Amazon today announced that its Prime Video service is available worldwide, with support for “200 countries and territories.” To celebrate the expansion, the retail giant is also offering an introductory price of just $3/€3 per month for the first six months.
Prime Video has long been available in the U.S. and a small number of other countries as an incentive to get Amazon shoppers to subscribe to the Prime service. But in many territories, the service wasn’t available due to rights and licensing issues.
Now that’s changed. As of today, Prime Video is available in 200 countries and territories, and it now has its very own website. That means you don’t have to hunt for movies and TV shows using the main Amazon.com website anymore.
Subscribers can enjoy Prime content in English, but many titles are available with subtitles and dubbing in French, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish.
Those who don’t want the complete Prime subscription can sign up to Prime Video only at an introductory price of $3/€3 per month for the first six months. After that, the service will cost $6/€6, which is still $4 cheaper than Netflix.
In the U.S., Prime Video is still priced at $9 a month. It’s unclear whether Amazon has plans to lower this to meet the cost in other markets, but for now it hasn’t changed.
