Amazon Prime members can now add a number of subscription video services to their Prime memberships, including Shudder. While most of us already have a subscription, this means that devices that have an Amazon Video app will now have Shudder content available… as long as you subscribe through Amazon Prime. Despite the little caveat, this is exciting news for Shudder and should allow them to reach a wider audience. It also opens up a new way to view content, which is always a good thing.
Initial launch partners include: SHOWTIME, STARZ, A+E Network (Lifetime Movie Club), AMC (Shudder and SundanceNow Doc Club), Gaia, RLJ Entertainment (Acorn TV, Urban Movie Channel, Acacia TV), DramaFever (DramaFever Instant), Tribeca Shortlist, Cinedigm (Dove Channel, Docurama, CONtv), Smithsonian (Smithsonian Earth), IndieFlix (IndieFlix Shorts), Curiosity Stream, Qello Concerts, FlixFling (Cinefest, Nature Vision, Warriors and Gangsters, Dox, Monsters and Nightmares), BroadbandTV (Hooplakidz Plus), DEFY Media (ScreenJunkies Plus), Gravitas (Film Forum, Daring Docs, Fear Factory), and Ring TV Boxing.
