Amazon has aligned itself with other streaming services by offering Amazon Prime at $7.99 per month. That’s the same price you’ll pay for Netflix or Hulu Plus. Amazon Prime includes thousands of movies and TV…
When the new lineup of Kindle Fire tablets was announced several months ago, Amazon also introduced FreeTime, a parental control feature that lets parents limit the time their kids can use the tablet for reading books, watching video, or playing games – while blocking access to web browser and the app store.
Just in time for the holiday, the kid mode has received a boost with the introduction of the Kindle FreeTime Unlimited.
The new subscription service gives your kids unlimited access to a plethora of books, movies, TV shows, games, and apps at a monthly flat rate of $2.99 per child for Amazon Prime members or $4.99 for non-Prime members. The price goes up to $6.99 and $9.99, respectively, if you want to add up to 6 children to the service.
The content comes from Disney, Nickelodeon, PBS, Sesame Workshop, and more. All in-app payments and advertisements are removed from the apps – making the playground more conducive for the little ones.
The all-you-can-eat plan is available for owners of the Kindle Fire HD tablets, as well as the refreshed Kindle Fire. You will be getting a free software update on your Kindle Fires in the coming weeks to enable the Kindle FreeTime Unlimited feature, and it will come with a free one-month trial. This should help keep the kids occupied during the long holiday trips.
