Amazon could become an internet service provider in Europe

 

Amazon is seemingly determined to make Amazon Prime the best $99/year you can possibly spend. Prime already offers two-day free shipping on Amazon.com, ad-free streaming on Twitch, and an entire catalog of movies and TV shows through Prime Video. According to The Information, Amazon could be gearing up to bundle internet service with Prime.

Although details are scarce, The Information believes Amazon is considering bundling internet access with Prime streaming in Europe. Why not in Amazon's home country of America, you ask? Because in some European countries, broadband providers are required to offer wholesale access to their network to competing companies. This is similar in principle to US operators offering wholesale wireless to MVNOs.

Amazon improves Prime Photos with Family Vault, including free unlimited photo storage for up to 5 members

Whoa, is Amazon on a roll these last few weeks or what! The company has been announcing new hardware, new services, improving existing offers, and more, all within the span of a couple of months. Today, it's Prime Photos' time, one of the free benefits that come with an Amazon Prime subscription. The service is getting a significant revamp and plenty of new options.

First, there's Family Vault which gives any Prime member the possibility to share their Photos perk with up to 5 family members. This means that the whole family can upload its photos manually (or they can set the app to automatically upload all photos) to the same Prime account.

Amazon adds Reading benefit to its Prime membership to satisfy the book and magazine nerd in you

There are a lot of benefits to being an Amazon Prime subscriber, other than the obvious free 2-day shipping. Beside Prime Video, Prime Music, and Prime Photos, the yearly plan caters to readers too by offering Audible Channels and a selection of free Audiobooks, Kindle First for a chance to buy an upcoming book before its official release, and Kindle Owners' Lending Library which is limited to one book a month and only works on Kindle and Fire hardware.

However, those benefits were still poor compared to the full Prime Video and Music access, and they didn't hold a candle to the separate Kindle Unlimited plan that offers access to hundreds of thousands of titles and Audiobooks.

Twitch Prime provides ad-free Twitch streaming and other goodies with your Amazon Prime subscription

Amazon has owned streaming giant Twitch since 2014, but besides a Fire TV app, you would be hard-pressed to find evidence of Amazon's handywork. Today that changes, with Twitch announcing their new premium subscription, Twitch Prime. And as you may guess from the title, it comes free with an Amazon Prime subscription.

To put it simply, Twitch Prime is a bit similar to YouTube Red. You get free game content every month (such as indie games or DLC), as well as discounts on new games sold by Amazon during the pre-order period and first two weeks of launch. As far as Twitch itself, you will get exclusive emotes and a chat badge, ad-free viewing, and a free channel subscription every 30 days.

Audible offers free Channels and audiobooks to Amazon Prime members

Audiobooks are a great way to 'read' when you're driving, cooking, or doing some other activity in which you want listen to something that isn't your favorite musical act. Good thing, then, that Audible is offering free streaming audio books and Channels to Amazon Prime members as part of the 'Prime Benefits' scheme.

The number of audiobooks is upwards of fifty, with the selection changing every so often, so there'll likely be something in that list for even the most picky of readers. In addition, Amazon is offering Audible's newest feature, Channels, to Prime customers, which includes things like ad-free podcasts, comedy shows, non-fiction, and narrated articles from some of the world's biggest and most well-known publishers.

[Update: 16GB gone] Deal: NVIDIA Shield and Shield Pro $50 off on Amazon, plus free 2nd gamepad

As part of Prime Day, NVIDIA is offering the Shield and Shield Pro on Amazon for $50 off their respective MSRPs, in addition to throwing in a free second gamepad (Shield's gamepad is, by the way, excellent). Normally, the cost of a Shield 16GB console with two gamepads would be $259 - today it's just $149. The 500GB Shield Pro with a second controller would normally be $359, but for Prime Day, it's $249. That's a heck of a deal, and while Shield promotions aren't exactly rare, they're usually either a flat discount or a free remote - this deal hasn't happened before, and offers the greatest net discount on the console and its accessories we've seen yet.

I'm going to use Amazon's "Prime Exclusive" $60 smartphone for a month

A $60 smartphone (or rather, $50 - but hold on) is basically a headline unto itself. It is a novelty solely because of its cost. And that makes talking about it in a way that doesn’t always use “yeah, but it’s only $60” as a reflexive crutch difficult. (Which is not to say I won't do that, because I will. Probably even in this post. Several times.)

BLU’s Amazon-supported R1 HD is far from the cheapest smartphone ever. And it’s far from being a revolutionary product - the only thing interesting about it is, frankly, the business model. And in particular, Amazon’s proposition that it being a nag on your lockscreen and in your app drawer is worth $50 if you’re already a Prime member.

[Deal Alert] Moto G4 16GB $124.99 and 32GB $154.99 with Amazon offers and ads for Prime members ($75 off)

The Moto G4 is about to launch in the US on July 12 for prices starting $199.99. However, you can get it much cheaper today if you are an Amazon Prime member and you don't mind seeing ads on your lockscreen. How much cheaper? How about $75 less? Yes, that covers 75% of the cost of a yearly Prime membership and puts the Moto G4 at a ridiculously cheap price.

This is possible thanks to Amazon's newly announced Prime Exclusive Phones venture, which basically subsidizes the price of new unlocked phones by putting Amazon apps and ads on your lockscreen. It's the Kindle Fire approach applied to non-Amazon devices.
