Amazon Prime Video today announced the launch of the Prime Video Store in Mexico, a TVOD platform that allows Amazon customers to buy or rent movies. The platform’s arrival at Mexico took place shortly after its launch in Spain, France, Italy, Canada and Australia. The Prime Video Store joins Amazon’s SVOD OTT and its Prime Video Channels.
Movies to rent or buy at the Prime Video Store will come from major US studios, including productions from Disney, Warner Bros., NBCUniversal, Sony, Paramount, and Lionsgate, with recent titles like ‘Mission Impossible: Fallout’; ‘Deadpool 2’ and ‘Rocketman’, based on musician Elton John’s life. Local Mexican studios, such as Videocine, will also have titles available on the Prime Video Store, including ‘Conoces a Tomas’, ‘Tod@s Caen’ and ‘Chicuarotes’, all available on launch day. All Amazon customers can buy or rent titles in the Prime Video Store through primevideo.com.mx and the Prime Video application, available on smart TVs, Android mobile devices, video game consoles and the Amazon Fire TV Stick.
‘We have noticed how much our customers enjoy the wide selection of new movie releases available to rent or buy from the Prime Video Store in the US, UK, Germany and Japan, so we are delighted to launch the service in Mexico today’, said Mike Hopkins, SVP Amazon Prime Video & Amazon Studios. ‘The Prime Video Store brings all new releases and successful movies to Amazon customers, available to rent or buy, from top US and local studios, adding to the wide range of entertainment already available through Prime Video with a Prime membership’, he added.
