  • How Amazon Prime Video Rankings Work – The ranking system for Amazon Prime Video is determined by feedback from customers who have either rented or bought a movie or show on the platform.

This ensures that the ratings and reviews are based on genuine experiences from viewers who have actually watched the movie! No fake reviews here.
  • Exclusives – Despite Netflix being Amazon Prime’s biggest competitor in terms of market share, Prime Video boasts the largest selection of streamable content among all other services. Moreover, Amazon Prime features plenty of exclusive movies that are only available on its platform.
  • Free Trial – Amazon offers a free 30-day trial when you first sign up, and you can easily cancel before the 30 days are up to avoid having to pay for the next month.
  • Cost of Amazon Prime Video – Amazon Prime TV in Australia is only $6.99 per month, which is about half of its competitors. There is only one subscription type for Prime Video (similar to the Disney+ subscription model). You can also choose a year subscription, for $59 paid upfront
