What features are available on Amazon Prime Video?

Single Profile Only

As of now, Prime Video doesn’t have profiles for different members of your family. However, you can have different accounts for up to 5 family members.

As an Amazon Prime member you can create a Family Library with one additional adult and four children. While each user can have their own log-in, you will have to log out to access a different account.

Parental Controls

Apple TV+, Disney+, HBO Max, Hulu, Netflix, Paramount Plus, Peacock, SHOWTIME, and STARZ also have parental control features.

Up to 3 Devices

Amazon Prime Video allows you to stream up to three different titles at the same time using the same Amazon account, but the same title can only be streamed by two devices simultaneously.

Offline Downloads

Amazon Prime Video, which was one of the earliest to offer downloadable access to shows, limits 15-25 titles to be downloaded across all devices on your Prime Video account. There isn’t a limit to the number of devices, so long as they are tied to a Prime Video Account.

At this point, their Prime Video Originals catalog is available for download, as well as many in their library of movies and shows. Just like the others, you generally have 30 days to watch, with 48 hours after you first start streaming a show.

If you share your account with other members of your household, only the primary account can download content.

International Access

Depending on where you travel to, Amazon Prime Video will behave differently. If you go to country that has Amazon Prime Video, you will see the content catalog in that country. If you go to a country that doesn’t have Amazon Prime Video, you will only be able to access shows and movies you’ve already downloaded offline.


Originals

Prime Video has had a lot of critical success with their original series including The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Fleabag. They’ve also have popular originals like Jack Ryan, The Boys, and Homecoming which will each return for new seasons.

TV Shows

One of the main reasons to subscribe to Prime Video is to get access to old HBO shows. While these might eventually move to HBO Max, currently you can catch shows like The Sopranos, Deadwood, and The Wire with your Prime Video subscription.

Movies

Amazon Prime Video has the largest movie libraries with over 10,000 titles. This is almost three times the amount of films on Netflix.

Their selection of films change every month, including some newer films from indie film company A24. Prime Video even has original films that first appear in theaters like “Manchester by The Sea”, “The Big Sick”, and “Cold War”.

Kids

Just like Sesame Street is on HBO, Amazon Prime Video is the home for other PBS Kids series like Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood and Arthur.
