How to Watch

Members can watch Amazon Prime Video in English, with French, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish subtitled and dubbed versions also available for many titles.

Members can also download all movies and TV shows for offline viewing—that means watching on a plane, train, anywhere at no additional cost.

Prime Video members can also control how much data they use when streaming and download video by choosing between Good, Better, and Best visual quality settings, all of which utilize Amazon Prime Video’s state of the art video compression technology to use fewer data without reducing visual quality.

Amazon Prime Video’s automated and machine learning systems will also select the best streaming configurations for a given customer based on their device, location and Internet Service Provider, providing better visual quality and fewer interruptions even when internet connection speeds are slow or highly variable.

Amazon Fire TV or the Amazon Fire TV Stick, are great tools to own for your home entertainment system, and especially until now these devices were limited to Amazon Prime Video services, due to country restriction. However, with today’s update, these devices can be utilized to a new level for customers in the Balkans.

 

Price

Amazon Prime Video is now available in over 200 countries with a price of only 2.99 € per month, and as such is competing directly with Netflix that launched a while back with a monthly price of 7.99 € per month.
