Amazon Prime Video review
Amazon Prime Video is an application that offers value that can be compared with Netflix providing quality video content at a rather affordable price. This is probably one of the best streaming services. Enjoy it in almost 200 countries in the world, viewing shows and movies and downloading them with Wi-Fi connection. It does not replace the cable TV.
The service does not deliver viewing options, and that may be frustrating. In addition, its interface is not very user friendly; that is why a user can face difficulties with navigation. Though, the content is arranged in tiles and filed in accordance with categories. Thus, you can find the offer easily.

There is a rich choice of media content here, and you are free to choose anything you like. The Amazon Video offers an interesting video library enlarged on an on-going basis. You are suggested to watch blockbusters on the widescreen. Here you get the added data about the engaged actors or take part in the engrossing trivia within X-Ray.
It is not possible to view series, sports, local news in real time, but you can sign up for a range of channels and watch them under the condition that you have a digital antenna installed.
