Amazon has announced a new mobile-only plan for Prime Video. Known as Prime Video Mobile Edition, the single-user plan is available only on mobile devices and is priced at Rs 599 per year. The mobile version of Amazon Prime Video was launched last year in partnership with Bharti Airtel and was limited to telecom network users only. The plan starts at Rs 89 per month and allows users to stream Amazon Prime videos in SD quality.
But the new Amazon Prime Video mobile version is available to all users regardless of their mobile network. It offers access to all content on the platform in standard definition (SD) quality. If you want to enjoy content in high definition, you need to upgrade to the standard version of Amazon Prime, which costs Rs 179 monthly or Rs 1499 annually.
Apart from Amazon Originals, users can enjoy all the Prime Video features like live cricket matches as well as X-Ray powered by IMDb and the ability to download shows for offline viewing. It looks like Amazon is planning to take on Netflix and Disney+Hotstar’s mobile plans.
While Amazon Prime Video mobile version costs Rs 50 per month, Netflix’s mobile plan costs Rs 149 per month while Disney+Hotstar mobile subscription costs Rs 41 per month or Rs 499 per year.
Those interested in the Amazon Prime Mobile Edition plan can sign up through the Android or iOS app or visit PrimeVideo.com. Amazon allows users to upgrade to other plans in the future if they wish.
