Prime Video’s mobile-only subscription is much cheaper than the standard plan, which costs Rs. 599. In comparison, the standard pack costs Rs. 1,499 (up from Rs. 999). Let’s look at the features of the mobile-only plan.
Amazon Prime Mobile Subscription
The Amazon Prime mobile-only subscription offers fewer features compared to the standard version. Streaming quality is limited to 480p resolution, which is suitable for the smaller screen, while the standard plan offers 4K streaming quality. However, the mobile pack continues to offer access to Amazon Originals, live cricket and international movies. Additionally, subscribers get X-rays powered by IMDB and the ability to download them for offline viewing.
Now let’s talk about what’s missing. Customers subscribing to the Mobile Edition pack will not get free fast delivery on Amazon.in, ad-free music with Prime Music and Prime Reading. These features are Rs. 1,499 only available for the pack. In comparison, the top-tier plan supports multi-user profiles and streaming across devices in UHD. With a mobile-only plan, users can only access one account at a time.
Hotstar offers mobile-only subscription at Rs. 499, while the Netflix Mobile plan costs Rs. 149. However, Netflix does not have an annual plan for users in India.
