After teasing it last month, Amazon Prime Video has gone global with the streaming service having now become available in more than 200 countries and territories.
The move puts the service, available through PrimeVideo.com, in direct competition with Netflix, which had its own global rollout earlier this year. As with Netflix, however, the service is not available in China.
Customers in the other new Prime Video territories can sign up at an introductory price of USD$2.99 per month for the first six months, starting with a free seven-day trial.
Subscribers can watch through the Amazon Prime Video app on Android and iOS phones, and tablets, Fire Tablets and select LG and Samsung smart TVs; they can also download movies and TV shows for offline viewing.
Testing the service here in Australia on Wednesday night, Amazon Original Series are now available and running, but that’s about it. The film menus often go to broken links, TV menus not much better though these errors are expected to be fixed shortly.
