BT TV is now rolling out the Prime Video app to its 4K set top boxes, bringing users access to original Amazon shows such as The Grand Tour, Man In the High Castle and the hit Jack Ryan series.
Customers must sign up to Prime via the Amazon website and then login to the app on their set top box to watch Amazon’s exclusive content.
They can also subscribe to the add-on Amazon Channels service, plus rent and buy movies and TV shows on their set top box.
The two firms confirmed their tie-up, which makes BT the first UK pay-TV provider to offer both Netflix and Prime Video on the same box, earlier this year and users of BT’s non-4K YouView boxes have had access to Prime since June.
BT’s first generation YouView STBs, dubbed the H3, are excluded from the roll-out due to a “hardware limitation” and users of these boxes are being advised to upgrade.
Speaking earlier this year Tony Singh, content and business development director for BT, said the ISP’s ambition was “to offer an unrivalled choice of TV content for our customers by partnering with the very best providers and, with Prime Video joining a brilliant line-up including BT Sport, Netflix, NOW TV, BBC iPlayer.”
Early next year BT is set to cement its content aggregator status with an expansion of Sky’s Now TV service which will let customers watch and record the satellite giant’s movie, sports and entertainment channels.
