Amazon Prime Now Offers Video-Only Subscription Plan
posted on by Karen Ressler
Amazon began offering a video-only subscription plan, distinct from its Amazon Prime membership, in the United States on Sunday. In addition, Amazon has added monthly subscription rates for both Amazon Prime and Amazon Prime Video. The monthly rate for Amazon Prime Video is US$8.99 and the monthly rate for Amazon Prime is US$10.99.
The regular Amazon Prime membership offers streaming video, as well as other benefits such as free two-day shipping and a Kindle lending library. The service was previously only available with a yearly subscription rate of US$99.00, which is still available.
Amazon and Fuji TV announced in March that they signed a deal for Amazon's Amazon Prime Videoservice to exclusively stream series from Fuji TV's Noitamina programming block going forward. This season's Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress anime is exclusively streaming on Amazon Prime Video both in Japan and in other countries where Amazon Prime Video is available.
