Amazon Prime Video seeks to gain a presence in markets such as India, the first country to launch this plan. This new rate gives a single user access to all content on the streaming platform for 28 days, at a price of 89 Indian rupees, what is 1 euro per month. It is launched in association with the operator Airtel and allows users to have access to a prepaid recharge to access this plan, which also includes 6 GB of data.

There is a second option associated with this plan, which includes unlimited calls and 1.5 GB of data per day, also available for 28 days. This second plan is priced at 299 Indian rupees, about 3.5 euros per month. Both plans allow content to be played on the streaming platform in SD quality.

This new Amazon Prime Video tariff in India is launched with a 30-day free trial for all Airtel prepaid users. It is an ambitious move by the streaming platform, which seeks to compete with Netflix in the country, which has been with a special plan only for smartphones for more than a year. The advantage is that the Amazon plan is cheaper and they have a large catalog.

For now, there appear to be no plans to launch this Amazon Prime Video mobile-only plan in other countries. Netflix was launching its own in various markets in Asia, so Amazon may do the same, but it doesn’t seem likely that it will end up launching in Europe anytime soon.
