Today, Amazon launched another way for storytellers to share their content – this time with Amazon Video Direct (AVD), which enables video providers to share their content on Amazon Video.

Amazon Video already offers customers unlimited access to tens of thousands of movies and TV episodes, including award-winning Amazon Original Series. But starting today, with AVD, content creators from around the world will now have a more self-service way to share their stories directly to Amazon and Amazon Prime customers.

AVD content creators will earn royalties based on the number of hours their content streams, and they can choose to make their titles available in any country where Amazon Video is available to expand their customer reach. Additionally, they are given performance metrics, like number of subscribers, so they can best promote their content to customers.

Also launching today is the AVD Stars program, which gives video creators a share of one million dollars per month based on customer engagement with their title. Here’s how the program works: Amazon will distribute to creators a monthly bonus from the one million dollar monthly fund, based on the Top 100 AVD titles in Prime Video, in addition to any other revenue earned.
