Singapore-based MMA promotion ONE Championship has secured a multi-year deal with Amazon Prime Video for live programming.

The deal means that Prime Video will air 12 live events per year for ONE Championship in the U.S. and Canada, per a press release issued Wednesday.

The new deal is set to be five years in total, per reporter Ariel Helwani. It is not known at the moment when ONE Championship’s deal with Prime Video is set to begin.

Prime Video is a video service that is offered by Amazon through their “Prime” subscription service. For just under $15 a month (or an annual fee of $139 per year), a subscription allows customers access to a variety of programming.

The service is best known for a selection of movies and TV programs that can be watched on-demand. Unlike competitor service Netflix, Prime Video has also focused on a more diverse set of content, including live sporting events.

Notably, the service is currently paying $1 billion per year to be the exclusive home for NFL’s Thursday night games.

ONE Championship is coming off a run with U.S. TV network Turner Broadcasting System. In this deal, ONE Championship events were available through online subscription service “B/R Live,” and a variety of shows aired on TV channel TNT through tape delay or a live late-night time slot.
