Amazon Prime monthly subscription is now a reality

Amazon Prime membership, until now, has been a yearly service. Users have been able to subscribe to it for a payment of $99 per year, which is good for most, if they intend to take full advantage of the services, such as Amazon Prime Video, Prime Music, Prime Storage and free two-day shipping in Amazon purchases. However, users of the Amazon Fire TV 4k, or any other TV box or device able to run Amazon Prime Video, might find an advantage on subscribing for less than one year. This wasn't possible until some days ago, when Amazon Prime monthly subscription became a reality. Is it advantageous to get Amazon Prime monthly subscription only for video, though, with so many other ways available in order to watch your favorite content? [Read: Did Amazon block Kodi?

Amazon Prime monthly subscription: a better deal?

Amazon Prime monthly subscription is a tad more expensive than the full yearly membership; however, it offers more flexibility now. You can have the service only when you know you will use it the most; and you can choose whether to pay Amazon Prime per month, or only limit your subscription to Amazon Prime Video, which makes it a cheaper alternative for shorter periods of time, but does not give you the additional advantages in shipping, storage, and music.

Still, if you want to try out Amazon Prime Video, the Amazon Prime monthly membership makes it now easier than ever to do so.
