Report: Amazon Launching Standalone Video Service For $9; Allowing Monthly Prime Access For $11

[T]he Amazon standalone streaming service will go for $8.99/month, a full dollar less than the Netflix monthly rate. The timing is perfect to undercut Netflix, as that service is in the process of getting rid of the $7.99/month price that had been grandfathered in for many customers. Amazon Prime currently goes for $99/year, which means Prime subscribers are only paying $8.25/month for access to the streaming video library plus all the other benefits. However, it also means you have to plunk down all that money at once and you’re pretty much locked in for the 12 months. – Chris Morran, Consumerist
