Amazon Prime Video Is Discontinuing Support for Local Originals in Africa and Middle East

By Annie NjanjaTage Kene-Okafor

Amazon Prime Video is said to be downsizing its Africa and Middle East operations in a move that will affect teams in the two regions; according to a report in Deadline, the company will instead focus on European originals.

Following the changes, Prime Video will stop contracting originals in Africa and Middle East markets. However, shows given the go-ahead will continue as planned.
