Amazon Prime Video Explains: What Is It? How much does it cost?

"Lucifer" has found a home on Amazon. Bastian Pastewka has migrated from Sat.1 to Prime Video. The ex-makers of "Top Gear" are now continuing their broadcast on Amazon Prime Video. There is no doubt: Amazon is expanding its video offering in large steps and has long been more interesting than many television channels.

In this article, we will give you an introduction to Amazon Prime Video - starting with the video offering and the PayTV channels to the devices on which you can watch.

This is what Amazon Prime Video offers

With Amazon Prime Video, you can watch blockbuster films that were shown in the cinemas “yesterday” and the latest TV series. There are also exclusive in-house productions, Prime Originals such as "Vikings" and "Mr. Robot". The range also includes popular classics and children's series, including "Tom and Jerry" and "Bibi Blocksberg".

Which series and films are currently included in the Prime subscription - "free", so to speak - changes depending on the term of the licenses. Our monthly guide to Amazon Prime Video news provides an overview of the latest new releases. In addition, you can of course choose from the entire Amazon range of loan and purchase titles for a fee.

With the Prime Video Channels, Amazon also offers PayTV via video streaming. You can book channels such as MGM, Cirkus, GEO and Syfy Horror for a few euros a month each. In contrast to Sky, for example, you don't have to subscribe to packages that also contain channels that you don't want to see at all.

Because you can cancel at any time, you remain flexible. You can get rid of a station that no longer interests you after a maximum of one month. Tip: The Prime Video Channels also include “Eurosport Player” or Eurosport 2 XTRA.

This is how Amazon Prime Video works

The Prime Video app is available for smartphones and tablets with Android or corresponding devices from Apple and Amazon. It can stream videos and save them if necessary - useful for playback away from an Internet connection.

The rest of the Amazon hardware like Fire TV and Fire TV Stick is also ready for Prime Video. Prime Video is also at home on many other devices, for example on the AppleTV and NVIDIA Shield streaming clients, but also on smart TVs and game consoles such as Xbox and Playstation.

Amazon Prime Video: costs

Amazon Prime Video is part of Amazon Prime, which costs 7.99 euros a month (or 5.75 euros / month if paid annually). In addition to videos, Prime also offers 2 million songs via streaming, the bonuses from Prime Gaming and largely eliminates shipping costs when shopping online on Amazon.de.

Videos that are included in the cost of Amazon Prime are identified by the service with the eye-catching "Prime" logo. In addition, Amazon also offers films and TV series that you can buy or rent for an extra fee. These costs are then added to those for Amazon Prime.

You can test Amazon Prime free of charge for 30 days. To do this, log in to the Amazon Prime Video website with your Amazon login details or register as a new customer.
