SEATTLE, Wash. (The Verge)—Amazon has officially launched its video-on-demand service Prime Video in more than 200 countries and territories around the world, including Armenia. The retailer suggested it would be doing so earlier this year, but the launch is now official, with Prime Video available at an introductory price of $2.99/€2.99 a month in numerous markets.
This subscription rate is good for half a year, after which the price rises to $5.99/€5.99 a month. The subscription is bundled in to Amazon Prime where available, and there’s also a free seven-day trial for those that want to test it out first.

This means Amazon’s streaming service is now available in more countries than Netflix, which launched in 130 new markets earlier this year. In both cases, though, the big missing market is China — which keeps a tight control on its internet and of Western cultural imports.
