Amazon Prime Video Follows Netflix Into Japan

Curated by

 

Amazon has announced it will bring video streaming to Amazon Prime customers in Japan, just days after Netflix announced it was partnering with a local telecommunications provider in the country. Amazon Prime is set to offer video streaming in Japan. Fresh off the news that Netflix is heading to the East Asian country next week, Amazon has revealed that its Prime Video service will also swoop into the Land of the Rising Sun.

 

 

  • American video-streaming services are like buses if you happen to live in Japan.
  • Netflix is all set to debut in Japan on September 2 , with Amazon Prime Video landing at some point next month — the U.S. firm hasn’t been specific on the exact launch date at this point.
  • In terms of pricing, Amazon’s service is available for free to existing Prime customers who pay ¥3,900 ($32) per year, that works out at around ¥325 ($2.70) per month, and get other perks related to Amazon shopping.
