The Amazon Prime video offering just got a lot richer.

Amazon's streaming platform just got a lot bigger. Amazon Prime has now a Streaming Partners Program, allowing channels like Showtime and Starz to sell tens of millions of Prime members.

Free trials on all subscriptions,

Special Prime member pricing,

Latest episodes available simultaneous with broadcast,

Convenience of one account,

One Watchlist across all subscriptions,

Self-service cancellation of any subscription at anytime,

IMDb X-Ray integration,

Unified search and browse across subscriptions,

Unified voice search and ASAP on Fire TV.

“The way people watch TV is changing, and customers need an easier way to subscribe to and enjoy multiple streaming subscriptions,” said Michael Paull, Vice President of Digital Video at Amazon. “With the Streaming Partners Program, we’re making it easy for video providers to reach highly engaged Prime members, many of whom are already frequent streamers, and we’re making it easier for viewers to watch their favorite shows and channels.”

Initial subscription channel offerings include : SHOWTIME, STARZ, A+E Network (Lifetime Movie Club), AMC (Shudder and SundanceNow Doc Club), Gaia, RLJ Entertainment (Acorn TV, Urban Movie Channel, Acacia TV), DramaFever (DramaFever Instant), Tribeca Shortlist, Cinedigm (Dove Channel, Docurama, CONtv), Smithsonian (Smithsonian Earth), IndieFlix (IndieFlix Shorts), Curiosity Stream, Qello Concerts, FlixFling (Cinefest, Nature Vision, Warriors and Gangsters, Dox, Monsters and Nightmares), BroadbandTV (Hooplakidz Plus), DEFY Media (ScreenJunkies Plus), Gravitas (Film Forum, Daring Docs, Fear Factory), and Ring TV Boxing.
