Amazon’s Prime membership is about to get a little more expensive starting tomorrow.
As we reported in early October, Amazon’s Prime membership is about to receive a price increase. The climb will start tomorrow, December 14th. Amazon had previously confirmed that the price of Amazon Prime membership in India would increase by up to 50%, which translates to roughly Rs 500 for the annual package. The rate increase will apply to all the different types of memberships offered by the company. Amazon will continue to offer access to Prime Video, Amazon Music, Prime Reading, and Prime Gaming under the same membership package. So with that in mind, the annual package will now cost Rs 1499.
For now, the price increase will not affect existing Prime members as they will continue with their current membership. Again, just to reiterate, no other services will be added to the existing ones with the price hike. The original plan was submitted for Rs 499, with a subsequent increase to Rs 999. This is the second time Amazon has increased the price of its Prime membership. The price hike will start at 12 a.m. M. From December 14, that is, tomorrow. From now on, you can still purchase the membership at the original price, so keep that in mind.
Amazon Prime Membership Price Increase Starts Tomorrow
Amazon’s affordable price in India is what has helped the platform maintain an edge over Netflix. With other OTT platforms like Disney + Hotstar, Voot, Zee5, and others offering annual plans that don’t exceed Rs 999, Amazon may end up seeing a drop in its subscriber base. To combat this, the platform is probably working behind the scenes to increase its content offering. Hopefully this means we’ll see an increase in content, and Family Man Season 3 will be released sooner rather than later!
