Curzon Channel launches on Amazon Prime Video Channels

Curzon Cinemas has launched its own streaming channel on Amazon’s Prime Video Channels.
Amazon’s VOD platform allows Amazon Prime members to add other streaming services to their account as bolt-on subscriptions – not unlike the way that Netflix is available through Sky or Virgin Media. More than 70 channels are available as add-ons in the UK, including Shudder, MUBI, BritBox, the Icon Film Channel and STARZPLAY, enabling these extra subscriptions to be managed and paid through one Amazon account, without needing to sign up to another bundle or contract – and watched via the Amazon Prime Video app.
Now, Curzon, which has its own transactional streaming service Curzon Home Cinema, has joined the line-up, with its own Curzon Channel hosting films from its own extensive library. The launch comes after Curzon ended its previous subscription plan, Curzon12, which launched in 2017 and made 12 titles available to stream online free of charge to Curzon members via Curzon Home Cinema.
The Curzon Channel collection includes Denis Villeneuve’s Enemy, Gaspar Noe’s Love Lars Von Trier’s Melancholia and Antichrist, Yorgos Lanthimos’ Killing of the Sacred Deer, Blue is the Warmest Colour, We Need To Talk About Kevin, The Piano Teacher, The Killing of a Sacred Deer, Funny Games, Quartet, Three Colours Blue, Three Colours Red, Three Colours White, 2016’s Mustang, Andrea Arnold’s Wuthering Heights and Fish Tank, Charlie Chaplin’s The Great Dictator, The Gold Rush and Modern Times, Belleville Rendez-vous, Winter’s Bone, Clouds of Sils Maria, Jeune Femme, Stories We Tell, Fire at Sea, Ginger and Rosa, A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence, What Maisie Knew, Timbuktu and Lilting.
The service costs £6.99 a month, in addition to an Amazon Prime membership (£7.99 a month or £79.99 a year), with a 7-day free trial available for new subscribers.
