I love Amazon Prime. I’ve been a customer of Amazon Prime since I got a free year of Prime service with my Kindle Fire tablet. I even got a Kindle Fire TV stick to stream video from Prime to my television. Huge fan of their video offerings, the free e-book a month, the e-book library rentals, and of course, the Free shipping. However, I can understand that not everyone can afford $99 a year for Prime membership if they’re just looking for access to streaming video. Amazon to the rescue, then. Amazon has introduced a Prime Video streaming plan.
For only $8.99 a month, you can access all of Amazon’s streaming video content. It doesn’t matter what it is, from original series to hit movies. You don’t get any of the other Amazon Prime benefits, but that’s okay, because it’s cheaper than Netflix AND it offers Ultra HD streaming without an extra fee. A year-long subscription to Prime Video would be $107.88; $8.88 more than a $99 year-long subscription to Amazon Prime with all the other benefits.
Then again, you can cancel Amazon’s Prime Video streaming service after a few months and pick it back up for the next season of The Man In the High Castle or Transparent or something else.
