Amazon Prime Video is Free for Kids!
Amazon has done the unthinkable by offering kid-friendly movies and TV shows for absolutely free of cost via Prime Video.
Due to the COVID-19 epidemic, which has trapped families at home, Amazon Prime Video has gone ahead and made the aforementioned content available to all Amazon users, including Amazon’s original content and a selected few third-party movies and TV shows.
Amazon has stated it will continue increasing its content offerings as more deals are made with studio partners. Even though the content is free for people around the world, the content varies from one country to another due to licensing agreements. So if you are looking for something not available in your region, then you will need an Amazon Prime VPN to change your IP address from a region where it is easily available.
For now, the content available for free is for preschool and younger school going kids. The selection of content does not include recently released movies or box office hits that parents could enjoy, but there is no denying that the content would help parents keep their kids entertained while they work from home in peace.
It is worth noting, Amazon only offers free content to Prime subscribers. But in this case, anyone can take advantage of the free content by simply creating an Amazon account. If you do not already have one, create an account today!
At the moment, the free service in the US includes the following Amazon Originals:
- Big Diaries
- Creative Galaxy
- Costume Quest
- Pete the Cat
- Tumble Leaf
- Lost in Oz and more.
As for licensed content with the service in the US, here is what you will get:
- Postcards from Buster
- Knight Squad
- Rugrats All Grown Up
- Design Squad
- Nature Cat
- Ready Jet Go!
- Wild Kratts and more.
It is worth noting Amazon is not the only one making efforts to offer as much free content as possible. Sling TV launched its very own free streaming that comes with news, entertainment, and kids’ content. Hulu is giving its on-demand service users free live TV news, while big studios are finding ways to make up for lost ticket sales. NBCU for instance, recently stated that it will bring Emma, The Invisible Man, and The Hunt to viewers at home. Just like Prime Video, if either of these platforms is unavailable, be sure to use a VPN to appear as though you in the US.
