Why should I submit to Amazon via Filmhub instead of directly?

How we work with Amazon Prime Video and Freevee

In this guide:

  • The advantage of licensing to Amazon through Filmhub

Producers often ask us why they should submit to Amazon via Filmhub when they can submit themselves directly.

⭐️ The Reason: Your Movie can make more money when you license to Amazon through Filmhub and your Movie will likely get selected by more Channels on Filmhub.


  1. When you list on Amazon through Filmhub, you can get access to 60+ English Speaking territories if you perform well, not just the United States & United Kingdom. See here for a territory listing. These territories are growing fast on Amazon and typically make up for Filmhub's 20% revenue share.

  2. One of the major drivers of your Movie 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.

  3. We are also submitting Movies to Freevee, which is Amazon's AVOD service in the US and UK and will be expanding to other countries in the future. They have higher pay rates - plus, producers cannot license to Freevee directly. Given the synergy in performance between Amazon Prime Video and Freevee, we only submit Movies to Freevee TV that are listed on Amazon US/UK through Filmhub.

  4. Titles submitted to Amazon via Filmhub are typically reviewed by the Amazon team within one week. If you submit as an individual it typically takes 6-8 weeks.

Other Benefits on Amazon:

  • Amazon recommender synergy: “You might also like” lists your Movie next to other Filmhub titles.

Other Benefits on Filmhub:

  • Consolidated reporting: See your worldwide digital revenue in one place - “one-stop shopping” is convenient.

  • Auditing and collection with Amazon included, solving accounting problems.

  • Free delivery to Amazon specs: No conversion or delivery cost (post-production house etc) to Amazon with Filmhub, artwork generation, caption generation and QC.

  • Filmhub QC - Less danger of rejection loop on Amazon (Amazon frequently rejects titles for quality issues and often doesn't accept re-submissions. Filmhub QC can make sure the title is ready to submit).
