Amazon Channels adds Discovery Channel

Discovery Channel, Discovery Communication’s premium pay TV brand, is set to become available on Amazon Channels in Germany and Austria.

The launch of Discovery Channel on the service extends the partnership between Amazon and Discovery, which launched Eurosport Player on Amazon Channels earlier this year.

Amazon customers with an active Prime membership in Germany and Austria can now access Discovery Channel through live streams of the linear TV channel as well as catch up and VOD content.

These new premium additions to Amazon Channels are available via the Prime Video App on Smart TVs, mobile iOS and Android devices and Fire tablets as well as on Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick, or through amazon.de/channels at €3.99 a month.

“With a 30-year pedigree of telling great stories about the world, Discovery Channel has superfans around the globe who love its immersive factual content.”

Mirjam Laux, general manager for Amazon Channels Germany and Austria, said: “With Discovery Channel being available at Amazon Channels, we are excited to offer customers yet another premium-brand. Whether the depths of space, the icy expanses of Alaska or exciting moments in South America – there’s something for every documentary fan on Discovery Channel.”

Amazon launched its Amazon Channels offering in the UK, Germany and Austria this May, allowing Prime users to add live and on-demand TV as part of their subscription package.
