Spawning from one of the worlds largest online marketplaces, Amazon capitalized on their popularity by releasing their own online streaming service. Making its introduction in 2006, it started as a benefit to the quick-shipping membership service Amazon Prime. Since then, it has branched off into its own service, with over 60 million subscribers.


Similar to other streaming services, they offer television series and movies and have recently begun releasing original content. With the access on almost any device, Amazon Prime Video offers the ability to stream up to 4K content on a large selection of the programming.
