Prime is a Belgian premium television service owned by Telenet, the Belgian content division of Liberty Global. Prime launched together with its sister service Prime Sport (later Sporting Telenet and now Play Sports) on September 3, 2005 and replaced the Canal+ Flanders television channels.[1] The service offers multiple film channels with Belgian and international productions many of which are television premières.

The service launched with five channels and a timeshift version of the main channel. Starting March 2015, all channels are broadcsted exclusively in HD, the timeshift version of PRIME Star (PRIME Star +1) has thus been closed down. The channels are only available on Telenet (Belgium) and its Yelo Play service with the Play More package.
