The Amazon Prime Video app is now available on Ignite TV, Rogers confirms, joining other popular streaming apps, including Netflix and YouTube.
"With the introduction of the Amazon Prime Video app, Ignite bundle customers will be able to access an even wider selection of popular TV shows and movies," says Eric Bruno, Senior Vice President, 5G, Content and Connected Home Products at Rogers. "This is only the beginning as we continue to expand our content offerings and provide a premium entertainment experience with more choice and convenience than ever before."
Prime Video subscribers with Ignite TV can quickly find their favourite Amazon Original series, popular TV shows and movies without having to switch among apps. And they can use voice to do it as well. Say "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" into the voice remote to catch up on all the latest episodes. Or say "John Krasinski" and see the actor's filmography across Netflix, On Demand, Live TV and now Prime Video, including action drama Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan.
"Our goal has always been to provide Prime members with access to content they want to watch, how they want to watch it," adds Andrew Bennett, Director of Worldwide Business Development for Amazon Prime Video. "By making the Prime Video app available via Ignite TV, we are helping to do just that. Watching Amazon Originals is now easier than ever for Prime members and we are excited to be working with Ignite TV to provide more options for our customers."
To access Amazon Prime Video on an Ignite TV set-top box, customers need an active Prime membership. Visit Amazon.ca to sign up for Prime. The Prime Video app on Ignite TV will offer full access to the Prime Video catalogue, including the latest Amazon Original series.
Several Ignite bundles are available, including Ignite TV, Ignite Internet, and Ignite Home Phone.
