Amazon Prime Video

Amazon's streaming video service Prime Video is now available in India. The service offers a healthy mix content — including recent Bollywood movies along with Amazon's original content like Transparent, The Grand Tour, The Man in the High Castle, and more.

If you're already a Prime subscriber in India, you'll be able to access Prime Video at no additional cost. A Prime subscription costs just ₹499 per year ($7.5), which comes out to less than $1 a month for Prime Video as well as all the benefits of the regular Prime subscription — early access to deals and free two-day shipping. That's a significantly better deal than Netflix, which costs anywhere between ₹500 and ₹800 a month. That's less than Hotstar as well, which costs ₹150 monthly.

While it's great that Prime Video is available in the country, you're short of options if you want to stream The Grand Tour on your TV. Prime Video isn't available for Android TV, and the app doesn't support the Cast protocol. You'll have to wait for Amazon to bring the Fire TV Stick — its version of the Chromecast — to India.

Amazon is set to invest $300 million to bolster original content to Indian subscribers, so stay tuned for new additions over the coming months. The company has tied up with Karan Johar's Dharma Productions, T-Series, Arka Mediaworks' SS Rajamouli and others to roll out local content.

Download Prime Video from the Play Store right now to see what's on offer. If you're already signed in to the Amazon app on Android, you'll be automatically signed into Prime Video, and can get started with watching shows right away.
