Amazon Prime Video
Almost a week ago Amazon Video launched in 200 counties around the world and Kuwait is one of them.
Almost a year ago it was Netflix who went global and just like Netflix, Amazon Video is starting with limited materials, very limited material.
Comparing between Netflix and Amazon Video starting content, Netflix started with a great show Narcos but Amazon got nothing prime to kick start their global launch.
There are very very few shows and with only two star shows The Man in High castle and Seinfeld, and there are little more movies than shows. This is Kuwait region of course, and I think with time just like Netflix, Amazon Video gallery will grow bigger.
In terms of price, Amazon Video promotion offer is $2.99 + tax per month for the first 6 months then it will be $5.99 + tax per month, it is less than Netflix prices of $8, $10 and $12 per month. Also Amazon Video trial period (7 days) is much shorter than Netflix (30 days).
Interface and app integration for Amazon Video, for me it feels little outdated and looks tacky, it still works fine and you still can find their app for Smart TV and other platforms.
I don’t think I will renew my Amazon Video after my 7 days trial, I will wait few months before I subscribe again maybe by then their gallery grows more, because as it is now, it is very poor, I can watch all it content in the 7 days trial.
