Film1 Action Launches on Amazon Prime Video Channels in the Netherlands

Starting June 17, Film1 Action linear channel will be available on Amazon Prime Video Channels in the Netherlands. Prime members in the Netherlands can access the Film1 package as an add-on paid monthly subscription.

Film1 is delighted to announce that Film1 Action, one of the best performing linear channels in the Film1 bouquet, will be available on Amazon Prime Video Channels in the Netherlands starting June 17, 2021. Film1 Action will be included in the Film1 add-on package where Prime members can access a special curation of Hollywood blockbusters, popular movies and now exciting action features completing the lineup of Film1’s four linear channels and extensive on-demand selection.  

Film1 successfully launched its three other linear channels – Film1 Premiere, Film1 Drama and Film1 Family – and a curated selection of on-demand content with Prime Video Channels in the Netherlands late last year. The Film1 package, which caters to different viewing habits with four linear channels and curated on-demand content, allows Prime members to enjoy critically-acclaimed titles such as: Guy Ritchie’s The Gentlemen, starring Matthew McConaughey, Charlie Hunnam, and Hugh Grant; Roland ‘Independence Day’ Emmerich’s Midway which recounts the story of the Battle of Midway, told by the leaders and the sailors who fought it in WWII and Midsommar, starring Academy Award-nominated Florence Pugh about a young couple who spend a month in Sweden observing the summer rituals of an obscure commune called the Harga.

“The action genre is the most popular genre on Film1, which makes the inclusion of Film1 Action on Amazon Prime Video Channels in the Netherlands particularly relevant for Dutch viewers. At Film1, we are always committed to bringing the best and the most appealing content acquired from top distributors to our viewers,” said Jeroen Bergman, Managing Director at Film1.

Other highlights include: Hard Kill (2020), starring Bruce Willis; horror and crime drama movies Child’s Play (2019) and Penoza: The Final Chapter (2019); Academy Award-winners Django Unchained and Zero Dark Thirty, and 2019 action hits Rambo: Last Blood and Angel Has Fallen.

Film1 is available for Prime members in the Netherlands via the existing Prime Video app to watch anytime, anywhere on smart TVs, mobile, Amazon Fire TV Stick, game consoles and through the web. Prime members will be able access the content with the convenience of a single account, login and user experience through Prime Video so there’s no need to jump from app to app.
