Amazon Prime video has always been a little like a different brand of internet access.
It offers all the same basic things you can get at a cable or satellite provider: an unlimited number of movies and TV shows to watch and unlimited access to Prime memberships.
But it also offers some additional perks.
Prime members can stream and purchase movies and Prime-branded apps.
You can also download movies from Amazon’s app store and play them on Amazon Prime members’ devices.
Here are 10 things you need to know before you sign up for Amazon Prime.1.
Amazon Prime is a subscription service.
It costs $99 a year and unlocks access to millions of films and TV programs from Netflix, Hulu, HBO Now, Amazon Prime Music, Amazon Video, Vudu, Amazon Music Unlimited, VOD, Hulu Plus, Amazon Books, and more.
You get a free year of Prime and an additional 10 percent for every year you pay.2.
If you don’t have a cable TV subscription, Amazon is offering a free streaming service that offers access to a limited number of Prime-licensed titles.
You will still be able to watch some movies and programs from your cable subscription, but the content will only be available for Prime members, so you’ll need to add a subscription.
You’ll need a Netflix account, a Hulu account, and a Amazon Prime membership to watch these titles.3.
Amazon is not affiliated with HBO, Amazon, or any of the shows or movies that Prime members have already downloaded or purchased.
Amazon has said that Prime Video is not a direct competitor to HBO or HBO Go.
Amazon said that its services “have not been made available to the HBO service.”4.
If the Amazon Video service isn’t working on your TV, Amazon has told you to try another service.
If your cable provider hasn’t let you watch Prime Video on your cable box, you can try the Netflix Prime service.
You don’t need a separate Prime subscription to watch Netflix on Amazon’s video service.5.
You won’t be able watch Prime video from a phone or tablet.
Netflix said it will not support Amazon’s Prime Video app on phones and tablets.
But if you have a Samsung phone or a Sony Xperia phone or an Apple iPad, you’ll be able.6.
You may have to sign up on Amazon if you’re not a Prime member.
If, for some reason, you don’st want to sign in with a Google, Apple, or Amazon account, you might want to add your Amazon Prime subscription as an add-on.
That will allow you to watch the Amazon Prime-exclusive content.7.
If Amazon’s YouTube app isn’t showing up on your phone or computer, you need a video player.
Amazon’s free video app, dubbed Video On Demand, lets you watch videos from the Amazon Music Store, Vimeo, and other services, but you’ll have to pay for the Amazon Premium membership.
If a service like Hulu or HBO Plus doesn’t work on your computer, try another one like Vudubed or Netflix Player.8.
Amazon says you can only use one device to watch Prime-supported content.
If two people use the same device to stream the same content, they won’t get the same access.
If they have a different device, they’ll get access to more content.9.
If someone you know or are in a similar relationship has an Amazon Prime account, they can stream your movies and showings to each other.
But you can’t share or copy content to a different person’s Amazon Prime box or use it with other people.10.
You might need to pay a fee if you want to buy Prime members access to the Amazon TV service.
Amazon charges $9.99 per month for the Prime video service, which includes Prime-certified shows like “American Gods,” “Stranger Things,” and “The Handmaid’s Tale,” plus access to Amazon’s Amazon TV platform.
But Prime video is free for people who don’t use Amazon’s mobile app or the Amazon app store, but Amazon says it will add $5 for each additional user.
