Amazon Prime Video: Six Tips for Enjoying Movie Streaming | Audio and Video

Prime Video arrived in the country in 2016 and, since last week, has been part of the Amazon Prime subscription benefits package in Brazil, priced at R $ 9.90. In addition to the attractive price, the service also has a collection advantage over its main rival, Netflix. According to a survey by video searcher Reelgood, Amazon's solution has an almost four times larger catalog of movies and about 17% wider in terms of series subscribers, so it may be worth it. Here are six tips for getting the most out of the platform.

Already a Prime Video subscriber can get a monthly fee by migrating to Amazon Prime, a benefit package that includes the film and series collection and adds other benefits like ebooks, music and free shipping on site purchases . The company has already started firing emails to the user warning about automatic migration, but if you have not yet received the notification, you have no problem making the change on your own. For this, simply make the manual registration in the new service. When making the exchange, the price of the plan drops from $ 14.90 to $ 9.90.

5. Streaming on Chromecast

The end of the fight between Amazon and Google in 2019 allowed Prime Video to finally become compatible with Chromecast. As a result, users of the service can stream content from mobile to TV even if it is not smart as long as the device running a version of Chrome is plugged into the HDMI port. Similar to other apps, such as Netflix: When you connect via Wi-Fi to your device, Amazon Prime on your smartphone becomes a remote control.

Unlike Netflix, Amazon does not charge more for accessing 4K content. Any subscriber can watch this format as long as the app is on a compatible device, such as smart TVs or conventional TVs with a Chromecast Ultra or Fire TV Stick 4K. To find Ultra HD material, type 4K in the search and use the Refine button to filter for movies only or series only.
