Altice USA (NYSE:ATUS) plans to launch Amazon Prime Video on the Altice One entertainment and connectivity platform, providing access to the entire Prime Video catalog, including Amazon Originals, to Altice's Optimum and Suddenlink customers across the country.
Altice One combines 4K video, broadband, WiFi, and voice capabilities into a home hub with a personalized user interface (UI), integrated access to streaming apps, and search via a Bluetooth voice-activated remote control.
The Prime Video app will be available directly on Altice One and alongside a user's live, on-demand, and streaming video services included with Altice One. Additionally, the Prime Video content will be accessible via the Altice One voice-activated remote control.
The integration of Prime Video is the latest upgrade to Altice One. Other recent new features and functionalities include a sports hub and a refreshed home screen for faster navigation.
Earlier this summer, Amazon and Altice USA partnered on Altice Amplify, a home speaker that features audio from Devialet and Amazon Alexa Built-in for smart home control, including control of Altice One.
"We are excited to bring Amazon Prime Video to the Altice One experience as we continue to provide our customers with the high-quality content they want, right at their fingertips," said Hakim Boubazine, Altice USA co-president and chief operating officer. "From Altice One to Altice Amplify, we are simplifying the entertainment and connectivity experience for our customers to bring them the content and features that matter most to them, all in one place."
"Prime Video is committed to making streaming on demand and live entertainment as convenient as possible for our customers," said Andrew Bennett, head of Worldwide Business Development for Prime Video. "We are excited to work with Altice to give Prime members another convenient way to access their favorite Amazon Originals, purchase new-release shows and movies, or customize their entertainment lineup with Prime Video Channels."
