Amazon Prime Video Ads Opt-Out Option and Pricing

The company will provide an opt-out option for these ads by paying a small additional fee, specifically $2.99 extra per month. In the United States, the subscription costs $139 per year or $14.99 per month. In Spain, the subscription is notably more affordable at 4.99 euros per month or 49.90 euros per year, suggesting that the monthly increment to enjoy ad-free content might not be as steep.

Industry Trend and Financial Implications

This move sees Amazon joining the latest trend in the streaming industry, seeking to alleviate the mounting expenses encountered by all platforms recently. Over the past months, platforms like Disney Plus, HBO Max, Netflix, and the American platforms Hulu and Paramount Plus have announced price hikes or implemented measures to deter multiple users from sharing a single subscription, such as prohibiting account sharing.
