Amazon Prime Video Finally Available in Ireland

Amazon announced this morning that Amazon Prime Video is now available in Ireland. The tech giant has also extended the service’s availability to over 200 countries.

The service will cost €2.99 / month in Ireland for the first 6 months, but will rise to €5.99 / month after.

For now the service will only offer access to Amazon’s original content, but that slate is pretty good and is constantly expanding. Shows available via the video streaming service include The Grand Tour from Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May (currently the top-rated TV show on IMDb with an overall rating of 9.4 and over 20,000 votes) and award-winning Amazon Original Series like The Man in the High Castle, Transparent, Mozart in the Jungle, Tumble Leaf and more.

To access the service simply head over to PrimeVideo.com to signup. There are apps available for most mobile devices, as well as some smart TVs.

Amazon Prime members in the UK have been able to get access to a very large content catalogue for several years, but it was only available to users in the UK, or on a UK IP address up until recently. Several months ago Amazon made their original content available to users globally, so this new move is a logical next step.

According to an Amazon spokesperson:

“Today, our library features hundreds of globally popular Hollywood movies and TV episodes from top networks and movie studios, in addition to award-winning Amazon Original Series like The Grand Tour, Transparent, Mozart in the Jungle, Red Oaks, Hand of God, The Man in the High Castle and most children’s series like Creative Galaxy, Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street, Tumble Leaf and Wishenpoof “.

Looking at my own account, which I got updated to include video in Ireland, there’s a reasonable selection of 3rd party content available to Irish users of the service.

Whether there are any plans to expand the range of content on offer to include rentals etc., is not clear at this time.

According to the Amazon Prime video site you can expand your existing prime account to give you full access to the videos if you live outside the UK. I’ve had a prime membership for the last few years so I’ll be exploring this option with them. Hopefully I’ll be able to access content using an Irish iTunes account, as currently you cannot download and install the Amazon video app via the Irish store.
