Amazon Prime Video app launching on Fetch

Fetch TV and Amazon today announced that the Amazon Prime Video app is launching on Fetch tomorrow. The Amazon Prime Video app will roll out to Fetch Mighty boxes over a 2-week period, commencing Tuesday. Subscribers with a Fetch Mini box are expected to receive the Amazon Prime Video app in the next release, currently scheduled for the end June.

Fetch households with Amazon Prime memberships will have access to exciting Amazon Original series including The Test: A New Era for Australia’s Team, featuring the Australian Men’s Cricket Team and Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan. Plus, Emmy and Golden Globe nominated series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Fleabag, The Man in the High Castle, and Good Omens. Fetch customers can also stream thousands of popular TV shows and hit movies, with the Amazon Prime Video app. This includes the new Australian Amazon Original stand-up specials exclusively available now on Amazon Prime Video, with two specials being released each week over a five-week period.

“Fetch has enjoyed tremendous success by making good on the simple proposition of ‘All your entertainment in one easy place’ said Scott Lorson, CEO of Fetch TV. “Today represents another win for Fetch subscribers, with the highly anticipated addition of the Amazon Prime Video app.”

“We expect strong take up of the Amazon Prime Video service on Fetch. Australian households are, more than ever, looking for quality home entertainment options as they bunker down and practice social distancing.”

Prime members have access to thousands of movies and TV shows, more than two million songs and thousands of stations and playlists ad-free on Amazon Music, access to over 1,000 e-books with Prime Reading, benefits for gamers with Twitch Prime, access to discounted priority delivery and more.

Current Amazon Prime members simply enter their existing Username and Password to access the Amazon Prime Video app on Fetch. Fetch subscribers that are not currently Prime members can follow the easy on-screen instructions to sign up and start their Prime 30-day free trial. Thereafter, Prime membership is available for either AUD$6.99 a month or AUD$59 a year.
