festive season.”
