Starz May 24 announced it is launching branded subscription streaming video channels in Germany and United Kingdom on Amazon Prime Video.
Starz programming for the first time will be available in the U.K. and Germany – including day-and-date with U.S. subscribers – via Amazon Channels.
Amazon Channels, which launched in the U.S. in 2015 affording Prime members access to third-party over-the-top video services, includes access to the Starz OTT video service.
Starz original shows include “Power,” “Boss,” “Survivor’s Remorse,” “Vida,” “Party Down,” and “Sweetbitter,” among others.
“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,” Chris Albrecht, president of Starz, said in a statement.
Starz, which was acquired nearly two years ago by Lionsgate for $4.4 billion, also operates Starz Play Arabia – the company’s first international OTT platform.
“We’ve taken a major step forward [internationally] by launching Starz Play on Amazon,” said Jon Feltheimer, CEO of Lionsgate.
