Amazon Prime Video launches globally in more than 200 countries for $6 per month, half price for first 6 months

The mass rollout represents a significant expansion for a service that has hitherto been restricted to just a handful of markets, including the U.S., U.K., Germany, Austria, and India. Amazon Prime Video is now available more or less globally, and sees Amazon go head-to-head with Netflix, which expanded its global footprint significantly back in January when it landed in 130 new markets. Amazon Prime Video will cost subscribers $3 (€3) per month for the first six months, before being hiked up to its normal price of $6 (€6). – Paul Sawers, VentureBeat
