Indian Amazon Prime Video Outranks Netflix In The Online Video Streaming
With days moving on and data connections becoming more affordable, online video streaming is getting more popular in India. Youngsters are preferring online video platforms more than regular TV shows. And in this area Indian Amazon Prime Video beats Netflix. The subscriber base of Amazon Prime videos outranks global streaming giant Netflix.
However don’t think that Amazon Prime is in the 1st place in India in the Online Video streaming service category. Hotstar and Jio (Jio Cinema and JioTV) are still at the top spot. The main reason is that they offer free services. However their is a premium membership of Hotstar which costs around Rs. 199/month.
Amazon Prime vs Other Services
Both the Amazon Prime video and Netflix are premium services but the low pricing of the former makes is taking Prime service one step further. It was launched around a year ago at the cost of as low as Rs. 499 per year. However later it was increased to Rs. 999. This plan costs much less than what Netflix costs. The basic plan costs Rs. 500 per month.
The Amazon Prime service also allow users to get exclusive offers and discounts. The service also includes 2 day deliveries and early access to sales. The whole service makes it favorable for Indian users. In fact the Indian prime membership way too less than the International Amazon prime service. However we don’t have access to a large number of International shows and Audio Streaming. Amazon Prime video has around 10% market share in India right now.
