Amazon has become a major player in creating original TV shows. And not just any kind of show, but award-nominated and winning ones at that, with shows like Transparent, Mozart in the Jungle, and Man in the High Castle. And so it’s only but natural that they will launch their own video on demand streaming service and that’s exactly what they’ve done with Amazon Prime Video. They’ve expanded their reach and is now available in more than 200 countries.
Those who avail of the Prime Video membership will be able to stream their entire catalogue on Android smartphones and tablets, Fire tablets, and even smart TVs from LG and Samsung. Aside from the aforementioned shows, which have racked up multiple Emmy and Golden Globe nominations and wins, you will also be able to view shows like The Grand Tour, the brand new reality show from the guys of Top Gear. You also get Amazon Original Kids series like Creative Galaxy and Gortimer Gibbons’ Life on Normal Street. New shows like Woody Allen’s Crisis in Six Scenes, David E. Kelly’s Goliath, the docu-series American Playboy: The Hugh Hefner Story will also be ready for viewing.
If you’re an Amazon Prime subscriber in Belgium, Canada, France, India, Italy, and Spain, you won’t need to make additional payment when you sign up for Amazon Prime Video. Other territories where the service is now available can sign up for an introductory price of $2.99 or €2.99 per month. Or if you want, you can try a 7-day free trial to see if it’s worth coughing up that extra money to add to your list of video streaming services (if you’re already subscribed to others).
Amazon Prime Video has dubbed or subtitled versions available in French, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish. You will also be able to download videos for offline viewing as well. The regular price will be $5.99 or €5.99 monthly after this initial offer which will last 6 months, so better get on it after you’ve enjoyed the free trial.
