What makes Amazon Video Direct different?

For each title, you can choose to earn royalties based on hours streamed by Prime members, a revenue share for rentals, purchases, monthly subscriptions, or ad impressions--or any combination of these options.

Make your titles available anywhere Amazon Video is available--U.S., Germany, Austria, UK and Japan--on all supported devices--Fire TV, phones, tablets, game consoles, Smart TVs and from the Web.

With performance metrics such as minutes streamed, number of subscribers, projected revenue, and payment history, you can optimize the way you offer and promote your titles.

How it works
Amazon will distribute a share of $1,000,000 per month as a bonus to the Top 100 titles included with Prime through Amazon Video Direct. This bonus--based on global customer engagement--is incremental to revenue earned from hours streamed, rentals, purchases, monthly subscriptions, and ad impressions. All of your titles included with Prime are automatically eligible.
