Amazon has made a big announcement today. The company is expanding its Prime Video service to more than 200 countries around the world. By signing up, you’ll be able to watch the popular Grand Tour show starring Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May as well as other Amazon original series including Mozart in the Jungle, Transparent, The Man in the High Castle, and others.
The service costs $2.99/€2.99 per month for the first six months. After the initial promotional period, the price gets bumped up to $5.99/€5.99 per month. Either way though, it’s a lot cheaper than Netflix. Amazon is also offering a seven-day free trial, so you’re able to test out the service before you decide to subscribe to it.
Users can access the Prime Video service on their Android or iOS devices, Amazon’s Fire tablets, a few smart TVs from Samsung and LG as well as online at primevideo.com. The good thing about it is that you can download all the content that’s available, so you can watch it even when you don’t have internet access. The shows are in English, with French, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish subtitles. Dubbed versions are also available.
Prime Video is a direct competitor to Netflix, which expanded its operations to 130 countries at the beginning of the year. And although Amazon’s service is now available to a larger audience, Netflix still offers more content than its rival.
So, if you want to check out what Clarkson and the gang are up to, click on the link below and sign up for a free seven-day trial. But keep in mind that Amazon will charge your credit card after the free trial, so make sure you cancel the subscription on time in case you don’t like what it has to offer.
