Countless famous films and programs are being seen on Amazon Prime Video, including original movies like “Being the Ricardos” and exclusive series like “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.” It’s one of the many perks of an Amazon Prime subscription, but you can also join up for Prime Video separately.
To assist customers get started, we’ve broken down all of Prime Video’s features, plans, compatible devices, and programs.
What exactly is Amazon’s Prime Video service?
With an Amazon Prime subscription, you have access to Prime Video, an on-demand streaming service. You can sign up for Prime Video separately if you don’t have Amazon Prime.
Hundreds of movies, including award-winning films, original content, and highly renowned TV shows, are available on Prime Video.There are over 2,100 episodes and 24,000 movies to pick from on the streaming service. You may also rent or buy extra movies and TV episodes not included in your Prime Video membership, as well as add over 100 premium channels.
What does it cost to subscribe to Amazon Prime Video?
Amazon Prime membership costs $15 per month or $139 per year and includes Prime Video. If you don’t want any of the other Amazon Prime benefits, you can just get Prime Video for $9 a month. Prime Student allows students at US colleges and universities to save 50% on Amazon Prime by paying only $7.49 per month or $69 per year. EBT and Medicaid cardholders may be eligible for a $6.99-per-month Amazon Prime membership.
Can I get a free trial of Prime Video?
For a limited time, new members may obtain a 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime, which includes Prime Video. This is one of the most generous free trial periods available for any streaming provider. College students have an even longer trial period, with a free six-month subscription.
You may either pay the normal fee or cancel your plan when the trial time ends. To avoid paying for your following month, you must cancel your membership before the conclusion of the trial period.
What devices can I use to watch Prime Video?
You can watch Prime Video on your web browser, iOS and Android devices, and more. Here’s a list of devices compatible with Prime Video:
- Internet Explorer
- Microsoft Edge
- iOs (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch)
How does Prime Video stack up against other streaming services?
The price of Prime Video is in the middle of the pack when compared to ad-free subscriptions from other prominent streaming providers, such as HBO Max ($15 per month) and Apple TV Plus ($5 per month).
Its standalone pricing is roughly the same as a basic Netflix subscription ($10 per month), albeit Netflix’s choice is restricted to standard definition on one screen, whereas Prime Video allows up to 4K streaming on three screens for free.
Unlike other streaming services, Prime Video allows you to pay extra to buy particular movies and episodes that aren’t currently included in your membership. You may then retain them in your Prime account for on-demand viewing. Only Apple TV has this function.
Additionally, Prime Video is the only streaming service available as part of an Amazon Prime subscription. If you routinely have Amazon products brought to your house or want free delivery on food shopping over $50, the $6 monthly fee for Amazon Prime is a no-brainer.
