Up until now, Disney+ Hotstar (formerly known as Hotstar) was the sole place to go to for catching up with all kinds of sports in India. However, it changes today with Amazon acquiring rights to stream cricket on its Prime Video platform. Prime Video will now stream all cricket matches of New Zealand cricket going through 2025-2026 for the Indian territory. This also includes a tour of India to New Zealand in 2022.

“We are thrilled to work with New Zealand Cricket on this endeavor as they have a strong, passionate and much-loved cricket team, and the cricketing rivalry between the two countries has been fantastic. We are happy to make this collaboration with New Zealand Cricket our first live sport offering in India, and are confident that our Prime members will be delighted with this initiative,” he added.

The acquisition of rights to broadcast New Zealand Cricket package in India is the latest in Prime Video’s growing collection of live sports content from around the world. Prime Video users will also be able to watch Thursday Night Football, Premier League, ATP Tour Events, WTA, the US Open (tennis), UEFA Champions League, Autumn Nations Cup (rugby), and the Seattle Sounders FC.

Currently, Prime Video in India is only restricted to streaming movies, TV shows, and Amazon Originals. During the COVID-19 lockdown, Prime Video hosted a few movie releases and there’s more to come in the next few weeks. The platform lets users stream content in up to 4K resolution, provided both the content and device support it.

Subscription to Prime Video comes bundled with the Amazon Prime subscription, which costs Rs 999 for the annual package. The cost of the monthly package comes down to Rs 129. You also get a free subscription to Amazon Prime Music.
