Prime Video has announced a multi-year agreement with Overtime Elite for exclusive rights to stream 20 live games per season.
The deal lasts for the next 3 seasons and begins on November 4. Apart from broadcast rights, Prime Video will stream an unscripted series that will premiere in mid-2023.
Overtime Elite is a basketball league with six teams. It features the top 16-20-year-old players globally. Overtime offers its players a minimum salary of $100,000 per year, as well as shares in the company.
Dan Porter, Overtime co-founder and CEO said: “This collaboration with Prime Video is an exciting move for Overtime Elite, affording us the opportunity to reach even more sports fans.
“Prime Video has separated themselves as the premier live-sports streaming service, and we are thrilled to showcase Overtime Elite and our fan-first approach in front of Amazon’s global audience.”
Marie Donoghue, vice president of global sports video at Amazon said: “Like Overtime, we hold a mutual commitment to serving the next generation of sports fans, and we are proud to join Overtime on their journey as the league continues to see tremendous growth.”
