Pokémon gets Amazon channel


Amazon and The Pokémon Company International have launched a new channel for Amazon Prime subscribers. For $2.99 a month, fans can watch a robust collection of video on demand, including seasons 2–5 and 10–16 of Pokémon the Series, the Pokémon Origins mini-series, plus four Pokémon movies. Movies will be rotated on a regular basis, giving fans an incentive to check back in and see what’s been added.

The Amazon channels platform allows third-party companies to operate subscription services using Amazon’s backend. Currently, the services require a member to already be paying for Amazon Prime to access content. The platform offers content from the likes of HBO, Acorn TV, Shout! Factory, CBS All Acess and more.

The double dipping on subscriptions has become a point of contention for some. When Amazon operated their Anime Strike service, anime fans were irate that they had to pay for a subscription on top of a subscription. Earlier this month Amazon dissolved the branding after just a year, relinquishing most of its content to normal Prime and Prime Video subscribers.

For Pokémon fans not interested in a subscription service, The Pokémon Company offers a free random assortment of episodes and movies to stream on their official website or through their mobile app. In the United States and Canada, Netflix currently offers the first season and seasons 17 through 19, as well as movies 17 to 19. Hulu has season 14 through 16 and movies 14 through 16. The show can also be seen on Disney XD in the United States and Teletoon in Canada. The Disney Now app recently added every episode of the TV series.
