9 free Amazon Prime Video perks you probably didn't know about - all of which are free if you have a Prime membership

Prime Video is one of the best perks of having an Amazon Prime membership.
It houses thousands of movies and TV shows that can be streamed and downloaded for free, as well as titles that can be rented for a brief time period or purchased for permanent access.
It also has lesser-known features that can make it more valuable to you, like the opportunity to share access with another adult, accessibility options, and behind-the-scenes factoids that show up while you watch in real time.
Amazon's lightning-fast Prime shipping is great, but I'd wager I use Prime Video about three times as often throughout the course of a year. Find me at home in my pajamas, barreling through the latest season of "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" or rewatching "Fleabag."
And, aside from the very obvious perks of free, streamable TV shows and movies on Prime Video, there are a few other features worth knowing about - from parental controls to a la carte network subscriptions to built-in cinematic trivia and fun facts. Below, you can find a few of the lesser-known perks that go along with Prime Video.Advertisement
