There is no secret that Discovery Networks have made som massive broadcasting deals the recent years. Maybe we’ve got the answer to why – by the new cooperation with Amazon.
”For the first time, Prime members in the UK will be able to choose to watch premium TV channels without having to sign up to a bundle or a contract, giving them the freedom to pay for only what they want to watch,” said Alex Green, MD, Europe, Amazon Channels.
”From live sport to Bollywood, arthouse cinema to reality TV, plus award-winning TV shows from popular channels like Discovery and ITV, Amazon Channels gives power back to customers to choose exactly what they want to watch.”
Mr Green also declined to “rule in” or “rule out” the possibility of Amazon acquiring its own live exclusive rights to top-tier sports content such as the English Premier League in the future.
