Amazon Prime Video is a streaming service for movies and series offered by the online retail giant Amazon. Via the Amazon Premium subscription of 49 euros per year, that is to say 4 to 5 euros per month, it allows access to free delivery in one working day in metropolitan France. With it, subscribers can watch all the movies and series included in its catalog on an unlimited basis.
In case they order books, the one business day delivery during the trial period still costs 1 euro cent. In this subscription, the first 30 days are in fact offered on all the services offered by the Amazon Premium subscription. Also, on Amazon Prime Video, movies in V.O, with French subtitles or recent series are available. For subscribers aged 18 to 24, Amazon Premium offers a discount of up to 24 euros. For those who prefer monthly subscriptions, this is also possible for the modest sum of 5.99 euros.
Android TV is a small device, a microcomputer with which to make a digital TV “intelligent”. As its name suggests, it was created by the Net Giant, after Google TV which was not very successful. It is a multimedia platform, available directly through connected TVs and boxes such as Nexus Player, Freebox Mini 4K and Shield Android TV. The BBox Miami also integrates Android TV, this, since October 2015. Currently, the device is also available on a number of smartphones, tablets and connected watches.
Using the Android TV, you can connect your TV to the Internet to listen to music or watch movies on YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, etc. You can also use it to play games, in short, do everything you’re used to doing on your Android phone.
Even though the two net giants, Google and Amazon are fierce competitors, they bury the hatchet in their partnership on Amazon Prime Video and Android TV. It’s a good thing, because users are looking for one thing: unlimited access to their favorite TV shows, series and movies, either in the comfort of their home or on their connected devices.
As one of the top streaming providers today, Amazon has a vested interest in sticking with it, as the Android TV operating system is one of the ways it is reaping the benefits. Users can’t help but benefit from it, since all kinds of movies and series are available on the Amazon Prime Video catalog. Moreover, its subscriptions are available in many countries around the world, including France, where the Android operating system is one of the most widely used.
