PBS Distribution has struck a deal with Walter Presents to bring more than 300 hours of international drama to PBS Masterpiece on Amazon Prime, with selected titles also set to broadcast on PBS and stream on PBS Passport.
Launching on 19th October, US subscribers can access the Amazon channel for $5.99 per month after a seven-day free trial, and confirmed titles include Danish crime thriller Norskov, alongside Belgian dramas Professor T and 13 Commandments.
Andrea Downing, co-president of PBS Distribution, said: “Expanding our Prime Video Channel to include the best of foreign-language dramas is a natural fit, giving our subscribers access to premium international series. Walter Presents will deliver hand-selected global hits to our audience.”
Walter Iuzzolino added: “The PBS Masterpiece Prime Video Channel already provides audiences with a fabulous collection of British series. Now, subscribers will have access to some truly amazing global drama series providing a chance to enjoy the very best the rest of the world has to offer.”
