Hi @btree+mike

Afraid that there is no indication from Sky that this is likely to happen anytime soon unfortunately.

Hi @btree+mike We requested Netflix, we got Netflix hopefully one day we will get Amazon Prime as well. Only time will tell.

So you expect to get Sky Box Sets, Netflix and Prime for £10 /mth? Isn't that a tad unrealistic?

@Chrisee yep I'd say that's very unrealistic now £15 to £20 maybe more like it

Netflix are entirely reliant on streaming subscribers, and I suspect would do a deal with anyone who might deliver eyeballs. Amazon are something like fifteen times bigger than Netflix and are highly diversified: Prime Video is a tiny part of the Bezos empire  and really only exists as a legacy of LoveFilm. Amazon  don't need to deal with anyone unless it's absolutely on their terms.

Re: Amazon prime app add it please

 

  Just want to watch the grand tour 😊

 

was not looking to get Netflix and prime just prime on my telly I will probably bite the bullet and get a firestick and subscribe directly with amazon but would be nice to watch through the same box..

 

Would have thought it would be financially viable for both parties as sky could skim from the top of subscriptions watched through its device and Amazon would win more subscribers albeit at a cheaper rate..

 

But I'm no businessman lol..

Re: Amazon prime app add it please

Netflix and Amazon are completely different propositions in the case of Sky - Netflix is pure video and is overall has a distinctive catalogue to Sky - therefore formulating and retailing that deal works for both parties as they’re not really stepping on each other’s toes... they can retail together and shore up their subscription base.

 

Amazon and Sky however compete in a number of areas in the U.K. - Streaming devices, transactional video and disc sales. OTT video, ‘channels’ as Amazon are now providing more than just Prime Video and now sports. I don’t consider it an impossibility but any Sky/Amazon deal would require a significant amount of reciprocation and not just letting Sky skim a few quid off the top.

@Plektrum that is true and I can understand where you are coming from but Sky have managed to get an agreement with BT from sometime next year

Absolutely and again that reinforces what I said as the Sky/BT tie-up is wholly reciprocal- both parties are getting something out of the deal as per this article

I would imagine a Sky and Amazon tie up would see both parties getting something out of any deal.

I think the disappearance of the 'Amazon' button from current TV remote handsets, and the ubiquity of the one for Netflix, is indicative of who is more desperate for viewers.  For most Amazon subscribers (apart from old-school Top Gear fans, perhaps), Prime Video is just a side-effect of having Prime for deliveries, and adding it to a Sky platform (particularly with billing and UI integration on the Netflix model) would be a significant technical challenge for Amazon with no gain on their bottom line.

I wholly agree - Amazon don’t get much out of it when they can just as easily sell their own Fire Device and Sky adding an app doesn’t really offer anything for them if they’re not getting a cut of that Prime membership.
