'Moonlight' Amazon Prime Premiere Set for May 21 + Every New Title Premiering on the Streaming Service Next Month


Amazon Prime Video last month announced the extension of an exclusive content agreement with A24, making Prime Video the only premium subscription home for all upcoming A24 films.

Under the agreement, the multiple Oscar-winning drama “Moonlight” will be available for Prime members to stream and download at no additional cost to their membership, starting on May 21, it’s been confirmed today with Amazon’s monthly release of its streaming library additions.

“We are thrilled to be the exclusive subscription streaming service to offer customers Academy Award winner ‘Moonlight,'” stated Jason Ropell, VP, Worldwide Head of Motion Pictures for Amazon Studios, in a previous statement. “We already have an incredible catalog of films from A24 like ‘Room’ and ‘Ex Machina’ that Prime members love to watch and we are happy to extend our relationship to continue to bring Prime members these award winning, prestige films.”

Prime Video is available via the Amazon Video app for TVs, connected devices and mobile devices, or online at Amazon.com/primevideo. In addition to unlimited streaming, Prime members can also download titles to mobile devices at no additional cost for offline viewing.
