Amazon Prime Video now available on BT TV

Friday, June 22nd 2018 by Phil Wilkinson-Jones

BT TV viewers can now watch Amazon Prime Video through their YouView box.

A partnership announced last month makes BT the first major British TV platform to offer Prime Video via its set top box – crucially, as far as BT is concerned, ahead of rivals Sky and Virgin Media.

Until now, BT customers would have had to use a separate streaming device such as an Amazon Fire TV stick, Roku stick or Apple TV to watch Prime Video.

Now, not only will shows such as The Marvellous Mrs Maisel and The Grand Tour be available on the YouView box at the click of a button, customers signing up to Amazon for the first time via their set top box will be able to pay for the service on their BT bill.

BT TV customers will also be able to watch every televised Premier League match from the 2019/20 season – as long as BT Sport is included in your package and you are also subscribed to Amazon Prime Video and Sky Sports.

Tony Singh, content and business development director for BT’s Consumer division, said: “We’re delighted to be the first UK pay-TV service to offer Amazon Prime Video content to our customers.

'Unrivalled choice'

“BT TV gives our customers the flexibility they want to watch all their favourite shows – and of course all the sport – in one place and on one bill. Our ambition is to offer an unrivalled choice of TV content for our customers by partnering with the very best providers, with Prime Video joining a brilliant line-up including BT Sport, Netflix, NOW TV, BBC iPlayer.”

Brett Ballbach, business development director for Prime Video Europe, added: “We want Prime members to be able to watch all their favourite content when they want, on any device they want, and Prime Video is already available on thousands of devices, from Smart TVs to games consoles to tablets & mobile devices.

“We’re delighted to add to that range of devices with Prime Video now available to access via BT TV set top boxes – we think customers are going to love the opportunity to stream their favourite Prime Original shows and Prime exclusive sports on the device.”
