Amazon Adds Seeso to Subscription Mix

Amazon Video said Seeso, NBCUniversal’s subscription OTT comedy service, is now available to Prime members for an additional $3.99 per month.

Seeso announced last month that it would become part of the Amazon mix in the “coming weeks."  Seeso launched on January 7 and has not released viewership numbers, but the Amazon deal will open up a new way to acquire subscribers.

Seeso is one of a growing number of OTT providers to join Amazon’s Streaming Partners Program, a service launched late last year that handles elements such as subscriber acquisition, billing (using the subscriber’s credit cards that are on file with Amazon), customer service, content delivery via Amazon’s streaming infrastructure, and device compatibility management.

Seeso will compete with other comedy-focused offerings available via Amazon Prime, including Comedy Central Stand-Up Plus and Comedy Dynamics, which each cost $3.99 per month.

Other Amazon streaming partners include Showtime, Starz, Acorn TV, CuriosityStream, DramaFever, Shudder, Urban Movie Channel, and FlixFling, among others.
