Amazon Prime now costs more: How does it compare to other streaming services?

Amazon Prime Logo

Until now, Amazon Prime has been one of the lowest costing major subscription services at just $6.99 per month.

However, TV fanatics will be upset to hear that Amazon has just announced that it’s increasing its price by $3 per month to $9.99 from June.

Ultimately $3 a month isn’t much. The subscription does include access to Amazon Prime Video, fast Prime delivery and free international delivery from Amazon.

So, more importantly, how does $9.99 per month compare with other streaming services?

Overall, even with the price increase, Amazon Prime still costs about the same, if not less than the other big streaming platforms such as Netflix and Disney+.
