It was a long time coming but as of June 2018, Amazon Prime Video 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, you also get to take advantage of bonus features like free delivery on Amazon purchases.

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 without paying a cent.

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

You will have to enter your payment details, such as credit/debit card number, billing name and address, in order 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 do 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 $7.99 for its lowest-tier plan with SD streaming and 1 concurrent user. It's $13.99 for its mid-tier plan with HD streaming and 2 concurrent users. Prime Video's one and only plan allows you to stream on three separate devices at once in SD, HD or 4K/UHD depending on the title and the device you're streaming on.

It is important to also note that Prime Video has even more TV shows and movies than Netflix Australia.

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. In fact, they are essentially the same subscription, just branded differently.

For the Prime Video sign-up price, you'll also get access to two-day delivery for Amazon products; free "release-date" delivery for a range of games, music and video titles; access to over 1,000 Kindle ebooks; and free international delivery on orders over $49 from Amazon US. Subscribers also enjoy a premium experience on Twitch and free access to Prime Music.

Highlights include The Marvellous Mrs. Maisel, Star Trek: Picard and Al Pacino hit Hunters. If you're a cricket fan, make sure not to miss top-notch Aussie documentary The Test.
