TIM and Amazon have reached an agreement to launch Prime Video - Amazon’s premium subscription streaming service - on TIMVISION’s TIM Box decoder.
A move that further boosts TIM’s content offer with additional premium shows available via the TIM Box decoder, bringing viewers a unique digital entertainment experience. In addition to the TIMVISION programming, the decoder brings to your TV Netflix originals, DAZN, Eurosport and TIMGAMES’ offer. The Android TV operating system also allows access to the Google Play App world.
Starting today, Prime Video will bring exclusive and award-winning Prime Originals to the TIM Box for all TIMVISION customers subscribed to Amazon Prime, at no additional cost to their Prime membership. Content includes the second season of the “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”, “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan”, “The Grand Tour” and Prime Original “Homecoming” TV series starring Julia Roberts. Easy access to the Prime Video catalogue will be granted by the TIM Box “search and recommendations” options, with a selection of Prime Original series available directly on the TIMVISION catalogue.
“This agreement once again confirms our will to strengthen TIMVISION’s offer. We are the streaming platform with the widest-ranging library and we intend to pursue more and more alliances with the market’s key players. Today we add further value to our programming by adding the contents of Amazon Prime Video to the major sports events, the exclusive previews, movies and TV series that are already available on TIMVISION. Enjoying the most popular programs is made even easier for our customers” – comments Daniela Biscarini, Head of Multimedia Entertainment & Consumer Digital Services at TIM.
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; Prime Video is already available on thousands of devices, from Smart TVs, to games consoles, to tablets and mobile devices. We’re delighted to add to that range TIMVISION’S TIM Box decoder. We think Prime members are going to love the opportunity to stream their favourite Prime Original and exclusive shows on the device.”
