NextUp launches on Amazon Fire TV Stick

UK stand-up comedy subscription video-on-demand service NextUp has launched on the Amazon Fire TV Stick platform.

The launch means that the full leist of devices on which NextUp is available includes the web, iOS, Android, Apple TV, Amazon Channels and Amazon Fire TV Stick.

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.”
