Amazon Prime Video Adds HBO Content, Warner Bros. Films and ‘Sesame Street’ Episodes to Platform for Free
Just weeks after taking down their paywall and granting access to dozens of children’s shows, Amazon Prime Video is once again adding on to free content accessible to their customers. According to Variety, the streamer is adding HBO original series, Warner Bros. movies and 20 “Sesame Street” episodes to their platform for free.
The company struck a deal with HBO and now Amazon account holders in the U.S. can stream all episodes of HBO’s “Big Little Lies,” “Barry,” “Ballers,” “Silicon Valley” and “Succession. The list of Warner Bros. movies includes “The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part,” “Pokémon Detective Pikachu” and “Smallfoot.” In addition, select recent episodes of “Sesame Street” will also be made available.
Prime Video added CBSN — the 24-hour digital news channel from CBS News — available for free to U.S. Amazon account holders. Amazon Prime Video will also be one of the services offering a free live-stream of Global Citizen and WHO’s celeb-studded “One World: Together at Home,” taking place on Saturday, April 18, at 2 p.m. ET.
In March, Amazon gave access to children’s content that was previously exclusive to Prime Video customers, including Amazon original series “Just Add Magic,” “Pete the Cat” and “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie.” Select seasons of PBS Kids shows such as “Arthur,” “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood,” “Odd Squad” and “Wild Kratts” are also available, and in Europe, third-party content includes “Peppa Pig” and “Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom.”
The company has also unleashed a host of movies on the ad-supported IMDb TV, which includes “Shrek Forever After,” “Scooby-Doo: The Movie,” “Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed,” “Stuart Little,” “Stuart Little 2,” “Short Circuit,” just to name a few.
