"We are excited to announce that starting today (14 December), fans around the world have access to Prime Video,” said Tim Leslie, vice-president, International, Prime Video.
“The Grand Tour and other critically acclaimed Amazon Original Series like Transparent, Mozart in the Jungle, and The Man in the High Castle, along with hundreds of popular Hollywood movies and TV shows, are now available at the introductory price of only US$2.99 a month. And what’s really exciting is that we are just getting started.”
Members can also download all movies and TV shows for offline viewing. No indication was given in a media release whether there was a time after which the downloads would expire.
The media release said members could control the amount of data they used when streaming and downloading video by choosing between good, better and best visual quality settings.
The automated and machine learning systems will also select the best streaming configurations for a given customer based on their device, location and ISP.
