Amazon Video is not exactly like other video streaming services. While it’s available as a standalone service for $8.99 per month, most people likely interact with it as a benefit of Amazon Prime, which runs $119 per year. Also unlike its streaming competition, there’s pay content mixed in with the gratis stuff. It can be difficult (sometimes frustratingly so) to separate them, particularly when Prime Video offerings change monthly.
But that being said, Prime Video has much to offer and has quietly evolved into a premiere streaming service in and of itself, with top-notch originals such as Fleabag, Good Omens, and an impressive library of films.
If you’re not already a Prime subscriber, Amazon Video is definitely a factor to consider (as is the upcoming Prime Day). If you’re already a subscriber, here are some features you might not know about.
