Every month we have new releases on Amazon. This makes us always have good movies and some of the best series on Prime Video. However, we are quite clear that the future of this video platform is also in pay per view or purchase of content, but also in linear channels with live broadcast. There are already several countries in which the latter service is offered. In addition, Amazon Prime Video now includes 38 free TV channels in Germany. Will all this come to Spain?
Throughout last year, the so-called Prime Video Channels began to land in different countries. In each of them they are offered differently and have a varied type of content. In Mexico we have HBO, STARZPLAY, Paramount +, MGM, TV Azteca, Acortn TV, Pongalo, Noggin, CBeebies and Love Nature. In the United Kingdom or Germany, there is the possibility of having Eurosport, Discovery Channel or the like. However, in all cases we talk about payment channels.
Free tv channels on Amazon Prime Video
For this reason, the news that we present below is quite interesting. In Germany, the video-on-demand platform has included a total of 38 television channels completely free of charge. Prime Video customers in this country do not have to pay anything more to access them. Of the channels, 28 of them are in high definition and are owned by ARD and ZDF.
The complete list of channels includes:
- Das Erste
- ZDF ART
- BR Fernsehen
- NDR Fernsehen
WDR Fernsehen Aachen, WDR Fernsehen Bielefeld, WDR Fernsehen Bonn, WDR Fernsehen Dortmund, WDR Fernsehen Düsseldorf, WDR Fernsehen Duisburg, WDR Fernsehen Essen, WDR Fernsehen Münster, WDR Fernsehen Siegen and WDR Fernsehen Wuppertal.
Will it arrive in Spain?
Well, logic tells us that it should be the next step for Amazon Prime Video in our country. After incorporating paid channels and free channels in various countries, it doesn’t make much sense that they don’t do it in our market. In fact, Spain is one of the priority markets for the Internet giant both in Europe and around the world.
For the moment, the possibility of buying movies within Amazon Prime Video has arrived in our country. In the new Shop section we can rent or buy movies with different prices depending on the title. For example, buying Frozen II in HD will cost us 13.99 euros, while Forrest Gump can be rented for 3.99 euros or bought for 7.99 euros.
