Following the launch of Amazon’s new TV series “The Grand Tour”, Amazon reassured their non-Prime customers that Prime Video would be available globally. This means that even in countries that Prime is not available in, customers will still be able to subscribe to the Prime Video service.
The good news is that the time has come as Amazon has officially announced that Prime Video has been launched in over 200 countries around the world. The launch of the service will see Amazon charge customers $2.99 a month as an introductory price. This price will be valid for the first 6 months, after which it will be priced at $5.99 a month, which is still admittedly cheaper than other services out there.
There will also be a free 7-day trial so for those who are thinking whether or not to get the service, not to worry as you’ll get to try before you buy. Amazon’s decision to launch Prime Video around the world is similar to the steps taken by Netflix earlier this year where they finally opened up its doors to the rest of the world.
Now whether or not you think that Prime Video is a worthwhile subscription is entirely up to you. You will of course have to check out the service’s catalogue of shows and movies first to see if it’s worth the monthly subscription, but know that the service is there should you choose to sign up for it. The list of countries the service has launched in is available on Amazon’s website. Hopefully this will see the piracy of some of their shows reduced.
