Dear Amazon Prime Member,
We're pleased to announce some exciting upgrades and changes to your Amazon Prime membership. Since 2008 we've increased the number of items eligible for Unlimited One-Day Delivery from 1 million to over 7 million, in addition to adding over 500,000 books to the Kindle Owners' Lending Library for you to borrow. Now we're making Amazon Prime even better.

Your Amazon Prime membership will include Amazon's new Prime Instant Video streaming service beginning February 26, 2014

Prime Instant Video - Britain's largest subscription streaming service - will give you instant and unlimited access to over 15,000 digital movies and TV episodes. Watch instantly, anywhere by streaming from Amazon.co.uk or via hundreds of compatible devices from Kindle Fire, iPhone and iPad to smart TVs, Blu-ray players and games consoles.

Prime Instant Video will give you unlimited access to popular TV shows like Dexter and Prison Break, exclusive movies such as The Hangover: Part 2 and Friends with Benefits, and exclusive hit TV shows like Vikings and The Walking Dead. There will always be something great to watch with new titles added every week.

As a valued Prime member you will be able to start streaming videos at no additional cost beginning February 26, 2014 and your Prime annual fee will not change until you renew. After that, your membership will continue for the new price of just £79 per year (passing on £41 in annual savings compared to adding a separate streaming membership).

If you have questions, we are always happy to help. You can contact us via email, phone or chat from the Help section of Amazon.co.uk.

Thanks for being a Prime member,

The Amazon Prime team

Nope, I am too, but from the 'free' stuff on offer, will the extra cost for the streaming content outweigh the increase in cost .......

Good point... with all these companies offering media streaming - I wonder which ones will last.
Given Amazon have one of the largest hosting platforms in the world, I am guessing the others will suffer, but its early days yet.

But I won't hold my breath ....

I used to pay 16 pm for lovefilm over 6 years ago... to get it free now, with an awesome streaming service is ... well... awesome...
It truly negates the need for sky if you don't watch sports. Compliments freeview very well.
Amazon prime is worth its weight in gold, just for home deliverys
To get cold is a joke, I love it so much I just subscribed to Netflix too, breaking bad is worth it alone.
I used to work in a video shop and people who loved films would come and rent 2-3 per night... at 6-9 quid. people need to get a grip, and stop comparing to illegal means of watching films, if we all go rob for a living, that would also make things cheaper, however, some of us want to sleep at night.

Ok... Here is an alternative thought!

I have no interest what so ever in LoveFilm, so I will now be paying £30 more for something I do not want. COLD!!!

also, the only android tablet that can use this is Amazon's own hardware.

in 12 months time you will... (or 11 months for me)... so for the next 12 (or 11 months) you get exactly what you paid for in the first place IE amazon prime, plus this lovefilm streaming for FREE. if you don't want to pay increase in price just for prime, cancel in 12 months... (or 11 for me)

The fact is its free for something you already decided 49 quid was worth it, this is FREE on top... FREE is free how can it not be hot hot hot... I thought this was hotukdeals... not COLD uk deals, just because I wont use it principle is not the point, its not a popularity site, its a DEAL site, and this is FREE, as it affects the people who already paid for a standard service and got a FREEbeee lol lol

pat-w

Another reason to have APPLE products!... works seamlessly, with Ipad, and IPhone... along with Apple TV to your TV and through my smart TV's apps, etc

FREE is good.

How do you work that out, it says when membership is next due it will increase to £79, mine is due for renewal very shortly!!!!

I was under the impression, most people had a few months lagging for 49 renewal, when is your renewal out of interest?

Open a live chat with one of their support reps, and they'll let you do it for one more year at £49 if you ask nicely and say that you would otherwise cancel.

Then, over the next year, they may change the price, as a lot of people may not be happy to renew at the higher price, and they won't be prepared to do the one-off discounts
