I’ve been an Amazon Prime customer for a long time, at least since I got my Kindle Fire tablet. Once I got used to free two-day shipping, video streaming, and all the other benefits to having Prime, I couldn’t say no to it. However, some people don’t want the free two-day shipping, they might just want access to Amazon’s great original programming and video streaming offerings. Well, congratulations, that’s now a thing that you can have. Amazon has a video-only Prime subscription without all the other benefits of Prime.
Prime Video is only $8.99 a month, cheaper than Netflix while offering Ultra HD streaming through its video servers. That’s a pretty sweet deal, and it’s perfect for people who might want a month or two to watch The Man In The High Castle but not pay for a full year of Amazon Prime. However, if you pay for Amazon Prime, you actually save about $8 per year over just subscribing to Prime Video for a year, but if you don’t want all the other benefits to Prime, then that’s your business.
A streaming plan for $8.99 is still a really good deal.
