Amazon Prime on Sky is one of the latest services provided by Sky. This article explores how to get Amazon Prime on Sky and what devices Sky users can access it on.
Can you get Amazon Prime on Sky?
Sky has agreed to offer the Amazon Prime Video streaming service to millions of customers across Europe. As part of their TV service, customers will now have access to programs ranging from superhero drama The Boys to Premier League football.
Due to the pan-European agreement, Amazon Prime on Sky will be available in the UK, Ireland, Austria, Germany, and Italy through Sky. This means Sky has agreements with the top three streaming services.
The new agreement will make Amazon's Fire TV set-top boxes and plug-in sticks compatible with Sky's streaming service, Now TV.
In contrast to Netflix, you cannot include Amazon Prime Video as part of your Sky TV package. Therefore, to access the content offered by Amazon Prime, you'll need to sign up for it independently. Although it may seem tedious or drawn out, signing up for an Amazon account and using your Sky Box to access the entertainment is generally rather straightforward.
Is Amazon Prime free on Sky?
Amazon Prime is not free on Sky. Users will need to have a separate Amazon Prime or Prime video subscription.
