What is Amazon Prime Video?

Amazon Prime Video, or simply Prime Video, is an American subscription video on-demand over-the-top streaming and rental service provided by Amazon. It is available as a stand-alone service or as part of Amazon’s Prime membership.


The History of Amazon Prime Video

Amazon’s Prime membership includes access to Prime Video. Amazon launched an internet video service (Amazon Unbox) in 2006, but paid Prime members were given free access to unlimited, commercial-free instant streaming of more than 5,000 movies and TV shows in February 2011.



Hide a Movie or TV Show

You can conceal a movie or TV show from your suggestions if you have no interest in it and will never view it. Simply hover over the tile and pick Hide this movie/season from the drop-down menu. Other profiles will still see the content because it is unique to each profile. Additionally, it will still appear in search results. To make anything visible again, go to the top-right cog symbol and select Settings. Go to the Hidden videos page and select Don’t hide next to the video you want to see again.


View Content Leaving Prime Soon

Amazon develops original material that is only available through Prime, but it also licenses films and shows from other studios. Because of the way these contracts work, the content is only available for a limited period on Amazon Prime Video. To access this limited-time content, go to the main menu and select Categories, then Only for a limited time on Prime. If something is leaving soon, the date will appear on the tile and on the overview page as you hover over it (either with the date or as Leaves Prime in X days).


Share Prime Video With Someone

You can share your Amazon Prime subscription with one other adult if you have a full membership. This means someone else will be able to watch Amazon Prime Video for free. To do so, go to Amazon Households and select Add Adult from the drop-down menu. You’ll need their name and email address, as well as permission to exchange payment information by adding them to your Household. This is because you should only share your account with people you trust from your family, not as a simple way to divide the cost of a Prime membership with a friend. However, as long as you realize the security risk, there’s nothing stopping you from doing so.
