We know that Netflix is the king of streaming. However, there are many other platforms that are producing new original content that should be reviewed and that can give a break to the signature that can already be seen in Netflix content. In the Golden Globe awards, for example, Prime Video, Amazon's streaming platform, received nine nominations. Although slowly, Prime Video is making its way into the world of streaming and television, now not only as a distributor but also as a producer. You can have access to the platform if you are an Amazon Prime subscriber, if not, you can become a subscriber for approximately $ 3 per month in Latin America (monthly fees may vary depending on the location). Like all platforms, Prime Video offers a free 7-day trial. Here is our list for you to be encouraged to give a chance to other platforms.
