Amazon has some big news for its Prime Video subscribers! In September, the tech giant hinted that ads would soon make their way into its streaming service, and now it’s official. Starting January 29, 2024, Prime Video will include limited advertisements in its movies and TV shows. But don’t worry; if you prefer to keep your ad-free experience, Amazon will offer an ad-free option for an additional $2.99 per month.
This move is aimed at helping Amazon invest in even more exciting content for its viewers while giving advertisers a chance to connect with the Prime Video audience. To help manage these new ads, Amazon has partnered with IPG Mediabrands, opening the doors for brands to engage with Prime Video viewers in multiple countries.
