Prime Video customers can add the Marquee TV Channel to access new works and classic productions from major artists and arts companies from around the globe
Marquee TV, the specialty streaming service for arts and culture, announced its U.S. launch on Amazon’s Prime Video Channels, the premier destination for third-party networks and streaming channels subscriptions. With this news, Marquee TV becomes the first and only Prime Video Channel dedicated exclusively to multi-genre performing arts.
“By joining Prime Video Channels, Marquee TV is making it easier and more affordable than ever to experience the best in arts and culture, from the comfort of your couch. Marquee TV’s mission is to democratize access to the performing arts and its sheer scale makes Prime Video Channels a perfect partner,” remarked Marquee TV co-founder and chief executive Simon Walker.
Launched in 2018 and dubbed “Netflix for the Arts,” Marquee TV is already the world’s leading performing arts streaming service and the only streamer to offer premium, multi-genre content from the world’s leading companies, including Royal Shakespeare Company, Teatro alla Scala, the London Symphony Orchestra, New York City Ballet and more. Nowhere else–in person or online–can arts lovers access a wide array of beloved classics, such as Swan Lake, Carmen and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5, while also taking in new and cutting-edge features, including the largest collection of contemporary dance anywhere and a full digital season, including world premieres, from the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
During the global pandemic, Marquee TV established itself as the must-have app for culture fans and the go-to partner for arts organizations looking to connect with audiences online. Research shows that 60% of arts audiences have acquired the habit of watching performances online, and of those, 90% are continuing to watch online even as the live sector re-opens.
