Amazon has struck a deal that will see premium Lionsgate and Starz programming made available to to MGM+ customers in the U.K.

Lionsgate+ subscribers who joined via Prime Video Channels in the U.K. will now get access to the MGM service beginning in April. In May, the MGM service will be rebranded to MGM+ in the U.K. to align with the recent rebrand that occurred in Europe, Latin America and the U.S.

MGM+ in the U.K. will host several popular Starz series, including the complete “Outlander” franchise, “Power Book” seasons 1-4, “BMF,” “The Serpent Queen,” “P-Valley” and “Hightown.” The service will become the home to hit series, including library titles “The Great,” “Mad Men,” “Nashville” and “Weeds” and films “American Psycho,” “Reservoir Dogs” and the “Saw” franchise.

This is the third instalment in a series of content deals that MGM+ previously closed with Lionsgate for Europe and Latin America. MGM+ is now available in 31 countries and is one of the most subscribed Prime Video Channels globally.

Josh McIvor, global general manager, 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.”

“We are pleased to extend our partnership with MGM+ to bring beloved films and television series to the service in the United Kingdom,” said Agapy Kapouranis, Lionsgate president of international television and digital distribution. “With the addition of the United Kingdom, Lionsgate and STARZ content will now be available to MGM+ viewers in more than 20 countries around the world.”

Chase Brisbin and Kathryn Ikenberry Jones negotiated the deal on behalf of Lionsgate.
