Amazon Prime Instant Video launches in the UK tomorrow with Alpha House
Amazon Prime Instant Video will launch in the UK tomorrow, replacing the LoveFilm Instant streaming service.
The new Amazon Prime Instant Video, available in the UK tomorrow February 26, combines LoveFilm Instant and Prime Instant Video into one subscription service.
The change was announced earlier this month, much to the shock of existing Amazon Prime and Lovefilm subscribers.
In order to access the service’s 15,000 strong content library of TV shows and movies, you’ll need to subscribe to Amazon Prime for £79 per year, or if you buy now you can get it for £49 until tomorrow.
To celebrate the new Amazon Prime Instant Video service, Amazon is releasing its first original series Alpha House on February 26, starring John Goodman.
All 11 episodes of Alpha will be available tomorrow to binge watch at your leisure.
“Prime Instant Video is the UK’s largest movie and TV subscription streaming service with more than 15,000 great movies and TV episodes for our customers to enjoy,” said Tim Leslie, VP of Amazon Instant Video in the UK and Germany. “The talent behind Alpha House is incredible and as the first full series to come through Amazon Studios we can’t wait to hear what our viewers think to the show – especially considering the overwhelming positive reaction to the pilot.”
You can still subscribe to Prime Instant Video on its own for £5.99 if you’re not interested in next-day Amazon deliveries.
Lovefilm as a brand will still exist to offer a DVD and Blu-Ray rental service, but Lovefilm Instant is gone for good.
