What is Amazon Prime anyway?

There are different services that can be named Amazon Prime can connect - you book a corresponding one Amazon Prime trial month, you can test these for 30 days free of charge. The advantages include the free premium shipping of many products on the Amazon site, streaming of films and series via Amazon Prime Video / Amazon Video and the streaming of numerous music titles, albums and complete works by artists and bands via Amazon Music (including download for offline use). From my own experience I can say: it's worth it!

Amazon Video: Watch Movies Anywhere

At Amazon you can not only buy numerous films, series and documentaries on DVD and Blu-Ray, but also directly via the website and Amazon Video App stream. There are three different ways you can access the individual content:

  • Single purchase, for multiple streaming or downloading and offline film enjoyment
  • Rent and stream / download for a period of time
  • Book Amazon Prime and use a wide range of content including free content

In addition to this selection, you can play the digital content on numerous different devices in order to get it on the display, monitor and TV. In addition to Android tablets, the Kindle Fire HD and the iPad, you can also use an iPhone, an Android smartphone, the PlayStation 3 or 4, the Xbox 360 or Xbox One as well as the Nintendo Wii, the Wii U and other smart devices - including the Apple Mac, the iMac as well as the MacBook or a Windows PC.

Kindle lending library for reader and app

If you use a Kindle reader or the Kindle app on your iPhone, iPad or iPod, you can borrow numerous books and book series through Amazon Prime. This is cheaper than downloading the purchased version and gives you the same reading fun. I've often used the Kindle app for my smartphone - it's a good way to read a book when you're traveling or if you have to wait somewhere unexpectedly. And that without always having to have a book with you just in case;)

    Hello! We have 2 TV televisions. Our problem: From 23.00 p.m. we can only watch Amazon Prime on one TV.

      Hello Mr. Schröder! One Amazon Prime Video account is valid for two devices. Is it possible that someone else is using your access? If you ever change the password, the third person would have to be locked out. Otherwise, there's no reason why two TVs can't use Prime Video at the same time.

      Best regards!
