Amazon Video is now available in Taiwan.
The naming is a little odd: I guess it’s the same as Amazon Prime video, but you’re not actually an Amazon Prime member if you sign up for the video service only? It’s free for the first week, $2.99 USD/month for six months after that, and $5.99/month after that. I’m not sure what’s available or if the catalogue varies from country to country. I don’t really trust what I can currently see on Amazon’s website, because I’ve been burned too many times with that sort of thing before: “Watch this!” (Sign up.) “Sorry, in your region you can’t watch this!”
I’m very much in the Apple ecosystem and I don’t know what the best way is to get the stream from Amazon to my TV: perhaps via an iPad app, then mirrored to the Apple TV.
Anyone who’s already an Amazon Prime member should definitely have a look. I assume you’re already paying for it.
I’ll play with the week-long free trial in a few weeks, after the university semester winds down.
