Amazon Prime Video has unveiled the pricing for Warner Bros. Discovery's new Warner Pass streaming launch in France, and confirmed the service's launch date to be 16 March. "We are thrilled to agree a new partnership with Prime Video in France,” Pierre Branco, general manager France, Benelux and Africa at Warner Bros. Discovery said. “The launch of the ‘Warner Pass’ is great news for the French audience as our fans will be able to access all HBO series and our 12 television channels with a single subscription.”
Warner Pass will launch in France for €9.99 a month, and be available exclusively on Amazon Prime Video Channels. The service will offer all of HBO programs, along with 12 channels, including Warner TV, Eurosport, Discovery Channel, Cartoon Network and CNN, and their associated on-demand services. Subscribers can redeem a 30-day free trial until 3 April. The launch of the service comes months after Warner Bros. Discovery’s decision to pause the global rollout of HBO Max, which is now set to debut in France next year.
Upon launching, Prime customers in France can sign up for on-demand content from Warner TV, Toonami and Adult Swim. Other channels, including TCM Cinéma, Eurosport, CNN, Discovery Channel, ID, Discovery Science, Cartoon Network and Boomerang will be made available over the course of this month. Warner Bros. Discovery will also launch kids channel Cartoonito in France on April 3. The channel will also be available on the set-top boxes of ISPs Orange, Free, SFR and Bouygues Telecom.
Among Warner Pass's offerings are new seasons of HBO shows, such as "Succession," "Perry Mason," "The Gilded Age," "Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty," "Barry," "Somebody Somewhere," the new series such as "True Detective: Night Country," "The Idol" and "White House Plumbers" as well as exclusive access to HBO’s rich library of iconic series, like "Game of Thrones," "The Sopranos," "Sex And The City," "The Wire," "Veep" and "Chernobyl." “The launch of Warner Pass exclusively as a Prime Video channel in France is the next step in our journey to become the destination for customers in France to find the best in storytelling, premium entertainment and sports,” said Brigitte Ricou-Bellan, Prime Video French Country Director.
