Amazon’s Prime Video free trial also includes the benefits of Amazon Prime

Streaming may be your number 1 priority, but a Prime Video membership also unlocks a world of perks you need to know about.

We’re reader-supported and may be paid when you visit links to partner sites. We don’t compare all products in the market, but we’re working on it!

It was a long time coming but, as of June 2018, Amazon Prime has been available in Australia. Aussies now have access to many of the benefits US customers have been enjoying for some time.

When you sign up to stream TV shows and movies with Prime Video, you get bonus features such as free delivery on Amazon purchases. If you sign up for the delivery perks, you have free access to a giant collection of entertainment. It's a win-win.

Amazon Prime Video free trial

New customers are eligible for a 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime, which includes free access to Prime Video. There is no lock-in contract and you can cancel whenever you like before the end of the free period.

FREE TRIAL: 30 days of Prime Video's premium TV shows and movies for free

FREE TRIAL: 30 days of Prime Video's premium TV shows and movies for free from Prime Video

Prime Video's free 30-day trial will give you instant access to thousands of premium TV shows and movies.

View details

To get the free trial, click on the button above or head to the Prime Video website. Click on the big Start your 30-day free trial button. Then, sign in with your Amazon account.

Don't have one yet? Click on Create your Amazon account and follow the prompts from there. Once your Amazon account is up and running, continue to follow the on-screen prompts to get Amazon Prime.

You will have to enter your payment details, such as credit or debit card number and billing name and address to get access to the free period. Once the free trial period has ended, your account is automatically debited, so keep an eye on the end date if you're considering cancelling before being charged.

If you decide to stick around, Prime Video costs $6.99 per month to continue the service. That's relatively cheap in comparison to the competition.

Netflix will sting you $10.99 for its lowest-tier plan with SD streaming and 1 concurrent user. It's $16.99 for its mid-tier plan with HD streaming and 2 concurrent users. Prime Video's one and only plan allows you to stream on 3 separate devices at once in SD, HD or 4K/UHD depending on the title and the device you're streaming on. Plus, Prime Video has even more TV shows and movies combined than Netflix Australia.

Even Apple TV Plus is more expensive than Prime Video at $7.99 and you get a smaller content library.

What else does a Prime Video subscription give me access to?

Becoming a Prime Video member effectively makes you an Amazon Prime member as well. They are essentially the same subscription, just branded differently.

For the Prime Video sign-up price, you'll get free access to expedited delivery for Amazon products; "release-date" delivery for a range of games, music and video titles and expedited international delivery on orders over $49 from Amazon US. You also get discounted priority and residential express deliveries.

Subscribers also enjoy free access to Prime Music, Prime Gaming and Prime Reading.

What can I watch on Prime Video?

Prime Video offers a generous catalogue of TV shows and movies. To get started, check out our lists of the best Amazon shows and great movies available on the platform.

Highlights include The Boys, The Wheel of Time, Reacher, Back to the Rafters, The Expanse, The Marvellous Mrs. Maisel, Star Trek: Picard and Al Pacino hit Hunters.
