For years, Amazon Prime has been the best deal on the internet. For a relatively small yearly rate, subscribers get streaming video, music streaming, book borrowing, and most impressively, free 2 day shipping. It seems that Amazon want to put a little more attention on their streaming video, which is frequently overshadowed by the free 2 day shipping. As such, Amazon will be offering a monthly stand alone video streaming service. For $8.99/month, which undercuts Netflix by $1, subscribers can gain access to Amazon’s library of licences and original video content. In addition, users can also opt for a $10.99/month subscription which includes the video streaming, as well as the other Amazon Prime perks. Users can also still choose the $99 annual rate for Prime which is cheaper than either monthly rate, but locks users in for a full year. Amazon has been upping their original content game in order to compete with Netflix. Amazon originals include Transparent, Mad Dogs, Man in the High Castle, and Mozart in the Jungle.
