An Amazon Prime Video Subscription gives you access to some of the hottest shows and movies! Here’s the latest news!
Your uninterrupted Amazon Prime Video streaming may have a few small interruptions.
Starting in early 2024 Amazon Prime Video will be including limited advertisements during the shows that you stream. If you don’t want to see them, you’ll be able to choose the ad-free option for $2.99 a month.
A representative from Amazon Prime Video explained that this decision was to ensure the same great programming for the future and that these advertisements would be introduced in the U.S., U.K., Germany, and Canada in early 2024, followed by France, Italy, Spain, Mexico, and Australia later in the year.
There will be no changes to the current membership price and Prime members will receive an email several weeks before the ads are introduced as well as info about the ad-free option of $2.99 per month.

“I’m a little late to the game on this one, but I started watching The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and it’s so fun! It’s definitely not one to watch when the kids are anywhere near you, but it follows Midge Maisel as she becomes a successful comic in the 1950s! It will definitely make you laugh (and sometimes blush 😂) and you can’t help but love all the characters!” – Jenna
“I’ve been rewatching The Wilds (such a good Prime Original show for those who loved the early seasons of Lost), unfortunately, it was canceled during the pandemic, but it is AMAZING. The plot twists are next-level.” – Madison
“I LOVED The Summer I Turned Pretty! ❤️ #teamjeremiah” – Jenna
“We just watched LuLaRich, the documentary about the Lu La Roe craze. It was so fascinating but also heartbreaking for those who were scammed in it and lost so much. The owners of it are so interesting on camera and I didn’t realize that the company was still running today!” – Emily
“My wife and I started watching Mad Men! For those who aren’t aware: It’s a somber and realistic take on the advertising world in the mid-20th Century, but SO well acted and incredibly fascinating.” – Shane
“The first season of Upload was so good! It takes place in a futuristic world where those who die can upload their consciousness to a picturesque afterlife. The problem is that only the rich can afford the best version. After suddenly dying, the main character is uploaded by his wealthy girlfriend and soon discovers his death may not be an accident after all. It’s part love story and part mystery. I highly recommend it!” – Kara
