35% INCREASE IN VIEWERS IN 1 YEAR
Amazon & Netflix programmes now winning EMMYs & Golden Globes
You are free to go ahead and blow over a £million on an advertising budget if you want to go on an established TV network that’s been around for over 50 years. But remember this, both Amazon & Netflix are now producing their own TV series and winning EMMY awards & Golden Globes for them. Amazon has commissioned 36 episodes over a three year period of the new ‘Grand Tour’ series with Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond & James May……I’d say it’s a safe bet Amazon Prime TV can now be considered a major global TV channel. Amazon Prime has experienced a 35% increase in viewers in the one year leading up to June 2016. That household penetration figure is not going to go down and only set to rise.
Most modern smart TVs including those from Samsung, Sony, Panasonic and LG will come with the Amazon app pre-installed but older sets won't feature this option. Viewers are still able to tune in and watch the TV through the internet or by purchasing an Amazon Fire Stick. The free Amazon app can also be downloaded on to any Android or iOS device including the iPhone and iPad plus Sony's PS4, PS3 and Xbox consoles are also compatible.
