    How can they justify that yearly hike from 79 to 95 ?

    Maybe they've started paying their taxes?

    Strange that here in France it's going up from €49.99 to €69.99 (approx £59....).
    Given the amount I buy from Amazon, and it's pretty extensive Firestick film etc choice, that's not too bad.

    The next day deliveries are a good but I don’t really use Prime TV very often. Probably not worth it for me when I can just order things off someone else’s account.

    They say they set the Prime fee in 2014 and haven't increased it since - until now.

    I started paying for Prime in January - initially one of their regular free trials but this time didn't cancel at the end. Not sure I will continue with it. The next day delivery is useful, but I got on fine before. Prime TV has got some gems that I used to binge watch on free trials, but now watch when I want. Can go back to annual binge watching. I don't use the other 'benefits' they keep telling me (by email) that I'm missing out on. I can't listen to any more music than I do now!

    First price increase since 2014, still really good value when you consider the array of stuff that comes with it, and the fact that things like Apple Music/Spotify Premium are £10 a month on their own, Netflix another £12-£14 a month

    Oh I forgot about the Music, we have the speakers in most rooms ( handy for making announcements like " tea's on the table " ) and they are always playing music, my daughter 3 years ago wanted Spotify for christmas, She was happy with Prime music unlimited ( which we might pay extra for ? ? )

    You get access to the entry level Amazon Music (same as Spotify Basic) for free with Prime. If you want Amazon Prime Unlimited, it's an extra £8.99 a month (£9.99 for non Prime members)

    A 12.5% increase in the monthly price, but a 20% increase in the annual price.

    I prefer Apple Music to both tbh, seems much less clunky to me than Spotify, but obviously requires an Apple device, so not for everyone

    £16 over a year for free delivery and free TV shows/movies? You could spend that on one film.
