Is Amazon Prime Video a Good Deal?
The Look at the Pros and Cons of the Prime Service

Amazon’s video-on-demand service, Amazon Prime Video, occupies the second position in the growing video-on-demand industry, with around 26 million subscribers in the United States. However, I believe it is only growing at a rapid pace for one reason. That you get free shipping with the shopping service.

When looking at streaming services, one of the biggest things people wonder about is what the price of the service is. Amazon Prime costs $119 per year or $12.99 a month, and Amazon is reported to have over 100 million members. For many, the service is a no-brainer for the shipping perks alone. However, there’s a lot more to a Prime membership than free shipping and streaming services.

There are lots of benefits that come with Amazon Prime. One is shipping benefits, You get free 2 day shipping on all items outside of your zip code. As well as free 1 day shipping if it is in your zip code. Another is deals that Amazon does on Prime Day. Prime day is the annual shopping holiday that’s exclusive to Prime subscribers, it has thousands of marked down prices and lasts up to 36 hours, it is loved by millions of people.

Amazon Prime video service had thousands and thousands of movies and TV available for streaming. However most of these movies you have to pay an additional fee for that specific movie or tv show, this means there is a very small library of TV and movies that you can stream without paying the extra fees.

When looking at the streaming service alone, you will probably be let down, as I was. The price of Amazon Prime Video alone is $8.99 making it the same price as Netflix’s basic plan, and 2 dollars more expensive. Its amount of TV and movies you can stream for free is a let down as well for the price you’re paying. You would think you would get more choices. Despite this, if you are paying for Amazon Prime for shipping this is a great benefit to the shipping service. You should definitely check out the service if in your price range.
