Telstra has partnered with Amazon to deliver the Prime Video app to Telstra TV, with Amazon Prime members in Australia now able to watch popular TV shows and movies via the Prime Video app on Telstra TV.

Telstra Media Executive, Product & Technology, Rebecca Haagsma, said in a blog published on the Telstra website that new content would be added each month to Prime Video ensuring users always have “fresh and exciting entertainment available including cult favourites like the high-stakes space drama The Expanse and new Amazon Original series like Hanna”.

“Prime Video also lets you stream or download eligible content to your compatible tablet or smartphone, so you can keep watching when you’re on the go and away from your Telstra TV. Prime Video is part of Amazon Prime, which you can try with a 30-day trial and thereafter either A$6.99 a month or A$59 a year,” she said.

“In addition to Prime Video, Prime membership also includes delivery in as fast as two days on eligible items from Amazon, free international delivery on eligible global store items over $49, as well as access to more than two million songs and thousands of stations and playlists ad-free on Amazon Music, access to over 1000 e-books with Prime Reading, benefits for gamers with Twitch Prime and more.

“You’ll be able to find and download the Prime Video app in the ‘Apps’ section of your Telstra TV from 23 April. The Prime Video app joins the many other apps and services available on Telstra TV, including our other new additions – like Kayo sports streaming, live radio stations through iHeartRadio, and movies and documentaries from Plex and Kanopy – that make it the centre of your living room.

“Our latest Telstra TV now comes with a bundled Wi-Fi voice-enabled remote, making searching for anything simple and easy with our universal search function.”

According to Haagsma, since launching the original Roku-powered box back in 2015, the telco has delivered over 1.4 million Telstra TVs into Aussie homes, “bringing together free-to-air TV, catch-up and on-demand subscription services in one place”.
