Cinema and Amazon cooperate for streaming special „Best of Amazon Prime Video“

Burda’s film magazine Cinema publishes the special „Best of Amazon Prime Video“ together with Amazon. Cinema’s editorial team presents their own selection of the streaming service’s 100 most watchable films, series and documentaries in this special issue. It also includes up-to-date background information on selected formats and in-depth interviews with top stars such as Matthias Schweighöfer, who has just produced “You are Wanted” for Amazon, Germany’s first exclusive thriller series for a streaming service.

Cinema’s editorial team worked their way through approximately 20 000 Amazon Prime Video items to be able to give their readers the best recommendations. The selection takes particular account of Amazon’s own productions, so-called “Amazon originals”, besides blockbusters („Fast & Furious 7“), music events („Foo Fighters“) and hits for kids („Gortimer Gibbon“). These include the transgender dramedy “Transparent”, which received several awards, the literary adaptation “The Man in the High Castle”, and the legal thriller “Goliath” with Golden Globe winner Billy Bob Thorton playing the lead.


"The successful production of the special together with Amazon is a first: Cinema is the first magazine to offer a detailed programme guide by specialised editors for a global streaming service. The special also continues the successful series of special publications in the booming market of streaming service providers.”

Nina von Rheinbaben, head of publishing at Cinema

“Amazon offers a huge range of streaming content. Any spectator who does not want to keep ending up with their own favorites needs guidance and depends on recommendations. The ‘Best of Amazon Prime Video’ Cinema special offers both, in combination with what Cinema is about: high-quality journalism and a passion for great stories.”

Philipp Schulze, deputy chief editor at Cinema


The 164-page Cinema special “Best of Amazon Prime Video” was published on 16 March 2017 in a print edition of 50 000 copies. Each copy costs 6.90 Euros. The magazine is available at regular newsagents and on Amazon.de. All members of Prime will be able to receive the digital Kindle edition of the special for free in April.
