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?
