Prime Video is home to more content than you might realize. If you’re ready to stream blockbuster movies, hit shows, award-winning Amazon Originals, premium channels, and sports, read on for everything you need to know about Prime Video.
How much is Prime Video?
Prime Video is available as part of the Amazon Prime membership, which costs $14.99 per month or $139 annually for an individual.
The membership gives access to all the perks of Amazon Prime (including free Two-Day Delivery on eligible items, and other benefits) plus the full library of content available through Prime Video. Prime also offers two discounted memberships: Prime Access, for recipients of select government assistance programs; and Prime Student, for higher education students.
You can also sign-up for Prime Video on its own for $8.99 per month, however, you won’t get the other benefits that come with Prime—like free One-Day Delivery and Same-Day Delivery on eligible orders and fast grocery delivery and pickup.
