Ama­zon Prime Video comes to BT boxes

Web User - - What To Watch Online -

BT TV has be­come the first ma­jor UK TV ser­vice to of­fer Ama­zon Prime Video through its set-top boxes (­ma­zon453). Prime mem­bers can now use their BT boxes to watch all Ama­zon’s TV shows and films, in­clud­ing The Grand Tour, Parks and Recre­ation and – from next year – 20 ex­clu­sive Premier League matches.

You’ll still have to stump up £79 per year for Prime, in ad­di­tion to your BT sub­scrip­tion, but the built-in app means you no longer have to use ad­di­tional hard­ware to watch Ama­zon’s con­tent on your TV.

Rivals Vir­gin Me­dia and Sky don’t of­fer Ama­zon Prime Video, but both have raised the bar with their Net­flix of­fer­ings. Vir­gin now in­cludes free Net­flix for sub­scribers, while Sky will soon in­te­grate Net­flix con­tent in its own Sky Q plat­form.

BT’S next move is set to be a Now TV app. Orig­i­nally planned to roll out along­side Ama­zon, Now TV is now likely to ar­rive later this year.
