KPN makes it simpler to watch Amazon Prime Video by integrating it in the TV menu

KPN adds Amazon Prime Video to its Interactive TV menu. This makes KPN’s Interactive TV the first television service in the Netherlands that enables viewers to watch Amazon Prime Video directly from the TV menu. So KPN iTV customers get even easier access to thousands of movies and TV series, including acclaimed Amazon Originals such as Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan, Modern Love, The Boys, and The Grand Tour.

Customers who have or who purchase a subscription to Amazon Prime Video get direct access to Prime Video via the TV menu by entering their account details. From today, KPN will make the service available step by step, including to Telfort and XS4ALL TV customers. In December, KPN will make the Prime Video app available to all existing iTV customers (with DTV receiver models 2260 and 2952). The Prime Video service can also be used in 2020 via the new DTV receiver that KPN launched in October 2019.

“The user experience of our customers is paramount: they want easy access to the entertainment and content they enjoy. We are facilitating this by adding the Amazon Prime Video application to KPN’s interactive TV menu,” says Stijn Nuijten, responsible for marketing and products at KPN.

"We are always on the lookout for ways of making Amazon Prime Video available in a simple way to our customers", adds Brett Ballbach, business development director of Amazon Prime Video EU. “It’s great that we can now offer KPN customers our wide selection of movies and TV shows more easily via the Prime Video app. This allows Prime members to enjoy Amazon Originals such as The Grand Tour, Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan, and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.”

How does it work?
To watch Prime Video via KPN, customers need KPN’s Interactive TV, the right DTV receiver (2260 and 2952) and Amazon Prime membership. Customers can register on kpn.com/televisie/amazon. They can then log in on the Prime Video app via the DTV receiver. This is possible in three ways: via channel 203, On Demand or Apps op TV.

Convenience and freedom of choice with KPN
By launching the Prime Video app, KPN is offering its customers even more freedom of choice in entertainment. The app gives access to award-winning movies and TV shows, including Amazon Originals in HD. KPN makes things as simple as possible for its customers and this new service fits into KPN’s strategy of offering customers the best TV experience. KPN is able to achieve this by continually improving the product and by constantly updating the TV content offered by content providers.
