Content Owners often ask us why they should submit to Amazon via Filmhub (we have all worldwide territories) when they can submit directly themselves (typically to the US/UK markets only).
The Reason: Your film can make more money when you list on Amazon through Filmhub and your film will likely get selected by more channels on Filmhub.
Already submitted to Amazon Prime Video yourself? No worries, we can help you switch.
- When you list on Amazon through Filmhub you get access to 60+ English Speaking territories, not just the United States & United Kingdom. See here for a territory listing. These territories are growing very fast on Amazon and typically make up for Filmhub's 20% revenue share.
- One of the major drivers of your film in our search algorithms for Channels are your title's earnings. If the Amazon earnings aren't generated through Filmhub, you lose that extra benefit in our algorithms and other channels are less likely to see your potential success.
- We are now submitting films to IMDb TV which is Amazon's new AVOD service in the US and will be expanding to other countries in the future. They have higher pay rates and it isn't available to list on directly. Given the synergy in performance between Amazon Prime Video and IMDb TV we only submit films to IMDb TV that are listed on Amazon US/UK through Filmhub.
- Titles submitted to Amazon via Filmhub are typically reviewed by the Amazon team within a week. If you submit as an individual film creator it typically takes 6-8 weeks. This means your film is live making money quicker.
