Amazon Prime Video now available in Costa Rica

Q COSTA RICA – Amazon has officially launched its video-on-demand service Prime Video in more than 200 countries and territories around the world, that includes Costa Rica.

This means Amazon’s streaming service is now available in more countries than Netflix, which launched in 130 new markets earlier this year.

Members can watch Amazon Prime Video in English, with French, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish subtitled and dubbed versions also available for many titles. Prime Video members can watch anytime, anywhere through the Amazon Prime Video app on Android and iOS phones and tablets, Fire Tablets, popular LG and Samsung Smart TVs or online at PrimeVideo.com —and can also download all titles to mobile devices for offline viewing—that means watching on a plane, train, anywhere at no additional cost.

The platform offers the possibility to select three different qualities of image, according to Amazon, using an advanced technology of video compression, in order to use less data without reducing the visual quality.

Subscribers can also download the content to view them offline, that is, when they do not have an Internet connection. This is an option Netflix incorporated weeks ago.

“We are excited to announce that starting today, fans around the world have access to Prime Video,” said Tim Leslie, Vice President, International, Prime Video, in a press release. “The Grand Tour and other critically acclaimed Amazon Original Series like Transparent, Mozart in the Jungle, and The Man in the High Castle, along with hundreds of popular Hollywood movies and TV shows, are now available at the introductory price of only 2.99 a month. And what’s really exciting is that we are just getting started.”

In early 2016 Netflix became the world leader in video on demand by extending its service to 190 countries.

Together, Netflix and Amazon Prime Video have invested about US$7.5 billion to create their own content more than some of their competitors like CBS, HBO or Turner, according to IHS Markit.
