According to a press release, Amazon Prime Video is now available in Nigeria, the continent’s largest market. A few days ago, Amazon announced plans to increase its investment in local production in new countries like Africa, releasing a slate of localised originals (in the works) and providing cheap Amazon Prime membership packages to consumers.
As part of its global expansion in more than 200 countries, Amazon Prime Video debuted in Africa in 2016 as part of its global drive, putting Netflix in a tough position. As a result, there has never been a local-language interface, subtitles, or original material accessible in the region’s editions of the service.
There was a time when it was only available in the United States and Europe, but that is no longer the case in Africa. Streaming of The Boys and other unique content from the Prime Video ecosystem may be found via a tweet from the official Prime Video Naija account. After a seven-day trial period, clients will pay a monthly fee of 2,300. As a result, Nigerian Prime Video subscribers will be able to pay for their subscriptions in Naira for the first time, eliminating the need for a VPN to access the platform’s international content.
“Gangs of Lagos,” a local original criminal action thriller that chronicles the lives of three friends in Isale Eko, Nigeria’s commercial capital, is set to premiere this year, Amazon has announced.
