Amazon Prime Video is now available in more than 200 countries around the world, Amazon has announced. Amazon said it would roll out the service to more territories earlier this year, and now it's made good on that promise.
In some markets, the service can be had for $2.99 / €2.99 a month, though only as an introductory price. After six months, the subscription will jump up to the usual $5.99 / €5.99 a month.
Here in the UK, we pay £5.99 a month for Prime Video. Or it can be had as part of Amazon Prime, which also gives you unlimited streaming of 2 million songs from Amazon Music and free next-day delivery on some items ordered from Amazon. Prime costs £79 a year, which works out about £6.58 a month.
The new territories mean Amazon Prime Video is now available in more countries than Netflix. Netflix – Amazon's arch streaming rival – is available in more than 190 countries, thanks to a huge expansion earlier this year.
As with all streaming services, what content is on offer depends on which country you're in. However, Amazon has said that 'Mozart in the Jungle', 'Transparent', 'The Man in the High Castle' and 'The Grand Tour' will be available around the world.
'The Grand Tour' recently took the dubious honour of becoming the most illegally downloaded show in the world, overtaking 'Game of Thrones'. Both Amazon and Netflix have been nominated for numerous Golden Globes recently, with Amazon snagging more noms than its rival.
