Amazon Prime Video is a popular video streaming service. It is available for $8.99/month on its own, but the most compelling aspect is that it’s included for free with an Amazon Prime membership (available for $14.99/month or $139/year). Unlike Netflix and Disney+, Amazon Prime Video offers a 30-day free trial. While it may not have the same capabilities as Netflix or Disney+, Amazon Prime Video is still a worthy competitor in this space. It’s available for virtually every operating system, has a growing library of original programming, and is essentially free for those who already have Amazon Prime.

There’s a lot of content on Amazon Prime Video, from the classics to a growing number of excellent Prime Originals.
