Amazon Unbundles Prime Video: Now Available Without Full Prime Membership

If you have an Amazon Prime subscription, you know that, in addition to free, fast delivery, you also have access to a library of films and TV shows as part of Amazon Prime Video. Amazon has now made Prime Video available as a standalone subscription, costing $9 per month in the US.

With monthly rather than annual payment, this might interest people who want to subscribe to Prime Video for a month or two, every now and then. The annual plan, at $99 (or $8.25 per month), is a much better deal, especially if you want to benefit from the other Prime options, such as music streaming, ebooks, free shipping, and more.

The only reason to choose this option is if you don’t buy much from Amazon, and you don’t want to pay for Prime annually. If you don’t have Amazon Prime, you can try it for free for 30 days.
