PARIS -- Altice Europe, a convergent leader in telecoms, content, media, entertainment and advertising, today announced a collaboration with Amazon Prime Video to make the best content and viewing experience available to its SFR customers in France.

SFR will be the first of Altice operations and the first operator in France to announce the Prime Video app within its LaBox SFR Fibre, SFR Box Plus and SFR Box 8 set-top boxes. The launch adds award-winning and critically acclaimed Amazon Originals The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Good Omens, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, The Grand Tour, The Boys, The Man in the High Castle, American Gods and the highly-anticipated Carnival Row, an American neo-noir fantasy web television series with Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne launching this fall. SFR customers will also have access to local Originals like Jérôme Commandeur: Tout en douceur and Raphael Varane: Destin de Champion, and popular French and Hollywood movies.

A large selection of titles on Prime Video are available in Ultra High Definition (UHD) and HDR.

The deal further enhances Altice’s strategy to combine the very best over-the-top online video apps and offerings from major streaming players, with its own world-class content and TV functionality, in a seamlessly-integrated experience. Customers can search, access and enjoy the top movies and series they love with the convenience and flexibility of a single platform – powered by ultrafast broadband networks that enable high-quality, buffer-free viewing. This launch will come right after the launch of Amazon Alexa within SFR Box 8 and will be fully integrated.
