Entertainment for the night

Amazon Prime Video for mobile platforms is an amazing video-streaming app, which literally plays the role of your personal and portable cable TV.

It has agreements with such channels as HBO and features such extremely popular titles as:

  • Boardwalk Empire;
  • Deadwood;
  • Game of Thrones;
  • OZ;
  • Six Feet Under;
  • The Sopranos;
  • The Wire;
  • Veep.

And further access includes the availability of:

  • Chuck;
  • Hannibal;
  • Justified;
  • Mr. Robot;
  • Parks;
  • Recreation.

With no additional fees charged!

Besides, Amazon Video provides access to its originally produced shows: Catastrophe, Electric Dreams, The Man in the High Castle, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, One Mississippi, Patriot, Red Oaks, Sneaky Pete, The Grand Tour, The Tick, and many others.

It could serve as a wonderful alternative to a cable TV provider. Furthermore, Prime Video has an intriguing feature: whenever you discover that a particular show/series can't be accessed through the service, you can rent or buy it directly in the application, which makes it somewhat similar to iTunes.

Amazon employs its unique approach and apart from its central content also gives you the key to the avalanche of local/regional content. For instance, India's residents may enjoy hundreds and thousands of Bollywood movies: Sultan, Baar Baar Dekho, Kabali, etc.

Besides, you may appreciate Amazon Prime Video for its "fist dosage free" policy, since the first episode of almost every show can be viewed for free, to let you understand if you want to go on with it or ditch it. If a particular movie/series has managed to produce a strong, lasting impression and you want to know more about what inspired it, who the director is and which actors play the lead roles - the app has the Internet Movie Database integration. Additionally around 350 titles have audio descriptions provided by Amazon a token of politeness and appreciation.

Moreover, you can stream the content on the bigger screen: the American residents can transmit the signal from the app to their Apple TVs of the second generation and later.

Last, but not least there's the Parental Control feature to guard your children from inappropriate, undesirable content; extra-safety measures to keep your bank card info secured; record-a-show option; autoplay, pausing and playlist making and so forth.


Amazon Prime Video has a load of awesome and popular TV-shows and series and also broadcasts NFL games. It comes at $12.99 monthly ($119 annually), but students have a privilege to get it for only  $6.49 monthly or $59 annually.

As for the rest its entertainment catalogue is quite impressive, new shows are being added regularly and the only genre category insufficient in content is cartoons/anime. At the same time its rent/buy a movie feature, parental control, recording, IMDB integration etc. make it a pretty useful application. Download it for your Android, iOS or Kindle devices.
