Amazon Prime Video launches subscription-free video store in Australia
Amazon Prime Video Store is a new video entertainment service that provides access to new-release movies and classic blockbusters without paying a monthly subscription.
Amazon has launched a new online video store in Australia that is set to complement its existing Amazon Prime Video service. Similar in concept to iTunes and Google Play, the platform allows customers to rent or buy movies of their choosing, with prices starting at $4.99.
You don't need to be an Amazon Prime member to access the Prime Video store and the service does not require a subscription. This means you only pay for what you actually watch.
Interestingly, the titles on offer include a range of Disney and Marvel movies which were previously exclusive to Disney+. Other studio partners include Warner Bros., Sony, Paramount, NBCUniversal, Madman and Lionsgate.
Here's a list of some currently available movies:
- Maleficent: Mistress of Evil
- Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again
- How to Train Your Dragon: Hidden World
- Pitch Perfect 3
- A Quiet Place
- Toy Story 4
- Johnny English Strikes Again
- Deadpool 2
- Sonic the Hedgehog

In addition to new release movies, the service also has a large back catalogue of popular films from the past few decades. You can also browse by genre. Available categories include Science-Fiction, Action, Family, Horror, Fantasy and Documentary.
Customers can browse and view movies via the Amazon Prime Video "Store" tab via select Smart TVs, Android devices, iPhones and game consoles.
If you currently subscribe to Amazon Prime Video, many of the available Video Store titles are already included in your membership. (So be sure to check whether a movie is available on-demand before renting it.)
