Amazon continues MGM+ international expansion with Lionsgate deal in the UK

Starz’s Outlander

Amazon-owned streaming service MGM+ has struck a strategic deal that will deliver Lionsgate and Starz content to customers in the UK.

The agreement comes after MGM+ closed similar content deals with Lionsgate for Europe and Latin America.

Lionsgate+ subscribers who joined via Prime Video Channels in the UK will now get access to the MGM service beginning in April.

In May, that service will be rebranded to MGM+ in the UK to align with the recent rebrand that occurred in Europe, Latin America and the US.

MGM+ in the UK will become the exclusive home to some of Starz’s first-run TV series, including the complete Outlander franchise, Power, BMF, The Serpent Queen, P-Valley and Hightown.

Additionally, the MGM+ will become the home to classic series including The Great, Mad Men, Nashville and Weeds, as well as movies American Psycho, Reservoir Dogs and Saw.

Josh McIvor, global general manager at MGM+, said: “The expansion of MGM+ in the United Kingdom further cements Amazon’s commitment to invest in and grow the MGM+ channel internationally, while enhancing the content offering available to subscribers.”

Michael Katzer, head of MGM+ International, added: “The addition of premium first-run TV franchises such as Outlander and Power, along with many blockbuster hit movies, will allow MGM+ to continue its evolution as a premium international streaming service.”
