Amazon Prime Video To Offer Free Streaming For Kids Content During South Africa’s COVID-19 Lockdown

With millions of children worldwide sitting at home during the growing coronavirus pandemic, Amazon has announced that it will play its part by making its kids content including series and movies available for free on its global streaming service, including South Africa.

This comes just after MultiChoice last week opened up access to selected TV news channels and some others, including library content, for free on its DStv Now streaming service to all DStv subscribers.

Amazon has followed suit by making children’s shows accessible for free viewing and has also created a link for parents to access the content.

Most of the content is aimed at preschool and primary school children.

Amazon subscribers around the globe can now watch Amazon Studios original series like Pete the Cat, Lost in Oz, The Dangerous Book for Boys, Costume Quest, Bug Diaries, Tumble Leaf, Creative Galaxy, Wishenpoof, Jessy & Nessy, Annedroids, as well as outside produced favourites like Peppa Pig and many other titles.

Amazon warned that some titles wouldn’t be available in South Africa because of existing rights and exclusion specifications.
