Amazon Prime users can now access content streaming service Prime Videos in India. Amazon’s catalog that blends together regional content with its popular original shows can be accessed via Android and iOS apps (coming soon) or from your browser.

Since the subscription cost is included in the 1-year prime membership, Amazon Prime Videos becomes the cheapest video streaming service in India priced at 499 per year or less than 50 rupees per month.

Amazon has already partnered with local content players like Dharma production, T-Series, Vishesh Films, Green Gold Animation, Japan’s TV Asahi Corporation and many others. Recently, it also announced a new partnership with filmmaker SS Rajamouli, Graphic India and Arka Mediaworks for a multi-episode animated Bahubali series for prime members. Amazon is also in the race to acquire IPS streaming rights which could make it an instant hit amidst sports audience.

We could spot some recent Indian blockbusters like Sultan, Kapoor and Sons and Kabali in the Media Library as well. Hollywood titles and shows are rather dated, but considering the price, the content should suffice for now. Besides, since its Amazon, we do expect the library to grow rather aggressively in the near future.

Amazon also has content lined up in many other regional Indian languages besides Hindi and English. Subtitles for English language shows are present in multiple regional languages as well. You can also download TV Shows and Movies in different resolutions and watch them later.

For now, Prime Videos is an added bonus for Prime members.
