Roku has announced that Amazon Prime Video is now available on Roku devices in Canada.
“Prime Video offers consumers access to an exciting entertainment selection that can be streamed in HD and beautiful 4K HDR image quality,” said Tedd Cittadine, vice president of content distribution at Roku. “Prime Video is a very popular entertainment destination on our platform in the US and UK, and we expect it to be a hit in Canada.”
Previously, if you wanted to watch Prime Video on your Roku, you could only do so in the US but now that’s not the case.
“Our focus with Prime Video has always been to provide great content for our customers around the world. Part of that lies in making movies, TV shows and Prime Original series like Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan easily accessible and simple to find,” said Tim Leslie, Vice President, Prime Video International at Amazon. “As we expand access to Prime Video on the Roku platform around the world, we look forward to making our service available on new devices for customers around the world.
Prime Video is compatible with the following devices, Roku 2 (except for models 2720x and 27020EU), Roku 3 (except for model 4230x), Roku Express, Roku Express+, Roku Streaming Stick (except for models 3400x, 3500x and 3500EU), Roku Streaming Stick+, Roku Premiere, Roku Premiere+, Roku Ultra and Roku TVs.
You can add Prime Video to your Roku device here and once you sign in and add the channel. Make sure to go to your device and check for system update so the app gets added.
