Image and audio quality
Prime Video provides audiovisual content in various resolutions, according to user connection capability and screen compatibility. In the best case scenario, the user will have access to 4K material plus Dolby Digital 5.1 channel sound or Dolby Atmos. The interesting thing here is that all of these features are part of Amazon's basic subscription, while rival services like Netflix offer high quality video only on the most expensive plans.
Amazon's Prime Video finds competition in the streaming market in Brazil, made up of names like Netflix, HBO Go and even YouTube. Amazon's great asset is to offer Prime as an item in a complete package of online shopping services, so it is unmatched by Netflix or HBO Go.
Another aspect that makes the Amazon platform more attractive than the subscription, for $ 9.90, gives access to 4K streaming for an affordable price. However, the service lags behind in terms of content, which can displease the user when choosing which streaming to subscribe to.
