Amazon Instant Video is a strong competitor in the VOD industry due to its affordable prices, various perks and bonuses with subscription, and it versatile video content library. By upgrading their accounts to Amazon Prime, customers can also watch movies and TV shows instantaneously on site.
Amazon Instant Video is recommended for its relatively affordable prices, its pay per view payment model which some customers may find beneficial, and its high quality video content which includes an impressive assortment of movies and TV shows. However, customers who wish to gain unlimited access to the service’s movies and TV shows, and to be able to watch said content instantaneously, will need to upgrade to an Amazon Prime account.
Amazon Instant Video is known for its impressive selection of video content, as well as its relatively affordable prices. You can sign up by joining Amazon Prime. Amazon Instant Video customers can enjoy a wide variety of movies in virtually any imaginable genre, and can watch TV shows from all of the major networks with the service’s all-inclusive package.
For only $99.00 per year, customers will be able to upgrade to an Amazon Prime account and gain unlimited access to instant streaming of thousands of movies and TV shows with Instant Videos. Customers who are not interested in upgrading will be required to pay per view, which could get a little costly if a customer is a heavy video content user.
The only major drawback I could find is, that if you don’t upgrade to Amazon Prime you are rather limited in your viewing capabilities as only Amazon Prime customers can watch movies and other video content instantaneously.
Amazon Instant Video features an easy to use, simply designed user interface and its video content is easily accessible from iPhones, iPads, blu-ray players and Tivo. Also, customers find that searching and selecting video content is simple and straightforward and that the Amazon Instant Video is neatly arranged and easy to navigate.
As a large company, Amazon has the resources to offer extensive customer support. You can explore the FAQ and help center with information relating to your account. From your account settings you can not only manage you videos, but also review recent orders purchased through Amazon. You can also get in touch with Amazon through your account.
