The quality viewing content race has just got interesting as Amazon has just announced that its premier viewing content wing Amazon Prime will now be available in more than 200 countries. This seems to be the direct challenge to Netflix which is still not having a wider global reach. Amazon Prime Video can be viewed at just $2.99 per month for first six months as per its introductory offer goes. Netflix might be challenged on the global reach part but when it comes to quality content Amazon Prime still lacks behind Netflix.
Amazon Prime Video Low Subscription Rates and Presence in More Than 200 Countries
Even the yearly offer is also very attractive from Amazon Prime as it stands at just $5.99 a month for the first year. If you want to test what is the content and how it works, you can even have its free seven-day offer to grab. On the other hand, Netflix has services reaching up to 130 countries as off now. Both Amazon Prime and Netflix don’t have any presence in China as the country has a tight control over the internet. But still Chinese people loved watching the biggest hits of Netflix, ‘House of Cards’ and ‘Sherlock’ on pirated versions.
It is not clear that Amazon Prime will have which shows on its plate, but they have confirmed that their popular shows like ‘Mozart in the Jungle’, ‘Transparent’, ‘The Man in the High Castel’ and ‘The Grand Tour’ will be available on Amazon Prime worldwide. Now, with such low subscription price Amazon can only hope that it will get more honest subscribers and thus its prime shows doesn’t have to face piracy and make losses. One thing is clear that Amazon has now concentrated on ways to attract families more towards it and like its recently added photo sharing feature on its app this next announcement is confirming reaching out to more people via Amazon Prime.
Among the 200 countries where Amazon Prime Video will be available, the major countries are Belgium, France, Italy, Spain, Canada, and India.
