Amazon Prime is an online benefit package from the online store that finally landed in Brazil this week. The company considers this the largest release ever made in a country due to the solution that competes with Netflix and Spotify for a more affordable value. This is a monthly subscription of $ 9.90 or an annual subscription of $ 89 that features videos, music, books and perks for online shopping on Amazon's website in one package. Some services are new, while others already existed, but were sold separately by the platform. Then understand all the benefits the plan offers and see if the investment is worth subscribing to Amazon Prime.

Another subscriber benefit is access to Prime Video, which promises a larger collection than Netflix. Companies do not disclose exact numbers, but recent research by the Reelgood streaming search service shows that Amazon has a wide range advantage, at least in the United States.
According to the survey, Prime Video has nearly four times more movies and about 17% more series than its competitor. The same study, however, points out that the good grade content volume on the IMDB site is equivalent across platforms. Amazon's exclusive material includes The Man in the High Castle, Transparent, Mozart in the Jungle and The Boys, as well as The Big Sick and Manchester by the Sea, both nominees or Oscar winners.
Current Prime Video subscribers will be automatically migrated to the new model in the coming days. The monthly fee of R $ 14.90 will be reduced to R $ 9.90, and the account will have immediate access to the other benefits of the subscription. According to Amazon, if an individual Prime Video charge was made recently, the difference in amount will be refunded to the card automatically.

The Amazon package also includes a Spotify rival. This is Prime Music, a music streaming platform with a collection of over two million tracks and thousands of playlists and stations to choose from with international and Brazilian music, including genres such as sertanejo, samba, pagode, forr and ax.
It is possible to expand the catalog to over 50 million songs, including major releases of the moment, by upgrading to Amazon Music Unlimited. The full version offers free trial for three months. After this period, the monthly payment is R $ 16.90 (R $ 169 for one year) in the individual plan or R $ 25.90 (R $ 259 for one year) in the family, with six bills.
Both modes of service are available on the Amazon Music app, compatible with iPhone (iOS), Android, macOS, Windows and Fire TV Stick. There is also an online version, accessible by the browser.

Prime Reading is a reading package that also accompanies the Amazon subscription. In a note to TechTudo, the company explains that customers are entitled to hundreds of revised ebooks and more from a revolving catalog. Titles can be accessed from the Kindle app for phones and tablets, as well as from the Kindle digital player. Some highlights from Amazon Prime ebooks are Other Ways to Use the Mouth, by Rupi Kaur, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, by JK Rowling, Dream Dealer by Augusto Cury, and The Best by Mario Sergio Cortella .
Just like Prime Music is for Music Unlimited, Prime Reading is for Kindle Unlimited: for an additional $ 19.90 subscription, the player releases a much larger collection of over 1 million books. The service offers 30 days free tasting.

Amazon has several promotions daily, and some of them have exclusive access to Prime members. Offers change periodically. In its debut month, the company will offer discounts for products from brands such as Acer and HyperX, as well as Amazon devices, such as the Fire TV Stick media center. Special price items carry the Prime Offer of the day or Prime Exclusive offer seal.
Twitch Prime is another benefit that was previously marketed separately and is now included in the Amazon Prime subscription. The service is the premium version of Twitch TV, a streaming platform focused on electronic games, including live and on-demand gameplay and esport championship video.
In addition to watching content, subscribers have access to many benefits such as cashiers, skins and other gaming rewards, as well as totally free titles. It is also free to store broadcasts for later viewing, customize the look of the chat and subscribe to a channel per month, which allows you to remove ads and gain other advantages during broadcasts.
