Amazon Prime Video to launch in Italy this year - report

Monday 5 September 2016 | 15:37 CET | News
Amazon is set to launch its Prime Video platform in Italy by the end of November, according to unnamed sources cited by website DDay. The company is currently finalising the content to be included in the service, which is likely to cost EUR 7.99 per month, the same as in other EU countries such as the UK, Germany and Austria, said the sources. If confirmed, the service will launch around a year after Netflix debuted in Italy. The report added that Amazon's service will allow subscribers to download content for offline viewing, unlike Netflix.
