UK stand-up comedy subscription video-on-demand service NextUp has launched on the Amazon Fire TV Stick platform.
NextUp said further launched would come later this year.
The service features over 85 full-length comedy specials, including content from established comedians such as Richard Herring and Tommy Tiernan as well as new talent such as Rachel Parris and Jordan Brookes, for £3.50 (€4) a month.
Last year, NextUp launched on Amazon Channels in the UK.
The service grew out of the ComComedy YouTube channel and live comedy night and was co-founded by former director of comedy at BBC Worldwide, Stuart Snaith.
Dan Berg, another co-founder of the service, said: “We want to share the work of great comedians far and wide and our launch on Amazon Fire TV Stick is a significant step for us, allowing more people to access NextUp in a way that’s convenient for them. We’ve got even more device launches in the pipeline and more great specials to release this coming year – watch this space.”
