Amazon UK's two-day deal bonanza is upon us once again, hoping to take all your money before Black Friday can have its way with you. These events can be hit or miss, but there are a few good deals floating around, especially if you're looking to buy an Amazon-made device. I've delved into the depths of Prime Day to pull out a few of the better discounts for our readers on this side of the pond (the right side, in every sense).
With recent world events keeping us at home, it can be hard to stay connected with friends and family. Social events like going to movie theaters might not be an option right now, but that doesn't mean you can't watch a movie along with your favorite group of amateur film critics. Amazon is introducing a feature called Watch Party that lets groups of up to 100 Prime members view content together simultaneously.
The streaming service landscape is quickly becoming convoluted with every TV network, production company, and entrepreneur launching their own exclusive platforms. That's where ScreenHits TV wants to come in. The company will soon launch a service in the US and the UK that lets you aggregate Netflix, Disney+, Amazon Prime, HBO Go, BBC iPlayer, and more into one single interface and subscription.
Amazon is making a whole pile of children's content free to stream, even without a paid Prime membership. A selection that includes Amazon Prime original shows and PBS KIDS series. You will still need an Amazon account, though.
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, most people have to stay quarantined at home to prevent the spread of the virus. This is causing increased network usage, as people need a stable connection to work, study, and of course, entertain themselves. Sadly, the latter requires a high bandwidth, which providers are trying to contain by reducing the quality of their service.
Amazon has introduced a new perk for Prime members that offers exclusive mobile game content, and to start this new feature with a bang, Amazon has chosen PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Mobile as the first game to participate. The title's exclusive Prime content can only be claimed in-game, and you'll have to ensure you're on the latest version to participate. There are six loot drops total that will be available for PUBG Mobile, and this initial campaign will run until December, but only the first item (Infiltrator Mask) is currently available to Prime members, with the rest rolling out in the next three months.
LG had this bad streak last year in trying to spin the V30 ThinQ in as many different variants as possible. One of them was the V35 ThinQ, originally a $900 AT&T exclusive before it eventually hopped over to Amazon as a Prime Exclusive. If you, a Prime member, happen to desire a V35 for some reason, Amazon's gotten into some tempting as the phone is on a big discount right now.
Remember when you had to wait until Black Friday and Cyber Monday to stock up on cheap tech? Nah, me neither, and that's largely thanks to Amazon and the advent of Prime Day. Not only does Amazon discount its own hardware and tons of other stuff on its site, other retailers have had no choice but to join in. This means that Prime Day (confusingly, a two-day event) is a great time to find deals on the latest tech each summer — today and tomorrow, to be precise.
Amazon revolutionized online shopping and quickly became one of the most ubiquitous and successful businesses in the world. This is in part owed to it always being on the forefront of reinvestment without pausing to actually earn money. To get ahead of its retail competitors, the company announced that it's working on bringing free one-day deliveries to its Prime members during its earnings calls on Thursday.
