Amazon adding ads to Prime Video in 2024 unless you pay $2.99 extra

Article note: Just like the descent of Cable from "Paid so ad free" to "You pay more and ALSO we advertise to you and bundle and rentseek in every other way that is possible and legal." the same bullshit is going down in the Streaming market. Everyone who can will just go back to piracy as the service gets worse.

Next year, watching TV shows and movies on Amazon Prime Video without ads will cost more than it does now. In early 2024, Amazon will show ads with Prime Video content unless you pay $2.99 extra.

Amazon announced today that Prime Video users in the US, Canada, Germany, and the UK will automatically start seeing advertisements "in early 2024." Subscribers will receive a notification email "several weeks" in advance, at which point they can opt to pay $2.99 extra for ad-free Prime Video, Amazon said.

That takes the price of ad-free Prime Video from $8.99/month alone to $11.98/month and from $14.99/month with Prime to $17.98/month.
