Today Roku UK has announced the arrival of support for the popular Amazon Prime Instant Video streaming service. Allowing those that own a Roku set-top box in the UK to enjoy the wealth of TV series content and movies provided by the Amazon media network.
Unfortunately the 4K Ultra HD Roku 4 set-top box has still yet to make an appearance in the UK but until it arrives you can now enjoy Amazon Prime content directly from your Roku box.
Even if you do not have a paid Amazon Prime Instant Video subscription you can still benefit from the movies and TV series that are available for rental and purchase via the Amazon Instant service. Ed Lee, vice president of content acquisition at Roku explains :
Amazon Video is one of the most popular streaming services among British consumers and we are delighted to make it available to our UK customers. With the addition of Amazon Video in the UK we now have the most comprehensive streaming channel line-up among major video streaming services and catch-up TV channels.
Our aim is to make Amazon Video available on all popular connected devices so our customers can access the blockbuster TV shows and movies only available as part of Prime.
