Amazon prime video now available in Canada

If you are already amazon prime, it's included in your subscription

Can't wait to watch the man in the high castle season 2 Friday
Another great show from them is mad dogs

Btw nothing like Netflix all the Prime Original content plus about 60 some movies. All older stuff like American Pie and The Mummy. Guess that's all we get as Canadians, heh.

But if you already have prime, it's a bit more for your bucket.

Good news, thanks OP!

Strange I didn't get any heads up from Amazon considering I'm a Prime member.

Let's wait and see what content it's providing before trying it out.

Signing up is tempting because of this and their free bear...

If you use a smart DNS to make it look like you're in the US, you will get a much better movie/tv show selection. Doesn't matter that your Prime is through Amazon.ca

I logged in to PrimeVideo.com through my browser on my PC and I get all the Prime Original content plus about 60 some movies. All older stuff like American Pie and The Mummy. Guess that's all we get as Canadians, heh.

However on my Nvidia Shield i have a Smart DNS service set up so that it looks like I am in the US/UK (depending on the service). So when I sign into the Amazon Video app, I get access to the Amazon Original content plus a much better movie/tv show selection.

Edit: NVM, thought it stopped working, but it was an issue on my end. This still works fine ^^^

I don't recommend trying it right now. I have prime, and from what I see it has Amazon Original Series and old movies/tv shows (like the ones you see in shomi).

Free 30-day Amazon Prime trial via Amazon's video streaming service, PrimeVideo. TRIAL WILL WORK EVEN IF YOU HAVE PREVIOUSLY USED AN AMAZON PRIME TRIAL OFFER.

Sign up for your free trial: https://www.primevideo.com/
CDN $79/year after free trial. Cancel anytime. *Quebec residents receive an initial 13-month membership for CDN $79, instead of a free trial. Website and apps in English only. French subtitles or dubbing available for many titles.

Click the link below to learn how to cancel renewal of your Prime account, so you will not be billed. You will still be able to use your Prime membership for the duration of the trial:
https://www.amazon.ca/gp/help/customer/ ... =201514690

Perfect for Holiday shopping.

Hopefully the selection will grow. I do have Getflix DNS service lifetime subscfiption though, so will give it a try. Regardless, I have Prime because I shop there a lot and I feel it is worth it. Their unlimited photo storage sucks though. It lacks sync capabilities, which is a deal breaker to me. Who whants to reupload every time photos added? I hope they will fix it eventually. Meantime I stick with iCloud and Google backup.

I signed up for Prime a couple of days ago just to get the teddy bear free, and was planning on cancelling due to low value. But between diaper discounts and video now, I think there's just enough value to keep it (I don't care about fast shipping most of the time).

Thanked!
