Move over Netflix. Amazon Prime Monthly Subscription has arrived. Starting next month, Amazon will be launching a brand new monthly (flexible) subscription service. This means that instead of paying the $99 upfront, you’ll have the option to pay just $10.99 per month and still enjoy all of the same benefits (2-day shipping, music streaming and more).
If you want a Prime membership just to binge on your favorite shows, you can pay just $8.99 per month and get full access to Amazon Prime Video (without all of the other benefits). Check out the chart below to see what’s included with each membership.
While the overall price will be more expensive ($107.99 for Amazon Prime Video only, or $131.88 for all Prime benefits) than the yearly price, the monthly service may be more attractive to most Amazon fans, because it can be canceled at any time. So a customer can sign up for a monthly plan, binge on the newest TV shows or enjoy free 2-day shipping, then cancel the plan–without any cancelation fees or penalties.
To give you an idea of how this compares to other competing companies–Netflix will be raising their prices to $9.99 per month for ALL members starting in May, and Hulu currently has their commercial-free service for $11.99 per month (or $7.99 per month with limited commercials).
