Launched in September 2015, Amazon Prime Video in Japan has garnered much attention in recent years for its focus in bringing a wide range of original programs such as drama, infotainment, reality show, comedy and documentary to Prime members. In this presentation, Amazon Prime Video’s James Farrell will share with the audience examples of successful shows such as HITOSHI MATSUMOTO Presents Documental, as well as recent viewer trends and an overall Japan/Asia content strategy to reveal a glimpse of what’s to come.
