The move sees BT TV provide football fans with a one-stop-shop to access all the 2019/20 Premier League action via BT Sport, Sky Sports and Amazon Prime Video.

BT is First Major UK TV Provider to Integrate Amazon Prime Video on Set Top Boxes

BT has become the first major UK pay-TV provider to have a set top box which has access to Amazon Prime Video – this results in customers having thousands of TV series and films at one push of a button. This step is part of BT’s goal to offer BT TV customers with unrivalled choice through partnerships with the world’s best content providers. The move also means BT TV customers will be able to access every Premier League match from the 2019/20 season, with customers able to sign-up for Amazon Prime as well as BT Sport and Sky Sports through their set top box.

Tony Singh, content and business development director for BT’s Consumer division, said: “We’re delighted to be the first UK pay-TV service to offer Amazon Prime Video content to our customers. BT TV gives our customers the flexibility they want to watch all their favourite shows – and of course all the sport – in one place and on one bill. Our ambition is to offer an unrivalled choice of TV content for our customers by partnering with the very best providers, with Prime Video joining a brilliant line-up including BT Sport, Netflix, NOW TV, BBC iPlayer.”

Brett Ballbach, Business Development Director for Prime Video Europe, added: “We want Prime members to be able to watch all their favourite content when they want, on any device they want, and Prime Video is already available on thousands of devices, from Smart TVs to games consoles to tablets & mobile devices. We’re delighted to add to that range of devices with Prime Video now available to access via BT TV set top boxes – we think customers are going to love the opportunity to stream their favourite Prime Original shows and Prime exclusive sports on the device.”
