MGM Studios owner Amazon said on Tuesday that its MGM+ has struck a strategic deal to offer Lionsgate and Starz programming to customers in the U.K., including hit show Outlander.

Under the partnership, the MGM-branded service will offer series and movies from Lionsgate and Starz in the U.K., giving customers access to more hit series and movies. This is the third in a series of content deals that MGM+ previously closed with Lionsgate for Europe and Latin America. Financial terms weren’t disclosed.

Lionsgate+ subscribers who joined via Prime Video Channels in the U.K. will now get access to the MGM programming service beginning in April. Later in May, the MGM service will be rebranded to MGM+ in the U.K. to align with the recent rebrand that occurred in Europe, Latin America, and the United States. MGM+ is now available in 31 countries and is one of the most subscribed Prime Video Channels globally.

“MGM+ in the U.K. will become the exclusive home to some of Starz’s most popular first-run TV series, including the complete Outlander franchise, Power Book I-IV, BMF, The Serpent Queen, P-Valley, and Hightown,” the partners said. “Additionally, the MGM+ service will become the home to legacy hit series The GreatMad MenNashvilleWeeds, as well as blockbuster hit movies American PsychoReservoir DogsSaw, and many more favorites.”

“The expansion of MGM+ in the United Kingdom further cements Amazon’s commitment to invest in and grow the MGM+ channel internationally, while enhancing the content offering available to subscribers,” said Josh McIvor, global general manager, MGM+.

“The addition of premium first-run TV franchises such as Outlander and Power, along with many blockbuster hit movies, will allow MGM+ to continue its evolution as a premium international streaming service,” said Michael Katzer, head of MGM+ International.

“We are pleased to extend our partnership with MGM+ to bring beloved films and television series to the service in the United Kingdom,” said Agapy Kapouranis, Lionsgate president of international television and digital distribution. “With the addition of the United Kingdom, Lionsgate and Starz content will now be available to MGM+ viewers in more than 20 countries around the world.”

Chase Brisbin and Kathryn Ikenberry Jones negotiated the deal on behalf of Lionsgate.
