Just over a week ago, the new app for Amazon Prime Video on Windows 10 went live in the Microsoft Store. The app appeared to have still been in private testing, however, as logins did not work.
That’s all fixed with 184.108.40.206-Release, which is now live and working.
Amazon Prime Video rivals Hulu, Netflix, and HBO Max for online streaming and movie playback. Like those other content providers, Amazon has been aggressively building its own original content to lure new subscribers to the service.
- Download videos to watch offline – anywhere, anytime.
- Rent or buy thousands of titles including new release movies, popular TV shows, and more (not available in all countries/regions).
- With Prime Video Channels, Prime members can subscribe to more than 150 premium and specialty channels like HBO, SHOWTIME, STARZ, and Cinemax. Only pay for the channels you want, no cable required, cancel anytime (not available in all countries/regions).
- With X-Ray, view IMDb information about the actors, songs, and trivia for videos as you stream.
Under Settings, users can pick between good, better, and best for offline video support, with best requiring 2.4GB of space per hour of media.
For those with Movies Anywhere (U.S.) or have purchased movies from Amazon, you can also watch your entire catalog. Users can also easily rent new movies to watch on their computers or other Amazon Prime-enabled devices.
On our initial test, video playback quality looked decent, but it was not quite Netflix-level. Still, we are not complaining, as any support for Windows 10 PCs is welcomed for these services. Hopefully, HBO and Disney will follow.
Thanks, Chris W., for the tip!
