It is particularly remarkable that all currently available channels are offered in HD resolution. This is not a matter of course with many streaming services, often there is a surcharge for HD options.

TV channels still limited on Amazon
However, there is a catch with the offer: Currently, this is mainly limited to public service programs of the ARD including regional channels and digital special interest channels as well as ZDF, ARTE and 3sat. The app also includes the news channel WELT from Axel Springer, also in HD resolution. It can be assumed that the number of television channels available on Amazon will continue to increase in the near future.
However, it seems unlikely that programs from the RTL Group or from Sat1 and ProSieben will also be added, for example. These are also available via their own streaming services RTL+ and JoynPlus. Perhaps there will be an agreement here.
