FTFY

/month added to the title. It’s a bit misleading because while it’s technically correct it doesn’t reflect that the base Prime Video will still be “free” (included with Prime), albeit with ads.

A better title would be “Amazon adding ads to Prime Video, with a $2.99/month option to avoid them”.

Disagree, if ad-free was included with prime and now it’s an add-on, the title is perfect.
Watching with ads is terrible.

We agree that ads suck, but the current title doesn't indicate there will still be a free tier, albeit with ads.

I guess “Ad free” doesn’t give it away.

It doesn’t. It’s ad free now for free, and what’s being offered now for free will cost $2.99.

None of it is free, Prime costs money. Ad-free is an additional $2.99 when it used to be bundled with Prime.

Prime Video should have never been bundled in the first place. Lower the price back to $99 and offer Prime Video as an upsell.

What makes you think that's what made it go up in price?

You tell me.

Amazon spent ~$17B on Prime Video content last year.
It has ~148M Prime subscribers in the US. That's $115 per subscriber if you're focusing on their prime market.
It has ~200M Prime subscribers worldwide. That's $85 per subscriber if you're focusing on their worldwide market.

That's stats I did not know, interesting. I assume not enough people won't buy prime because of that price increase for them to care.

Obviously it's not public but it would be interesting to see how many of prime subscribers actually use prime video.

I do not
But a DDF/DDMS poll might be skewed
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

A better poll would be to ask, what prime benefits do you actually use?

Thinking about it I don't use anything else Amazon offers along it.

Ugh, that wasn’t my point. Ad free is free for prime subscribers. The $2.99/month tier will also be on top of prime.

From the title of this thread there is no indication it is discussing prime video
